For "Hawk" - The Hawkinson Family

With extremely heavy hearts, we are writing about the sudden passing of Jacob Hawkinson.  In his 42 years, Jacob was, in all senses, larger than life.   A loving husband, an adoring father, a forever son, brother, uncle, nephew, grandson, cousin and friend, Jacob left this world way too early.  “Hawk”, as we called him, was warm and compassionate and will forever be missed. 

Jacob leaves behind many loved ones, including his wife Nicola, his daughter Mikaela(18), and his sons Caden(16), and Max(13).  Anyone who knew Jacob, knew how much his family meant to him.  He would do anything for them and he was always beaming with pride about their accomplishments.

Originally from Texas and a graduate of the United States Merchant Marine Academy, Jacob was devoted to his country.    He worked hard while also never forgetting to enjoy life. 

“Hawk” was not only an amazing father and husband, he was also a very hard worker who helped to provide a wonderful life for his family.

We would like to help our dear friend Nicola by creating a savings fund for their three children, and ask you to help show support by donating .

Heaven gained a larger than life angel, and we know that Jacob will be watching over Nicola and the kids, and his family and friends, for the rest of their years.  

Thanks for all your support!
