Cody Jacobs, son of Clarence Jacobs and Marjean Schwehr, passed away at the age of 34 on July 22, 2010, at Medcenter One in Bismarck after being involved in a motorcycle accident on the evening of July 21.
He is survived by his wife Kimberly Jacobs and his three children Eric 5, Brian 4, and Violet 9 months. He is the second-eldest of seven children Desiree Slatkin, Jake Jacobs, Harley Jacobs, Rosann Jacobs-Fode, Sally Jacobs, and Chris Jacobs and is preceded in death by his Grandmothers Gwen Schwehr and Eleanor Jacobs and his Grandfather Ed Schwehr.
Cody was born in Gillette, Wyoming, on September 25, 1975 and attended school in McIntosh, SD, where he was an accomplished wrestler. He graduated from Bismarck High School and enlisted in the Marine Corps before attending college at North Dakota State University where he met and married his wife, Kimberly. He completed his degree in geology at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and moved back to the Bismarck area where he worked as a well-site geologist eventually commuting between Alaska and Bismarck.
He was devoted to his family and friends and lived every moment as if it were his last. He sought adventure and loved hunting, fishing, and being outdoors when he wasn't working on his jeep or riding. His children idolize him, and he loved every moment he had with them. Strength radiated from Cody throughout his life, and he made all those around him feel safe and protected. His smile and laughter will forever be in their hearts. He was taken from this world too soon.

Services will be held at 10:30 on Monday the 26th at St. Mary's Church with the burial and flag service to follow at the North Dakota Veterans Cemetery in Mandan.
