Jacob Carl Williams

Jacob Carl Williams, 15, of Oaktown, passed away Friday June 30, 2017. He was born on July 19, 2001 in Terre Haute, Indiana to Craig and Kim (Haag) Williams.

Jacob would’ve been a sophomore at North Knox High School where he had participated in baseball, basketball, FCA, Student Council, and Spanish Club.  Jacob attended the Mariah Creek Christian Church and enjoyed snow skiing, playing with his dog Leo, hanging with his friends, and loved searching the internet for the latest shoes.

His life on earth may have been short but his impact will be long lasting. He loved God and was not ashamed to let God’s light shine through him. His prayer would be for all who knew him to live their lives for Jesus! #livelikejacob
