Our beautiful boy, Jacob Harris Froerer, age 25, passed away in the early morning hours of Sunday, July 17, 2022 in St. George, Utah. He was born to David Eugene Froerer and Lacey Brooke (nee Froerer) Jensen on April 21, 1997 in Salt Lake City, Utah. Jake was raised in Cedar City and lived out his life in Utah and California.\nOn the day Jake was born, his heart stopped beating. Once resuscitated, he spent several days in the hospital under the watchful care of fine doctors and nurses. He was able to go home though he was on a heart monitor for nearly 4 months. The life Jake lived absolutely defied his precarious beginning. With big, bright eyes and a very expressive face, he was on the go from the moment he could roll over. He was extremely impatient and impulsive as an infant and toddler. If his mother did not get to his crib before the fifth cry of “Mom,” Jake would begin stripping the sheets, throwing them and any blankets out of the crib. He was always so talkative and busy acting out his imagination to the point that if it became too quiet, it was cause for concern! By age four, Jake tried to Tarzan off a set off wind-chimes…resulting in a swift drop to the ground, and the air getting knocked out of him—impulsive indeed! To say he was a handful would be a definite understatement. His aunt Falicity, who spent a great deal of time caring for him during those early years, adored him even so, and was very adept at wrangling this human cyclone. Lucky for his parents, Jake had several grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins who were willing to engage with this boy and love him unconditionally. His cleverness and intelligence were on display throughout his childhood; he had a quick wit and a great sense of humor that was often riddled with cheeky sarcasm. . . a genetic trait to be sure. Physically, he had endless, endless amounts of energy coupled with pure athleticism that he poured into baseball and soccer. To watch him on the soccer field was to watch artistry and beauty in action. When not running at full speed, Jake was climbing something—trees, poles, and cliffs to name a few. He took great pleasure in climbing to the top of high mountain ridges; it is easy to remember his signature wave from the skyline and sun behind him. Those who knew him best knew he possessed many natural gifts and talents, especially his love and gift of music. A self-taught guitar player, Jake seemed most at peace when he was singing and playing his beloved instrument. We loved the timbre of his voice, and took great pleasure in watching him become a talented musician. His brothers knew that he truly cared about them; he would always be their brother in every circumstance. In turn, they saw him and loved him for who he was—tenacious, uncompromising, loyal, adventurous, and resilient. His grandpa Perkins surely saw himself in Jake as both were stubborn and unfiltered. As an adult, Jake never lost that strong will and spirit he possessed at birth; it seemed his spirit was simply too big for his body. He lived a nomadic life…he went wherever his feet would take him, often with a guitar in tow. We will miss Jacob terribly, but we take comfort knowing that when his heart stopped beating, he was surely welcomed at the veil by his grandpa Perkins, who likely put him straight to work. We know that Heavenly Father assured him his struggle was over; he could be at peace; likewise, we know that he has met our Savior, Jesus Christ, his beloved brother, through whom all that is broken can be healed.\nHe is survived by the following: his brothers Alex Froerer, Matthew Froerer, Samuel Jensen, and Benjamin Jensen; included are Ryan Gute, Gregory Gute, and Christopher Gute: His parents Brian and Lacey Jensen and David Froerer: His grandparents Marsha Perkins, George (Gene) and Marliyn Froerer, and Bob and Becky Jensen. He is also survived by a generous host of loving aunts, uncles, and cousins.\nHe is preceded in death by his grandpa Daniel Harris Perkins, aunts Diane Perkins and Pamela Hernandez, and cousin Tanner Harris Kelsey.\nFuneral services will be held Saturday, July 23rd, 2022, at 11:00 AM in the chapel of Southern Utah Mortuary (190 N. 300 W., Cedar City, UT, 84720).
