Eric Anthony Jacobson
Our Dear Eric passed away on August 12, 2022 after a long hard battle with cancer, in his home at Naples, Goleta, with family at his side.
Eric was born in Albuquerque , New Mexico on January 23, 1959 to Mary Angeline and Eric Nathaniel Jacobson. Eric was the eldest of 5 children.
His siblings Mike (Vicky), Craig, Pauly (Jamie), Monique (Ted) were his best friends, his constant buddies. His Mother Angie was his greatest champion. They spent hours on the phone together, year after year. Eric’s Father and Brother Craig, preceded him in death.
Eric met his future wife and lifetime partner, Jan, in Painted Cave, Santa Barbara, in 1987. They wed in 1989 and with Jan came her two young children, Ryan and Melissa Haggerty. Eric loved them so. Soon they added another Daughter to the family, Julia Jacobson, and their family was complete.
Eric’s children , Ryan (Andrea), Melissa ( Michael), Julia (Lucas) and his 10 grandchildren, Sean, Sieanna, Jaden, David, Mia, Camila, Kat, Aubri, Milo and Levi were his pride and joy. His constant amazement and his reason to keep pushing on.
He also leaves many beloved nieces and nephews and other family members including his Richardson Family and so many friends. Too many to name.
Eric was so very generous and kind. Always funny, never complaining. So humble.
Many days were spent at Haskells Beach with the kids and the surfboards, dogs and extended family.
He was a master at his trade, HVAC, and copper work, and so generous with his time. He was always ready and willing to share his knowledge with others .
We love you Eric. We miss you. Husband, Father, Poppa, Brother, Son, Uncle, friend. We know you are with God and we will all be together someday.
In memory of Eric please pay it forward with kindness and love to others.
