Jacob Daniel Ursing, “Jeb”, “Jebediah”, “J-Money”, “Yeebus”, “Jay-Pup”, “Jake”, and “Cousin-Boy” to his younger cousins, 25, of Taylor, passed away unexpectedly on Friday, September 9th, 2022, at his home in Taylor, MI. He was born December 6th, 1996, to James and Joan Ursing.


Jacob was a gentle heart, a kind soul, and a beloved son and brother to his family.  He grew up wrestling with his brothers, David and Joshua, playing GameBoy, and soaking up attention as the youngest (and sassiest) of 3 boys in Southeast Michigan. His warm, caring personality started early, where as a child Jacob could be found hugging classmates who were crying after their parents dropped them off at school. Beyond his immense compassion for others, his ‘do what’s right’, unmatched work ethic continued through every year of his far too young life. Forever a night owl, his late night talks with friends and family about life, music, God, gaming, and just about anything imaginable will be forever cherished.


Multiple cross-country road trips with his brothers and cousin and years of legendary (i.e. massive) Port Austin bonfires later, Jacob earned his degree in Criminal Justice from Henry Ford College while working first at McDonalds, and later with S & G Auto. He most recently worked for and was loved by his colleagues at UPS in Romulus. Whether laughing till sunrise watching hilariously bad B movies with family, giving his brother grief about how much better Android is than Apple, or being climbed on like a tree by his younger cousins, one thing was always constant—Jacob’s glowing, boundless smile. To know Jacob was to know unconditional love in its purest sense, and to know that all these years later he was still the same kid looking for who needed a hug the most.


In lieu of flowers, the family would much prefer a donation be made to one of the following charitable causes:

  • Jake “coffee” was very sweet and never had anything negative to say about anything. I am glad I got to befriend him when I did. I can’t believe that he is gone… I remember us hanging out with Eric and I would always try to make him laugh. The easiest was was to call him frog. He will be so very missed by many!! My thoughts go out to his family and friends. You will be forever missed Frog!!! Becca Simm

  • Jake was a coworker of mine. I talked to him every day. We always made jokes with everybody around us and he always made us laugh endlessly. He was such a hard worker and was so friendly and easy to talk to. The belt isn’t the same without him. We miss him everyday. He was such a kind, caring soul. He knew how loved he was not only at work, but at home too. Rest easy Jake, we miss you. Vanessa Krause
