Always a kind man with a huge heart, Jacob had the knack of easily making new friends wherever he went. Everyone he met instantly liked him because of his friendly nature, his honesty, and his openness. Never one to sit at home, he was always looking to go to town to meet people and to live life. He was always respectful and polite and was willing to help others even at his own expense.
