I did not know Steven/Jake Jacoby. I am his 3rd cousin and I want his family to know how much we pray for you Jake and your family.

Jake, on this anniversary of the date you left this planet for heaven, I just wanted to say I remember you. I worked for Brad from Daniels and Associates who spent many, many years with you and Bill and the other Musketeer whose name escapes me now! You were such a hard worker and I know your family and friends will always miss you and think of you lovingly.

I did not get the chance to meet Mr. Jacoby personally while working at Metrocall but saw the profound effect his passing had on those who did know him in our office. RIP Mr. Jacoby. I will never forget you or that day! Your family will always be in our thoughts and prayers.

I coached Steve when he played pony baseball in Rutherford a suburb of Harrisburg, Pa. I remember he was a very good player and easy to coach. I lost track of him after he moved up in the system, but I am not surprised that he turned out to be such a fine young man. I was shocked and saddened to hear what happened to him. I pray that his family will be comforted in their loss. I pray that they will be richly blessed by God.

TODAY, thinking of you, Steve. I remember in the Metrocall days, with Jake, Roberto, and the Greensboro NC office. Jake moved to San Diego. I had fun back then. Hi to all Metrocall, previous employees, and take care!  Sarah

Jake - may you be at peace and looking down upon your loved ones, blessing their days. I think about you often and am still saddened at how your life was cut tragically short. that day was a very bad day....but all of us who knew you, remember the good, and will keep you forever in our hearts.

I worked with Jake for several years at Metrocall.

I worked for Metrocall on 9/11/01. I was in Northern CA and getting ready to head to Los Angeles to meet the rest of our team for a trade show. After watching the events of the day unfold we were notified one of our leaders Mr. Jacoby was on one of the planes while heading to the show. I remember the company memorial we all attended via call with the family. Please know that 10 years later The Jacoby family remains in my thoughts and prayers. God Bless...

I did know Steve, He was on the "Marketing committee" back when we opened Cellular One of Amarillo (TX), in August of 1987, along with several others. Loved his wisdom, loved his values and have so much respect for him. Was still working for Cellular One 10 years ago at CTIA in California during 9/11. Was absolutely horrified when I found out "Jake" was on this flight! Love and prayers to the family!

Steven Jacoby was only one of many who were caught in the web of terror on that fateful day. I had the opportunity to meet Steven at a Christmas party when I was employed at Metrocall in Pensacola. He was a polite, quiet-spoken man, who seemed to enjoy his job and the respect of his colleagues. I was saddened to hear of his demise in the senseless act that was orchestrated by a rebellion. What a waste of precious human life!
Rest in peace Steven

I did not know Mr. Jacoby. I do want everyone reading to also say a prayer for his son, Nicholas. Nicholas was killed in an automobile accident on April 1, 2011, along with his two best friends. A family friend said that if there is a golf course in heaven, they are teeing off right now. Please keep this family in your prayers.

Steve's dad, Jerry, and I were cousins. My mother, Luella, and Jerry's mom, Bea, were sisters. I did not know Steve/Jake nor his family, but I trust that Jake rests in peace.

I went to college at Shippensburg with "Jake" and we were both in the TKE fraternity. He always had a smile on his face and was good hearted and good natured. I just learned today of his passing nine years ago. God bless to his family and Godspeed Steve.

I never knew Steven and had never heard of the name until today. On the campus of East Carolina University there were students handing out armbands with the names of fallen victims of 9/11 on them. Steven's name was on the one I received and it really made me want to find out his story and send my regrets to his family. I know that by all the posts on this page, he was greatly loved and to all who knew him, I am sorry for your loss.

I knew you as a great young man and Bill Collins you came to my wedding on March 5,1988 in McAllen, Texas and weworked together on the Cellular One Project for Frank Scarpa.

I enjoyed working with you and never met with you without the smile that was always on your face. I can probably speak for most of your friends and aquaintences, you were and still are in my mind,and winner. I thank God he allowed me to be in your life and you in mine for the short time. My best to your family that had to be devistated on 9-11-2001. I know I was, As I alsolost a 2nd cousin David H. Rice in the NY Trade Center.

I look across my desk to Jake's picture every day, but it's always on this day that the memories tug harder. Jake was a close friend in Va. during the years that I will always count among the best of my life. He was blessed with a broad presence and an infectious smile... which made even our arguments amusing.
Today, I both miss him and give thanks for the brief time in which he enriched my life.
You will never be forgotten.

Last night I watched a documentary by National Geographic about 9-11. It made me wonder about a name of a person who I had read was a victim of one of the plane crashes. After searching the internet I found that the "Steven Jacoby" I knew was one of the victims of the Flight 77 crash. I thought I would add some bio that I knew about Steve, or as someone else called him, "Jake," which was short for "Jacoby."  I knew him since 4th grade at Rutherford Elementary School, Rutherford Heights, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. He lived about five houses from the school and playground, so we were at his house often. He was active in sports, and I remember he was quite good at baseball. As someone else added previously, his mother's name was Doris. My mother knew his mother from high school. My mother was Doris also, and both had the same maiden name less one letter, and they were sometimes confused for each other. Steve graduated from Central Dauphin East Senior High School, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, class of 1975. I hadn't seen Steve since graduation. Rest in peace, Steve.

Share your feelings and memories of grief and sadness concerning the 9-11-2001 attack, or of positive memories.  If you knew this person, help us to build a small 'bio' of the person and share with us something about his/her life:

  • what kind of person he/she was, 
  • what nice points you remember about him/her, 
  • what kind of relationship you had with him/her, 
  • what you two perhaps did together, 
  • what he/she meant to you, 
  • or other things about him/her might be especially encouraging for other people.
