Brian Scott Jacobson born October 1, 1969, was called home on Thursday April 2,2020 in Gilbert Arizona after a long battle with heart disease. He was born to Jake and Marcia Jacobson in Santa Cruz California.

In 1999, he met Kirsten Campbell at the War concert at the County Fair while playing “Low Rider”, it was love at first site. On November 27, 2004, they were married.  Brian led a very happy active life filled with family and friends. When Brian was younger, he had quite the talent as an artist, taking after his mother.  He was also known as the “funny guy” with all his imitations. After his cardiac arrest in 2006, he became a little quieter but still had the sense of humor appear every once and a while. He was always good at dropping “one liners”, such as “Are you picking up what I’m putting down?”, “It will feel better when it quits hurtin’?”, “Don’t threaten me with a good time”, “That’s not hot”. Brian also had many nicknames throughout his life such as, “Briwan from Taiwan”, “Breakobson”, “Whistling Pete”, and just “Bri”. Some of his favorite things were Skittles (He always had them in his pocket to slip to his nieces and nephews), Jalapenos (Really peppers of all kinds as long as they were hot), mountain dew, and food prepared by his brother in law “Chef Dave” (Also his Chiropractor). He loved the outdoors, riding his bike around until he got his license back and was able to get his very own truck, “Big Red”.

On October 25, 2007, Brian and Kirsten had their miracle baby boy, Brandon Jacobson. Brian was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  Brian, Kirsten and Brandon were sealed together as a family for time and all eternity on May 10, 2014 in the Gilbert Arizona temple.  Brian was always willing to serve and help anyone in need.  He was a quiet, gentle and kind man with a contagious smile, he will be greatly missed!  He loved being an uncle and spending time with all his nieces and nephews.

Brian was survived by his wife, Kirsten: son, Brandon: parents, Jake and Marcia: brother, David and wife Marie: brother Steve and wife Michelle: father in law Dwayne Allen: sister in law, Casie Huff-Campbell, brother in law Brent and wife Allison Campbell: brother in law Dave and wife Dara Campbell: brother in law Scott Campbell.

    We love you all! Brian was and will always be a wonderful man. We remember him just as you described him, kind, soft spoken, gentle and brave.

  • Brian will be missed! He was always happy; had a smile on his face. Made you wonder if anything ever got him down. I have never seen it!
    I loved his relationship with his family. They would tease and laugh and you could tell the bond they shared as a family.
    I appreciate Brian and the meticulous job he would do taking care of my yard. There was no mistake that Brian was there when he left.
    I have only known Brian and his family for a couple years. I was around when he was last hospitalized with heart trouble two months prior to his passing. My dad was in the hospital at the same time with heart trouble and was a couple doors down.
    Brian left his mortal body suddenly and during the time of a world crisis of corona virus; COVID 19. The world was quiet, people isolated, and yet this is the time that the Lord called Brian home. With all the isolation and people staying home it was an opportunity to serve the Jacobson family, which was a blessing for is who know this family.
    Brian’s passing was sudden, but I feel there was a purpose in this and at this time. I don’t know what that is, but the Lord does, and that is what we have to believe.
    Kirsten and Brandon, I send my love and pray for comfort for you and your family at this time of loss. Hugs! Pam
