August 19, 1966 ~ January 8, 2023

Born in: Houston, Texas
Resided in: College Station, Texas

Angela Jacobson, 56, of College Station passed away on January 8, 2023. Visitation will be on January 13, 2023, from 6:00 pm-8:00 pm at Grace Bible Church (Anderson). Graveside service will be held the following day, January 14, 2023, at noon at the Aggie Field of Honor.

Angela was born in Houston, Texas to Lawrence and Thelma Louise Park. They lived in nearby Sugar Land, Texas. Angela grew up being active in a number of sports and activities, including being a member of the Dulles Dolls Drill Team at Dulles High School where she graduated.

Angela went on to be a cheerleader at Houston Baptist University. It was here where she met her future husband, Eric Jacobson. They dated and feelings for each other remained after she transferred to and graduated from Texas A&M University. Angela was a loud and proud member of the Fightin’ Texas Aggie Class of 1991. She graduated with a bachelor’s in Kinesiology.

Upon graduation, she began her teaching career as a P.E. coach at Spring Branch ISD. It was at this time she and Eric rekindled their relationship. Eric proposed on a park bench in the historic square of Taos, New Mexico and they were engaged. They wed on December 19, 1992, and were married for just over 30 years. A few years later they welcomed their first child, Cheyenne. Six years later they welcomed their second child, Hunter, into the world.

Over the course of her career as a teacher, Angela has taught at a multitude of childcare centers, and districts. These include Towne Creek Preschool (Missouri City, Texas), Spring Branch ISD (Houston, Texas), Fort Bend ISD (Sugar Land, Texas), Bryan ISD (Bryan, Texas), Christ United Methodist School for Little People (College Station, Texas), Covenant Presbyterian Childcare Center (College Station, Texas), Navasota ISD (Navasota, Texas), First Baptist Child Care Center ( College Station, Texas), College Station ISD (College Station, Texas), and International Leadership of Texas (College Station, Texas). Though she held many positions including P.E. coach and second grade teacher, the majority of her career was spent teaching Kindergarten. She had a gift for teaching her “kinder babies” and setting them up for success. She was always an advocate for her students as well as her fellow teachers. Her goal was to always do what was right for the children and to support teachers who held those same beliefs. Through her experiences, she held four different teaching certificates and earned the designation of Master Teacher.

In addition to being an exceptional educator, Angela was a devoted wife and mother to her family. She was a strong supporter of her children’s activities and interests. This included being a 4-H leader and club manager for the Brazos County Equestrian 4-H Club, where she supported Cheyenne in her pursuits in playdays, rodeos, mounted drill team, and horse judging. She also supported Hunter through his pursuits in baseball, Boy Scouts of America, cross country, and track and field events. Angela supported her children in anything they did and simply would “make it happen” for her children– whether this meant driving across the state for contests or providing first aid when needed. There was nothing that she believed her children could not achieve. This is evident in the accomplishments of her children.

She is survived by her husband of 30 years, Eric Jacobson, and their two children, Cheyenne Jacobson and Hunter Jacobson; her parents, Lawrence and Thelma Louise Park; her brother and his wife and daughter, Derrick Scott, Kristi and Kelsey Park; brother-in-law, sister-in-law and their two children, Dr. Vernon Hendrix III, Denise, John, and Katie Hendrix; and as well as cousins and their children.

Her family would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the nurses and doctors at the Cancer Clinic in Bryan, Texas, and the nurses and doctors at MD Anderson-Texas Medical Center in Houston, Texas, who cared for and fought with her through the last almost four years. Additional thanks are extended to Hospice Brazos Valley.

In lieu of flowers, Angela asked for donations of school supplies to be made so that they may be donated to kindergarteners in need. She felt that with the proper support and supplies, local kindergarteners would be set up for success as they begin their educational journeys.

Guestbook

  1. Angela was one of the most patient and down to earth people you will ever meet. She was never afraid, and always the first the truth and do the best for kids. She will be missed by thousands of her former students who are better people because they learned the foundations of life in her kindergarten classroom.

  2. The world was better because of Angela. She taught my oldest in kindergarten and was such a sweet kind soul. She will be missed.

  3. Cheyenne, Hunter, and Eric: Angela was so special to me and my kiddo at Rock Prairie! I met Angela when I was hired mid-year (Dec 2011) and just before I was to start teaching my kinder class (January 2012), my fiance (Jeff Hejl) died.

    Angela took me under her wing and literally held my hand and got me through that semester. I became the school counselor over that summer and intentionally held my kiddo back from going to 1st grade and placed her in Angela’s class.

    Once again – Angela held our hands and made such a difference in the life of my kiddo! My heart aches for y’all, and I know you will hear more stories like mine in the days and weeks to come! She was such a blessing to so many of us! We KNOW she is pain-free and in the arms of our savior! That comfort helps while we miss her so deeply! Sending you much love!

  4. Dear Jacobson & Park families, I’m incredibly sorry for the loss of Angela and deeply saddened. She & I were childhood friends – elementary thru high school. We reconnected on Facebook some years back and I am so glad we did. You may remember me as “Bubbles.” I still go by that nickname, but went by my “real”name In the working world-Anneth. Please know I will think of Angela, along with my husband, John, who is also in heaven. Much love you to all of you. Anneth (Bubbles) Hethcoat Winkler

  5. My heart breaks at this news. Mrs. Jacobson taught my oldest in kinder at Spring Creek and she still talks about that class as a middle schooler. Angela just had a way with the kiddos to make them feel safe and loved. There are no words to describe the impact she had on so many young lives. Sending prayers for all of you.

  6. Angela was the little sister I never had. She led a beautiful life and even though I had not seen her in years, I feel this loss through her bother Scott who has been and always will be my brother. God has called her up to serve on his team in heaven and while we mourn the loss with her family, we rejoice in knowing she has been welcomed into the Kingdom of Heaven to serve God our Father.

  7. So sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with your family. She was always smiling just like this picture of her.

  8. Jacobson Family,
    So sorry to hear about Angela. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers.
    Sending sincere condolences to the entire family.

  9. Dear Jacobson family,
    I cannot tell you anything you don’t already know. Angela’s loss is tremendous for everyone who had the opportunity to meet her.
    She was my supervisor, mentor, and friend. I miss her very much. What I recall most about her, in addition to her dedication to the school and her team; was how she was always there. Always willing to help, to lend advice and guidance, and always, no matter what, had our backs. She was a true leader, the kind of which only come around once in a lifetime.
    She was one of a kind, and the kindergarten hallway will never be the same without her.
    I will forever be thankful and grateful to have had the opportunity to work as part of her team for the last five years.

  10. Our paths haven’t crossed recently but memories of Angela in association with 4H are clear that she was indeed a first class lady. My deepest sympathies to Eric, Cheyenne, Hunter and family.

  11. Jacobson family,

    I was blessed to have met Mrs. Jacobson! Not only was she my supervisor, partner teacher and mentor, we quickly became family. I enjoyed listening to her family stories which she made them come to life. She was full of joy and brought joy to every room she walked into. It will not be the same without her but I know she is watching over us and yaya will always be here for us. We love you Mrs. Jacobson!

  12. Our paths crossed so many times, but thankfully they aligned in June 2020 when AJ and I began to work together. From the beginning, we clicked, sharing so many likes, compassions, and jokes! She was such a caring person, truly putting others in front of her own needs. If you were part of her tribe, you knew it and you felt it. While my heart is broken and I miss her so very much, I rest in the fact that because of her faith and trust in the Lord, she is healed and stands with joy before the throne of God waiting for everyone else.
    Eric, CJ, and “Man-Child” you are in my thoughts and prayers.
    AJ-I miss you so much, but we’re gonna be ok ❤️

  13. Very shocked and saddened to hear this news. Deepest condolences to the Jacobson and Park families for the loss of Angela, a true child of God. Heaven’s gain.

  14. Mrs. Jacobson was such an integral part of my life growing up. She was like another mother to me, hauling Cheyenne and I to 4H and FFA contests alike. She always had a bright personality, a wise word, and a big hug waiting for you. She will be greatly missed. I will forever cherish our times together, whether that be in arenas, fairgrounds, missing the exit and getting lost on drives or even in the classroom where she helped me learn the ropes of teaching elementary (even if it just taught me that it takes someone as special as her to teach it).

    Keeping the whole family in my prayers,
    Laura Bornefeld

  15. To the Jacobsen family –

    My family and I extend our most heartfelt condolences for the loss of your beautiful mom and wife. I go way back to Dulles Dolls days with Angela. She will forever be remembered by all of us as the warmest, sweetest most genuine of friends. Her beautiful outside matched her inside ❤️ Love and prayers to you all.

  16. I am so sorry for your loss. Your mom was a wonderful person , an awesome classmate and a good friend. I am sad to hear this news, I can tell she was a great teacher and helped tons of people and the kids she taught were lucky to have her a their teacher.

  17. Angela was very loving and caring person. The way she spoke so proudly of her husband and children is something I will always admire. I’m grateful to have worked along side her at ILTexas. She was a loving mama bear who took such care of her kinder teachers and her kinder babies. She was my son’s kinder teacher the first year we opened the school and I will never forget the encouragement she gave to him and our family. She will always have a special place in our hearts because of the tremendous impact she’s made in the lives of countless children, families, and colleagues at ILTexas. We miss and love you Mrs. Jacobson!

  18. Mrs. Jacobson was my granddaughter’s, Zeda Jentoft’s, kindergarten teacher at IL Texas. She was so loving and kind as Zeda adjusted to school and new routines. None of us will forget the patience,
    kindness, and loved she showed to Zeda and all the children as they transitioned. I will be praying for your family.

    • I had the privilege to teach with Angela at the CSISD and at IL Texas. We shared our love and faith in Jesus Christ, as well as our passion for teaching children. She was sincere, genuine and beautiful outside and inside! She leaves a wonderful legacy, and I know we will be sharing the Kingdom of Heaven one day again. Dear Cheyenne, Rick , Scott, and Family, we are praying for the days ahead and for comfort from our Heavenly Father. With all my love Magda Zietsman
