It is with great sadness that we announce our beloved son, Joseph Dylan Jacobs, passed away January 15, 2023, in Birmingham, AL at the age of 26.
Dylan was born July 20, 1996 in Birmingham, AL, to Joseph Shane Jacobs and Jessica Weaver. Dylan attended Chelsea and Locust Fork high schools and completed his education in 2015. He worked in various trades following high school, but in the last two years he has been honing his job skills as a plumber. His most loved and important role the last 3.5 years has been being an incredible Daddy to his son, Kade.
Dylan was known for his sense of humor, love of music and fishing. He was a self-taught guitarist beginning in his teenage years and had an appreciation for all genres of music. His favorite pasttime since he could walk was 'wetting a hook', with Emerald Valley Lake being one of his favorite local spots. He took great joy in helping his son, his brother, his cousins, and a host of friends cast their first lines.
Dylan is survived by his son Joseph Kade Jacobs; parents Shane & Lisa Jacobs and Jessica Weaver; brother Colin Jacobs; sister Mary Caroline Jacobs; grandparents Joe & Carol Jacobs, Tommy Weaver, and Richard & Rosemary Parker; aunts Andrea (Jon) Bevan, Kathirene (Brian) Kenney, Marion (BJ) Glasgow; April (Ray) Warren; uncles Joshua Weaver and Dale (Kayla) Parker; first cousins Conner Bevan, Landon Bevan, Noah Glasgow, and Katielyn Warren; along with a host of friends and extended family.
Dylan is preceded in death by his grandmother Libby Weaver; great-grandparents Helen & Tommy Stewart, Anita & Clarence Roberts, Ruth Wicks & Darryl Tucker, and Vernelle & Charles Weaver.
