Obituary

Funeral Service Recording

Jacob Alexander Green was born in Arizona on June 6, 2001, to Robert Glade Green and Kristie Ann Green. As a young child he enjoyed going on walks and playing with his toys. One of his favorites was Thomas the Train. He also loved his pet cat, Amanda.

When Jacob was five years old, he moved to Utah. Jacob attended Silver Mesa Elementary School, where he particularly enjoyed Mrs. Miller’s 1st-3rd grade classes.

After a couple of years in Utah, Jacob’s mother relocated to Colorado and Jacob moved to the Cottonwood Heights area with his father. During Jacob’s youth he loved to hang out with his cousins, watch movies, and be involved with Cub Scouts, and later Boy Scouts. Jacob was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. He attended church each week, and always tried to participate as much as he could. Jacob also enjoyed spending time with the young men in his ward and attended Youth Conference and Scout camps with them.

When Jacob was ten years old, Robert married Bonnie, and with her daughter Lexi, together they became a family. Jacob now had a younger sister! Having a little sister was very exciting to Jacob, and he always would refer to himself as “the big brother.” Lexi and Jacob became very close and were a great help to each other. Jacob continued to enjoy his movies and often he would be found scooting down the hall to his room to get a DVD to watch. He continued to love his cat, Amanda, and a second pet cat, Lilly.

As Jacob grew older, he attended Union Middle School and would eventually move to South Jordan, Utah, where he attended Bingham High School. Jacob continued in Boy Scouts, and while at Bingham participated in track, went to school dances, attended seminary, and enjoyed being with friends. He would later graduate with a Certificate of Completion from Bingham.

After completing high school, Jacob attended South Valley School. He took part in many activities, a highlight being a work program where he “worked” at Macy’s grocery store and Sam’s Club.

At the beginning of 2020, Jacob moved into the Mission at West Jordan Care Center. While in the care center Jacob made many friends and was loved by everyone he met. Jacob attended Kauri Sue Hamilton School, where he made more new friends, and especially liked his therapy swimming.

At the end of January 2022, Jacob contracted RSV. Jacob passed away peacefully on February 4, 2022, at the Mission at West Jordan Care Center.

Jacob was a loving, happy soul, and a wonderful example of Christlike love to everyone he met. He touched the hearts of many and will be greatly missed.

Jacob is survived by Robert, Bonnie, Lexi, and many other loving family members.

Good luck sweet boy in your new adventure. We love and miss you and look forward to being with you in the next life, where we can once again hear your crazy laugh!
