Jacob Marc Collings
July 28, 1999 ~ April 13, 2019
Jacob Marc Collings, born July 28, 1999 to loving parents Marc and Victoria in Pocatello, Idaho returned to heaven on April 13, 2019. The second of four children and only son he was an amazing big and little brother to his 3 sisters, Kenadee, Brinlee and Bailee. He lived his life with passion and enthusiasm but like a warrior he battled in a civil war with his brilliant mind. Jake fought OCD, anxiety and depression on a daily basis and we are so privileged to be a part of this valiant warrior’s time on earth. Jake was filled with an abundance of talent, friends and love ones. Most days, his brain wouldn’t let him see that. Never an unkind word or a raised voice from him. Always thoughtful, kind, empathic, loving and gentle. He had a brilliant mind – graduating from Weber High School with highest honors and attending Southern Utah University on a presidential scholarship. Jake left us behind the evidence of his brilliance in his music, photos, art work and writings. For that we will be forever grateful.
