Steven D. “Jake” Jacobson, 68, of Omaha, Nebraska died Saturday, January 22, 2022, at Bergan Mercy Hospital in Omaha, Nebraska.
Steven Deane Jacobson was born on April 8, 1953, in Storm Lake, Iowa, the son of Darold and JoAnn (Philips) Jacobson. Steve was baptized and confirmed at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Galva, Iowa. He graduated high school in Galva, Iowa in 1971 and Iowa State University in Ames, Iowa in 1975 with an Animal Science Degree. He also belonged to the Alpha Gamma Rho Fraternity, and always looked forward to connecting with some of his fraternity brothers at the Iowa State Cyclone football games.
On November 8, 1980, Steven was united in marriage to Debra Hirsh at St. Peters English Lutheran Church in Newell, Iowa. Together they were blessed with two sons, Shiloh, and Terrance “TJ”.
Steve belonged to King of Kings Church since 1984 after moving to Omaha, Nebraska, where he was an usher for many years. He had a passion for Rugby at Iowa State University and continued on a team in Storm Lake, IA before moving to Omaha, NE. Steve’s greatest devotion was for the game of golf, which he played vigorously and often. He also enjoyed his yearly Pheasant Hunting and Fishing Trips through his work at International Nutrition, where he had been employed as an account representative since 1984 up until his death. Steve was an avid reader, and his favorite author was Tom Clancy which he had the complete collection of his hard cover novels. In addition to traveling, he loved being outdoors attending to his lawn and was proud of his raspberry bushes that started producing the last couple of years. Steve was very rigid in his daily routines and made it to the gym every day for workouts or swimming, and even started boxing in the last couple of years. He was a good and loving Christian man with a big heart who deeply loved his family and always looked forward to spending time with close friends. He will be deeply missed by all.
