Jessica Meredith Jacobsen died tragically Sept. 14, 2007. Jessica, a graduate of Villanova University, was a group manager in the marketing and investment services department with T. Rowe Price where she managed a staff of 100 employees. Jessica was an avid runner and she enjoyed watching her sons play soccer, basketball and tennis. Jessica volunteered with her neighborhood association and with Immaculate Conception School.
In the words of past Race Director Glenn Thuman: "Through the example set by Jessica, we come together, as individuals, to make a difference in ourselves, our families and our community."
Let us honor Jessica's memory by coming together to raise awareness of intimate partner violence and the importance of Catholic education. This race will help keep her memory alive and will benefit the community activities which her family supports.
In Jessica Meredith Jacobsen’s memory, the Knights Of Columbus Council No. 4011 (Father O’Neil Council) have organized the 12th annual Jessica Meredith Jacobsen Memorial 5K and Fun Walk on Sept. 21st. In addition to memorializing Jessica, an avid runner whose spirit and charitable works inspire us, the 5K supports the House of Ruth Maryland, the ICS Tuition Assistance Fund, and Fr. O’Neil Charities .
