Obituary -- Justin Michael Jacobson 1973-2016

He was born February 13, 1973 in Boone, Iowa. He grew up in Clearfield Iowa and graduated from Diagonal High School in 1991.

 In 1991 Justin spent several months recovering from an automobile accident. During his recovery he found his Lord and Savior. He made a decision to further his faith by attending and graduating from Rhema Bible College in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
