Kevin Matthew Jacob, age 51, of Johnsburg, passed away peacefully surrounded by his loving family, on Sunday evening, June 14, 2020, at his home.

On January 7, 2017, Kevin married the love of his life, Cindy True, at Calvary Assembly of God Church in Crystal Lake.

Kevin worked for 27.8 years at PPG Industries in Oak Creek, Wisconsin, before his illness forced him to retire.

Kevin was the life of the party, and will always be remembered for his sharp wit and sarcastic humor. He enjoyed 80's music, watching NCIS, War Movies, and sports, especially the Green Bay Packers, Wisconsin Badgers and the Milwaukee Brewers. Kevin was active in his Men's Bible Study Group and loved hanging out with his grade school friends and his buddies at the Plav. Just a side note, Kevin loved Zingers.

Kevin is survived by his loving wife, Cindy Jacob of Johnsburg; children: Matthew Wiza and Amanda (Chris) Cortez, both of Racine, WI, Taylor (fiancé Kyle Fair) Korus of Portage, IN, and Matthew Korus of Madison, WI; grandchildren: Brennan and Hadley Cortez; and his furry canine companion, Preston.

Kevin is preceded in death by his father, Richard Jacob; brother, Ricky Jacob; father-in-law, William True; sister-in-law, Diane Kuck; and paternal and maternal grandparents.

We don't know what to say. Love this guy.My special memory of Kevin was whenever we would see Kevin and Cindy at the PLAV he always knew my name and who I was. That maybe doesn't seem so significant to some people, but as his health declined he did have trouble remembering names and who you were. We would joke about the fact that he could always know my name and I was so honored to know him and lucky to have spent many Friday nights talking and hearing his open and honest and sharing about his illness. He was such a brave man and an inspiration to anyone going through this horrific disease. He was so open and accepting of his fate. He must have had such a faith in a better place. God Bless this man for the courage he had to live life and to face death with such dignity. John and I were so blessed to have know Kevin. When we meet again---Kevin--- we will know your name!!!
