Jacob Peyton Coleman, born on March 19, 2002, was a cherished son, loving brother, and devoted friend. Jake passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, August 1, 2020. We know he has returned home to a loving Father in Heaven and is surrounded by family who adore him. We are grateful for the years Jake was allowed to be a part of our lives here on this earth and know that his influence will always continue in our hearts.

Jake enjoyed making other people smile. He had an incredibly bright mind, quick sense of humor, and an enormous heart. He often thought of others that suffered and how he could be of service to them. His friends often called him, “the counselor” and would seek him out in times of challenge or trial.

The void in our hearts now begins to be filled as family and friends begin to share with us their fond memories of Jake. We welcome those memories of his life and your experiences with our son and brother.

One of Jake’s favorite quotes  was, “Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. But today is a gift, that is why it is called the present.”

Jake would want all of us to live in the present, to love those around us, and spread hope where it is needed.

Funeral services will be held Tuesday, August 11, 2020.

  • About a year or two ago, we sat behind your family at church. Jake was sitting next to the isle & I watched him as he held the songbook & sang all the hymns. I was so impressed that I mentioned it to my husband when we got home. What a good example! (And he has a great smile!)

  • Our family has your family in our hearts and in our prayers. Loving you all so much. I wish I had better words that could somehow help, and I don’t even know what to say. But know that we love you all and send our deep condolences.
