Jacob enjoyed hunting and fishing. He had a great passion for Ralph Lauren polo shirts and Nike shoes. Jacob was adamant about looking "fresh" at all times. His loyalty for his family and friends was remarkable. Jacob's life revolved around his family; daughter-in-love, Harmony Strickland; and girlfriend, Africkah Moore.

Jacob had the sweetest spirit and lit the room with his contagious smile and joking attitude. Jacob was a protector of his family and loved ones. There wasn't anything he wouldn't do to help someone.

There was nothing compared to the love and compassion he had, in his heart.
