Steven James Jacobsen passed away peacefully in his home in New Orleans, LA on April 26,2020. He was 68 years old. He is survived by his two children, Gregory Jacobsen (Tracy) and Laurin Jacobsen, his grandchildren, Riley Jacobsen and Julia Jacobsen, and his brother, Thomas Jacobsen (Gail), as well as his beloved nieces and nephews. He is preceded in death by his wife, Bonnie Standige Jacobsen, his brothers, Richard Jacobsen, and Julius Jacobsen, Jr., and his parents, Julius and Pearl Jacobsen.
Steven was a lifelong resident of New Orleans. He graduated from Holy Cross Senior High School then was enrolled for a time at the University of New Orleans where he met his wife of nearly 27 years, Bonnie. Steven was a trained electronics technician and worked in the field until his retirement in 2006.
Steven will be remembered as a kind and loving father, uncle, brother and friend. He never met a face he didn’t like, and was always up for a chat when his kind neighbors would pass by, or when he popped into his favorite local coffee shop where he was a known regular. He was liked by all who knew him and will be very dearly missed by all those lucky enough to call him family.
Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic restriction, the funeral service and memorial will be held at Jacob Schoen & Son funeral home at a later date.
