STODDARD — Jeffrey A. Jacobson, 53, of Stoddard died suddenly of natural causes Monday, Jan. 19, 2015, at his home.

Jeff was born May 16, 1961, in La Crosse, to Burton L. and Alice Mae (Wagner) Jacobson. He attended La Crosse schools and was a 1979 graduate of La Crosse Central High School. At the time of his death, Jeff was employed at The Company Store.

Jeff was known as a generous man who was always willing to help out or lend a hand when needed. He loved the outdoors especially when he was out tending to his garden, grilling on the back deck, or hunting, which he enjoyed doing when he was younger. He was also a music lover, especially ‘70s rock, and seldom missed an opportunity to play cards with family and friends.

Jeff is survived by his brother, Gary (Karyn) Jacobson of Sparta, and their children, Tamara and Aaron; the love of his life, Nelle Skau, and her children whom Jeff saw as his own, Jerod (Kristi) Skau of Des Moines, Iowa, and Nissa Danks and Jamie Danks (fiancé, Jarod Benson) both of Stoddard; and was affectionately called “Grandpa Jeff” by Grace, Jakob, Ryder and Gage. Jeff is also survived by many aunts, uncles and cousins and numerous friends.

He was preceded in death by his father in 1985, Burton, and his mother in 1999, Alice.

Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. Friday at Schumacher-Kish Funeral and Cremation Services, 200 West Ave. S., La Crosse. The Rev. Scott Skogen will officiate. Burial will follow in Stoddard Cemetery. Family and friends may call from 4 until 7 p.m. today at the funeral home and again from 10 a.m. until the time of service Friday.
