Jacob Daniel Schroeder, age 39, passed away on September 5, 2019 surrounded by close family after a life fraught with the medical issues associated with cerebral palsy.

Jacob is survived by his mother, Doris and father, James; his sister, Lisa; brother, David (Gwen); and twin brother, Joshua (Fran); nieces and nephews; as well as extended family.
Jacob will be truly missed.
