Obituary: Hess, Jacob Michael

Sun., Jan. 12, 2014, midnight

HESS, Jacob Michael On January 1, 2014, beloved son, husband, brother, and friend Jacob M. Hess, Sergeant, US Marine Corps, lost his life during a 7-month deployment to Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom.

Jake is survived by his wife Bridget Hess; mother Keirsten Lyons; father Michael Hess; brother Cameron Hess; grandparents Lynn and James Brink and Robert and Charlene Hess; and in-laws Ismael and Sara Ramirez; as well as numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.

The public is invited to a memorial and celebration of life service on Monday, January 13th at 1pm at the Life Center Foursquare Church, 1202 N. Government Way.

A reception for family and close friends will follow.

In lieu of flowers, the family is asking that donations be of a more enduring nature.

Jake became a regular blood donor at 16, a regular platelet donor at 18, and had the unique privilege of being a bone marrow donor at the age of 20; literally giving the gift of life to someone he had never met.

If you would like to honor Jake and bring a lasting legacy to our family, please consider becoming a donor in whatever way you are able.
