At least they only killed themselves as sad as it is. Let's see here, 2:45am, speeding. I don't suppose they were under the influence.

I heard through the grapevine the person killed was Curtis Jacobs from Belton, MO. Is this true? I graduated with Curtis and know his older brother.

I hate that people dont think before they post on here when they say such insensitive things they dont think about the familys and friends. Johnson I hope nothing like this ever happens to you or your family because u often post rude and insensitive things usually when carma comes back its 10x's worse. My prayers are with this man and his family!!

I worked with Curtis. All around here people are in shock, his name on a lot of peoples tounges. He was a nice man, very friendly, very smart, and we all really liked him. My prayers are with the Jacobs family in this dark hour.

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 lilozangel1@yahoo.com.
I thought Curtis drove a dark blue Sebring Convertable. Was this the Curtis I knew?

Johnson, you're an idiot. I am Curtis's bother-in-law and he did not drink or do drugs. He was a great father to his children and will be deeply missed by all that knew and loved him. He was employed by the Department of Defense and had received an emergency call to report to the Bannister facility. An yes his daughter is due on Thursday.

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.

I worked with Curtis at GE (old ERC) for 3 years. I am very saddened by his death and my prayers for his daughter and son. I never knew a better patriot, harder worker always hungry for knowledge and I idolized his devotion to his children. A good man down. God bless Curtis and his children.

Okay, my condolences to a great man. I am glad he didn't kill anyone else in his accident involving excessive speed on a public highway. I wish he had used better judgement for the sake of his children, family and friends. RIP.
