Jacob Norman Browning, an incredibly brave boy that, through his extraordinarily meaningful life, taught many the power of unconditional love.  Jacob was born with a rare muscle disorder, Myotubular Myopathy, at birth, he defied all odds and despite the challenges he faced, his courageous fight, determination and contagious joy for life inspired all that knew him intimately, as well as those who knew of him through others.  Jacob would quickly steal the heart of anyone he met with his sweet spirit and smiling eyes, and those in his presence would instantly fall in love with him. His enthusiasm and perseverance to rise to the occasion of any challenge required of him always impressed his teachers and therapists. 

In Jacob’s extraordinarily meaningful life he has forever transformed those who loved him and he leaves a legacy of hope. He accomplished many things, perhaps the greatest of which is that Jacob modeled for us the unconditional love of God, and for that we are forever thankful. Although, as Jacob’s family, our hearts are saddened that he is no longer with us physically, in reality, Jacob is living BIG in our hearts today. We rejoice that he is in the presence of our Heavenly Father, fully whole and healed. 

As a family, we will continue to share the impact that his life has had on us as a family, as well as the many people he has touched.  Thank you for helping us to spread the message of Joy and Love in honor of Jacob.
