Dan Jacob of Raymond, WI. passed away unexpectedly on Wednesday, August 12, 2020 at the age of 51, due to health related complications. He was born on September 30, 1968, in Milwaukee and was a class of ’86 graduate of Union Grove High School, Union Grove. He met his high school sweetheart Connie in 1984 and they married on October 8, 1988 in Kenosha.
Dan had a passion for all things International Harvester. He built solid pulling tractors, painted them red and made them look even sweeter. He was an avid baseball fan and coached every team each of his sons played for and was also the crew chief for his son’s go-kart team. He loved riding his 2007 Harley Heritage Softail that he recently restored, and planning local road trips with his wife.
Dan spent his working career as an excavator, equipment operator and concrete laborer, working tirelessly at everything he did, sunup to sundown. He also had a passion for history and a natural skill for restoration. His love language was service, and if you knew Dan, he has probably done a favor for you.
Dan is survived by his wife Connie (nee Matrise) of 31 years; his son, Kevin (fiancée, Kendra Heidenthal) and his son Brad; his parents, Lorin and Joyce Jacob and his sister, Terri Jacob; his mother-in-law, Linda Matrise and father-in-law, Thomas (Kathy) Matrise. As a loving and devoted brother-in-law, uncle, cousin and friend, Dan is further survived and will be greatly missed by his extended family and many friends. It is our heartfelt belief that the love Dan shared with each of you is still with him.
