Jacob Dysart

Jacob Evan Dysart left our world for a better on April 12, 2018. He was born in College Station on August 24, 1994 and was cherished by his mother, Lorrie Dysart, his father, Richard Dysart and his siblings; Joshua Dysart of Los Angeles, Rain Nelson of Bryan and Meghan Johanning of Tulsa. He was also deeply nurtured by St. Thomas Episcopal Church and Early Learning Center and St. Michael’s Academy.  Jacob was born knowing how to honor God within himself and there has never been a better loved child. He is greatly missed by many broken hearts.

You are challenged to emulate his life. Never pass a woman on the street without offering her a ride, know that parents everywhere in the world love their children as you do, believe that our similarities are more important than our differences, don’t judge people’s sexuality, be a good friend and show up, defend the helpless at the risk of your own safety, don’t be a bigot, never hit a woman, child, dog or horse; fight racism, work for women’s rights, be willing to go to jail for what you believe, don’t hit people who are biting you, give your savings so a child can have Christmas even if you are only nine years old, do the next right thing, mind your own business, honor your parents, and don’t suffer fools.

Services will be at St. Thomas Episcopal Saturday, April 28th, at 6:00 pm with reception to follow. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to The Shawn Carter Foundation and/or Austin Community First Village.
