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.
