Jerry Jacoby, 66, of Marine, passed away peacefully surrounded by his daughters on Saturday, May 29, 2021 at Memorial Hospital. Jerry was a decorated Veteran who retired after serving 22 years in the Army. He was one of a kind with a strong passion for his military days. He enjoyed listening to his oldies but goodies, laughing with his daughters, shooting at the Kline farm, supporting Veterans, and watching Hallmark/Lifetime movies. He was loved by so many and never knew a stranger. He had a great hearty laugh that could light up any room.
He was preceded in death by his father Jerri Jacoby.
