Jacob Daniel Edward Kopp

Jacob Daniel Edward Kopp was loved by nearly everyone he met. He viewed the world through a unique and comical lense, and he was sure to share this view with the people he knew. If nothing else, you knew that if Jacob was around, you would be laughing. Really hard. 
Jacob was highly intelligent. He loved to read, and devoured books that ranged from fantasy to philosophy. He would talk for hours about the books he read, and loved to share his insights. He was deeply spiritual, and enjoyed learning about different faiths. Jacob also loved music and going to concerts. He was a talented bass player, and was a part of several bands throughout his life. His creativity was boundless, and it was reflected in his writing. 
Jacob was witty, compassionate, and kind. He was resilient and a free spirit, and he didn’t let the many difficulties he faced turn him into a hardened person. Regardless of what happened, he always had the biggest heart. Jacob cared up until his last moments, and the world will not be the same without him. 
Jacob is survived by his father, Jeffrey Eugene Kopp, his mother, Vicky Lynn Finney, and his siblings: Audrey Beth Rankin, Arthur Julius Kopp, James Christian Kopp, Phillip George Kopp, and Maryann Alexandra Kopp. He is also survived by nieces, nephews, grandnieces, grandnephews, and countless friends. 
We are all deeply saddened and devastated by his untimely passing, and feel a void that only he filled.
“Buy the ticket, take the ride.” We love you, Jacob.

Thank you for your beautiful words of comfort, Aunt Kathy. I am sorry I just saw them, but you know these past few weeks have been a whirlwind for all of us who were close to Jake. Thank you for your support and for showing that you care about us all, and how much you cared about Jake. *hugs*

I had not seen Jake in many years. The last time I seen him I had stayed a couple weeks and was able to visit with him and his whole family. Jacob could always make me laugh even when he was not trying to be funny he just had that kind of way about him. I know he was loved by many people especially his family. In my belief and with my God I truly believe Jake is at peace now. God has other things and plans for him and his time on earth was up but ,make no mistake he is around all of you that loved him and we will meet him again one day. Lets just say Jake knows something we don't know yet and he is in a beautiful place .Thinking of you every day Jacob. You are soaring with the Angels now. God Bless you love and prayers aunt Kathy.

I remember when you guys got to meet Danny Carey at the Baked Potato. Then he gave that jerk he was dating those coveted drum sticks! I could have killed him! LOL Ah, well. He loved her, and you know how Jake was when he loved someone. Thank you for this, Suga Shane. We love you, brother.

Man, those memories are so good that it hurts my heart remembering! We really had so much fun together. I miss the hell out of you, and I wish we all could have listened to some Type O Negative together before he passed. BUT we will always have that concert at the House of Blues! OMG I am so so so grateful we got to experience that together. I love you so much!

Your words are so beautiful and powerful that they made me cry. He would have been so happy to have read this. You know he would have cried. Hell, he would get teary when I would message him just to say I loved and cared about him. You were always cool to him, and I will always be grateful for that. I also hope and pray that wherever he goes, whoever he is with, they appreciate him and love him more than the folks in this existence did. I love you so much.

Maryann Kopp Nov 26 2020 12:00 AM

He was all of those things, and i know that sometimes it is hard to remember, especially if he was talking ----! LOL Love you, Janet. Thank you for this.

Maryann Kopp Nov 26 2020 12:00 AM

This was also beautiful and made me cry some more! Thank you for taking the time to really put a heartfelt message together. He is deserving of that and much more. I love you, and I will post the peas story and the picture, if they will let me. I hope they do. Jake loved you like family, and I hope you know that.

As kids, our family always ate dinner together at the table, no television on, and prayers were said before we ate. My dad is...well, a colorful sort of gent. He basically could not only make sailors blush, but he could make them pass out! Anyhow, one day, when Jake was super young (maybe four or five?) he looked up during dinnertime and said, "Would you pass the f-in peas?!" Some of us laughed, but my dad was not amused. I guess he could see where his influence was taking Jake! I still laugh thinking about that.

Maryann Kopp Nov 26 2020 12:00 AM

Im not even sure what to say. Though I hadnt seen you in a while I always knew that when I did itd be like we just saw each other yesterday.

I have thought about you often over the last few years and it hurts my heart to know I wont get another chance to spend the day talking about any and everything. You were a good dude and I am glad that I got the opportunity to know you.

I hope that you are at peace in whatever comes after this life. Ill miss you dude. RIP
