Final expenses & funeral costs for Jacob Farley

$36,777 of $40,000 goal

Raised by 826 people in 1 month
On Friday June 21, 2019 Jacob Farley lost his life. He was on a float trip in Noel, MO and was on the bank of the river. Jacob saw a woman, a complete stranger,  drowning at the dam area and jumped in the water to save her. The current made it impossible for them to escape. They were trapped in a hydraulic current at the base of the dam. The woman had a small float and Jacob kept pushing the woman back on the float to keep her head above water. 
The fire department arrived and were able to throw a rope out and Jacob selflessly let the woman take the rope. She was pulled to shore with her float, but Jacob went under and did not resurface. 
He didn't think twice about jumping in to save a complete stranger. He is a true hero and died saving someone else's life with no regard for his own. 
Jacob leaves behind a 3 year old son, Kingston, any remaining funds will be set up in a trust fund for his education. 
Our family is asking for any amount that you feel comfortable donating to help us with his final expenses. 
Jacob was selfless and brave and he lived his life they same way he lost it. Helping others.
Please continue to pray for our family.
