Not sure what to say?

He was an outstanding naval aviator, and few PBY Catalina flying boats in the Philippines in 1941, and many dangerous war patrols in the East Indies in 1942. Great example! Thanks, Art... Fair winds and following seas, always and evermore.

God bless Commander Jacobson as a member of 'the greatest generation'! We didn't know him but we all owe him and his comrades an eternal debt of gratitude! May he rest in peace!

I am eternally grateful for Art's big heart and generosity when it came to my brothers. They were only ten when my father died and Art graciously took time from his busy schedule to spend time with them and take them flying. I don't think he realized how much it mean to us all. Their friendship continued for the last fifty years.

Art was a true friend to our family and flew with my dad in the war. He will be missed greatly. Appreciate all that you did in life. You will live in our hearts and prayers.
