Kyle Jacobs‘ legacy continues to live on.
“While this celebration was long in coming, it was necessary for us, his parents, to cope with the shock of his passing, and to work through adjusting to this life without our beloved son,” his family said in a statement to People on Sept. 27. “Thus, Kyle’s Celebration of Life was created and presented in a thoughtful and thorough way to best honor how Kyle lived his life.”
Calling Jacobs as a “lover of life,” the family remembered how he “earnestly showed love and brought joy to countless others he did not even know.”
“Remembrances continue to come to us daily,” they continued. “He was known for his genuine, humble spirit and an ability to touch another person’s life in a moment.”
