It is with great sadness that we share the passing of our 2019 Buddy Walk Sponsorship Chair, Sharon Jacobson.
As a devout Catholic, she lived her faith in service to others, serving on the Saint Joseph's Altar Society and coordinating the Meals Ministry to provide support to parishioners experiencing difficult times. Sharon also participated in a Random Acts of Kindness group and greatly enjoyed being able to make a difference in the lives of others. For 10 years, she was in charge of obtaining donations for the silent auction to benefit the school at Saint Joseph's annual Holiday Fair, working tirelessly to secure monetary donations and donations of auction items. After the loss of a granddaughter with Down Syndrome, she directed her fundraising efforts to raising money for Down Syndrome Advocates in Action Nebraska.
We are are so honored to have gotten to know Sharon and learn from her strength and devotion to helping others.
DSAA Ne would like to express our deepest sympathies to the Sharon's family on the loss of their beloved Mother and Grandmother We are beyond honored to have been chosen as one of the organizations to receive memorial donations in Sharon's memory. Her legacy will be to help advocate for the value, acceptance and inclusion of individuals with Down syndrome. Memorials can be sent to DSAA NE, 6425 Taylor Park Drive, Lincoln NE 68510
