Helping Families and Friends Honor Their Loved One

Jacob Davis Holcomb, age 33

Jacob Davis Holcomb was born in Gulfport, Mississippi, on July 26, 1988. He passed away at his home in Monroe, LA on Thursday December 9th, 2021.

Jacob’s battle with drugs started at a very young age beginning with marijuana. As the years progressed his habits became more and more addicting. Eventually turning to harder and more serious drugs. Jacob spent his life searching for that high. He battled many demons in his life and drugs was one that he could not overcome and win. His mother Lisa Cox devoted her life to fight the battle and help him overcome his addiction. “Heroin told him, ‘I can make you feel accepted, I can make you feel alright, I can make you feel worthy, I can make you feel normal, I make you feel loved and I can make you feel nothing and make you feel like everything will be okay.’ What it didn’t tell him was how it would devastate his family and tear it apart, take his job and leave him penniless, take his home and make him homeless. How it would take his sparkle and smile, how it would take his humor and how it would take and take and take until it took his life.”

To know Jacob was to love him. He was a very outgoing and likable guy. He never met a stranger. His famous words were let me get that lil cuz. He had a huge heart and was always willing to help anyway he could. He loved watching his Mississippi State Bulldogs and the Saints. He was known for his constant movie quotes such as “Mom the meatloaf now.” His biggest accomplishments were his children. Landon Charles Holcomb, Evie Mae Holcomb, and soon to be Finn Richard Holcomb.

He is proceeded in death by his grandparents Fred and Blanche Holcomb, brothers Jeremy Richard Allred, Jason Charles Holcomb, Aunt Gayle Bourdin and very special uncle TT Thomas Lance Terry.

He is survived by his Children, Father Kenneth “Kenny G” (Tonya) Holcomb, Sisters Lindsay Featherston, Nikki (Kevin) Helm, Jessica Jeffcoat, Nikki Holcomb, Grandparents Richard and Linda Allred, Nieces Lilly and Lucy Featherston, Layla Helm, Nephews Mason Featherston and Liam Helm, Brother in Law Marshall Featherston, Aunts Stephanie (Hugo) Sanchez, Wendy Bourdin, Martha Batson, The rest of his Mississippi family, Cousins Kaylin Fikes, Noah Terry, Joesph Tankersley, Matthew Terry, Long time best friends John Crow and Nick Carnathan, His precious dog Stella, and the person who meant more to him than anything his precious Mom who he loved more than the trees, more than the water, more than stars, and more than the sky. You will always be her sweet baby boy.

Our family wants to thank everyone for the prayers, messages, and calls. Our families pray is for Jacob’s story to live on and hope it saves a life. If anyone is struggling with addiction there is still hope and it is not too late to ask for help.

    Words cannot begin to describe how sorry we are that Jacob lost this battle. He will never have to fight this again. He’s having a good time with his brother Jeremy and Uncle TT! I’m praying that Jesus wraps his loving arms around all of you family members and that you find comfort in knowing that this struggle is over and that he is finally at peace. We love you guys dearly and cannot begin to imagine what you’re going through.

    What an amazing obituary to read. So powerful and so giving of the family to be so honest and forthcoming. Jacob’s life had a purpose and the God I know and love is so full of mercy and love that He WILL change people’s lives because of Jacob. And to Lisa, Jacob’s mom, may God’s peace engulf you, calm you and heal your broken heart. Much love sent to you all.
