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.
