How can people be so "rude" and so "insensitive". I was always taught if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all! Plus, "NEVER" ASSUME... I'm with his brother-in-law "Johnson, you're an idiot". My prayers and thoughts are with Curtis Jacobs and his family. My very "deepest" heartfelt sympathy.
Could you please post the arrangements or email them to me at [email protected] I went to school with Curtis and would like to pass the information on to other classmates. I'm praying for you all.

"Visitation will be 5-7 PM Thursday, September 30, at CrossRoads United Methodist Church 700 QuickTrip Way Belton, MO. Funeral service will follow at 7:00 PM. A graveside with burial will be 2:00 PM, Friday, in Kiefer Cemetery on V Highway Edwards, MO. Contributions suggested to Wounded Warriors"

Very sad. Curtis was great, and will be missed by all who knew him. My prayers are with his family.

Johnson, I was the recipient of all of that concrete that exploded when Mr. Jacobs ran into it. I thought that I was going to die and my car is completely totaled. I am neither angry or resentful, so why are you?
You can't believe everything you see or hear on the news. They also said there were no other cars involved which is utter crap. There were at least three cars and one semi involved.
I, for one, cannot get his family out of my mind. When my car was skidding down the road all I could think about was my son and how I might never see him again. Once I realized that I was safe but that the man driving the car that hit the barrier wasn't I also realized that somewhere there was going to be a family grieving his loss. Yeah, it sucks that my car is totaled and yeah, it scared the crud out of me, but I still get the chance to kiss my son good night. His family will never get that again and I can't imagine how terrible the last few days have been for them. They deserve respect and the chance to grieve without having to defend his character.

I went to high school and college with Curtis. He truly was a gifted and loving person. My prayers go out to his family and friends.

My daughter was the one hit by the concrete and I thank God she is ok. I have Mr Jacobs family in my prayers. I can only imagine the pain and grief. Please think before posting comments that will cause them more pain.

I was so saddened by the news. Curtis was my brother in law and was a great father. My heart goes out to his children especially with his daughter having his grandchild at this time of such tragedy.

I just heard that my friend Curtis Jacobs was killed in that horrible accident on HWY 71. I am so sad for his family and all of the people he touched. Curtis was on my show during a 2008 Presidential Debate, and offered his views. He was kind, thoughtful, and very smart. We have exchanged many emails thru my years at KMBZ and I am honored to have known him. May God hold his family in his arms through this terrible time. My prayers are with all of Curtis's friends and loved ones. Darla Jaye

My condolences to this great person. Very humble and caring gentleman to all of us. I worked with Curtis at GE Insurance Solutions (former ERC) for little more than 3 years. I can't remember a day Curtis coming to office without a big container full of PopCorn. Really enjoyed the time with him. My prayers and heartfelt thoughts goes to this great man and to his family.

I was a friend of Curtis'. We worked together at the Bannister Complex but I hadn't seen him in a couple of years.
I would like to attend his funeral. Please one of the family members email me his arrangements at [email protected]
I thought Curtis drove a dark blue Sebring Convertable. Was this the Curtis I knew?
Curtis bought the silver car a few months ago. His blue convertible is still sitting in my driveway.

Curtis bought the silver car just a few months ago. His blue convertible is still sitting in my driveway. The doctors were trying to get Curtis to have heart test done because he had been having chest/stomach pains for over a year. He had found he had a gallstone and was waiting until he gad that surgery before he would let them do heart test. We think he might have had a heart attack which caused him to run off the road. He was not drinking. He had his phone set to ping him if a computer went down at work and often had to go in during the night. He was going into work to do something.

Perhaps you sent a lovely card,
or sat quietly in a chair,
Perhaps you sent a funeral spray.
If so we saw it there.
Perhaps you spoke the kindest words,
That any friend could say;
Perhaps you were not there at all,
Just thought of us that day,
Whatever you did to console our hearts,
We thank you so much,
whatever the part.
Thank you for all the kind words & thoughts. Mom
