It is with deep regret that we inform you of the passing of a great man, humanitarian and friend, Don Jacobs.

Don was a successful businessman, and he shared his success with those who needed a hand up in life.

“Don was a man who did well, certainly, but also was a man who did good,” said Cecil Dunn, Executive Director of the Hope Center. “As far as the Hope Center goes, he and Cathy have been very loyal supporters. They have been generous givers. There are hundreds of people who have felt the benefit of their kindness.”

Long-time supporters of rebuilding lives, most recently Don and Cathy Jacobs built the Jacobs Hope Cafeteria on West Loudon, a beautiful facility which serves breakfast, lunch and dinner to hundreds of homeless, veterans and mentally ill clients every day. They also built the Don and Cathy Jacobs House which houses men in recovery, veterans, employment and mental health programs.

“Don is more than generous. He was involved and cared about his community, and the plight of others,” said Mr. Dunn.

As part of his Hope Center involvement, he has supported events, capital campaigns and emergency shelter renovations plus the One Parent Scholar House. He, and his wife Cathy, will always be a part of the Hope Center family. He was a man who put his caring into action and he will be greatly missed.
