The memory, of Lt., Mark Jacobson is, alive and well, at his alma mater, Aquinas, High School, (Class, of 1963) in La Crosse, Wisconsin, where a trophy case, gifted to the school in Mark's memory, by his parents decades ago, was recently refinished and made to look new again, as part of my son Robert's, (Class, of 2009) Boy Scout, Eagle Project. This included a search, of school archives and published news accounts, resulting in the addition of a framed Senior portrait, of Mark and a brief biography that are displayed, in the refurbished case for all who pass, through the Cameron Street, entrance to see. It has been an honor to refresh the spirit, of Mark's character, his dedication to country and his self-sacrfice, so that he may long be remembered, by the Aquinas family.

Lt. Jacobson was my platoon leader. He was a good man, and went out of his way to protect his men. I have thought of him often over the years.

  Remebering Mark
Posted for: MARK NELS JACOBSON:
I remember Mark as extremely bright,energetic and with a great sense of humor. We both served in the military during the war, it was a tragic war and
Mark was a great loss as were all the young men, our friends who were lost there. I was very said to find out that Mark died there and actually ran across Marks marker
while walking through a cemetary adjacent to
my Mom's apartment complex. Mark showed so much promise and was of great pride to his
family he will always be missed and remembered by his friends. I located Marks
name on the wall in D.C. .... it was an
awesome experience. Tim Maher
