Paul Jacobson, 52, of Mount Pleasant, passed away unexpectedly at the Henry County Health Center on Tuesday, June 21, 2022.
Paul was born August 5, 1969, in Glencoe, Minnesota, the son of Thomas and Janet (Collins) Jacobson. He graduated from Waconia High School and St. Paul Tech Trade School. Paul lived in Minnesota until moving to Fairfield in 2015. On October 24, 2015, Paul was united in marriage to Megan Wenstrand in the Lake of the Ozarks. The couple and their six-year-old son Cadon moved to Mount Pleasant earlier this year. Paul achieved his lifelong dream of owning and operating his own company when he opened Eagle One Printing. He was currently working at Innovairre in production management. Paul was a member of the Swedesburg Lutheran Church, First Lutheran Church in Fairfield and the Mount Pleasant Golf and Country Club.
Before moving to Iowa, he was a longtime member of the Island View Golf Club in Waconia, Minnesota, and would make a special trip back every year to play in the Alumni Cup. Paul loved to spend time at his parents’ home in Minnesota, catching walleye on their lake, Little Birch. He was a Minnesota Vikings and Minnesota Gophers fan. Paul loved giving his Iowa Hawkeye In- Laws a razz by wearing as much Minnesota Gopher gear as he could to family dinners.
More than anything, Paul loved being Cadon’s “Papa”, and spending time with his family. Paul was a kind man who had a zest for life and loved connecting with people. He was loved by so many and will be deeply missed by all.
Paul is survived by his wife Megan and son Cadon of Mount Pleasant; mother Janet Jacobson of Melrose, Minnesota; two brothers, Thomas (Kimberly) Jacobson of Eden Prairie, Minnesota, Chad (Kristine) Jacobson of Plymouth, Minnesota and many nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his father Thomas D. Jacobson.
