Jacob was a sweet, beautiful soul. He enjoyed laughing and spending time with all of his family. Jacob was a part of a group that some may not understand, but that group is the best of all. He whole heartedly loved anyone he met; he loved like Jesus and was the closest thing to Jesus here on this earth. Jacob was a strong little man and fought many battles that most would not make it through. Jacob made a huge impact on so many people in his short time here on earth than most people make in a full lifetime. He was the most perfect little man.
Jacob is survived by his mother, Tami (Ed) Neely; sister, Morgan (Mark) Smith; brother, Kyle (Peyton) Dearman; maternal grandmother, Floyce Lee; paternal grandparents, Byron (Jo) Dearman, step-mother, Angelia Dearman; step-sister, Ayden McDill; step-brothers, Bailey McDill and Ethan McDill; step-grandparents, James (Sue) Cockerham; nephews, Wyatt May, Kole Dearman, Watson Smith, Alex Smith, and Colby Smith; niece, Wrenleigh Smith and several aunts, uncles and extended family members.
