Benjamin Jacob

January 27, 1977 — January 24, 2023

Benjamin Earl Jacob passed away unexpectedly on January 24, 2023 at his home in Sandy, Utah at the age of 45. As of this writing, the cause of death has yet to be officially determined, but as he had many medical conditions and had suffered several small strokes in recent months, it is likely that a sudden stroke took his life.

Ben was born on January 27, 1977 in Greeley, Colorado. His military family lived in Cheyenne, Wyoming at the time, but the military base didn't have a place for maternity care so they provided for care in Greeley or Fort Collins instead. Hence, Ben was born in Colorado instead of Wyoming. He spent his early childhood in Cheyenne, Wyoming, then Salt Lake City UT, Mesa AZ, and later attended school in Saint George, UT. He joined the Air Force at age 19.

Ben married his sweetheart, Alicia Bright on February 3,1996. They were later sealed in the Bountiful temple. Together Ben and Alicia raised three wonderful daughters - Aubrey, Antiquinee (Quinn) and Maviny. While in the Air Force Ben worked with precision calibration and as a medical technician. He especially enjoyed the time he spent in the pediatrics department. They were stationed in Utah, Mississippi, Florida, Idaho, Alaska and Arizona. Following their time in the military, the family moved back to Utah and lived in West Jordan and most recently in Sandy. Ben loved sports, animals and spending time with his family. He was devoted to his wife and children.

Ben was preceded in death by his grandparents, Earl and Louise Jacob and Spencer and Alida Heiner. He is survived by his wife, Alicia Bright Jacob, his three daughters, Aubrey Osborne (Thomas), Antiquinee, and Maviny. He is also survived by his father, Roger Dale Jacob and step-mother Mary Jacob, his mother, Sandra Heiner Card and step-father Royden Card, his brother Joe Jacob (Kayla), his sister Jana Heckel (David), his brother David Jacob (Janna), his brother Michael Jacob (Whitney), and his step-sister Cherise Moss (Jason). He is mourned by many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, in-laws and friends. He will be dearly missed.
