Jake Jacobsen 1936-2019
Jake and Mary Ann Jacobsen were both passionate volunteers who took part in many of our rescues. At the rally in 2015 their sign read “We are here to protect the horses”, and they meant it.
Mary Ann wrote a beautiful book about the rescue of Diamond, (after he lost his hoof in a cattleguard at Butcher Jones) When Mary Ann passed away in 2017, a part of Jake was missing, but he always maintained his happy attitude for everyone around him and was ready to make another volunteer laugh anytime. Jake found solace and peace with the horses that they both loved so much.
This morning Jake joined Mary Ann. We will miss him dearly and they will both always be part of our SRWHMG family. We offer our sincerest condolences from all of us to their family.
Rest in peace Jake Jacobsen and Mary Ann. You made a difference.
