George was my uncle. He and my older sister was born the same year. So he was more like a brother to me than an uncle. When we lost him, my children were 6 and 4. My husband had joined the Texas Department of Public Safety in 1967, having only served 6 years. My father had served in Bexar County as a deputy for many years. The loss all of our Jacobs Family suffered was multi-pronged and deep. I think of his widow, her children Mechelle and Vince often. They were so very young. How they bravely moved ahead is remarkable. God bless all who serve and protect.
