Don Jacobs was one of my favorites in the class of 1955.  I remember him as strong, gentle and someone I could look up to.  He was also talented at drawing.  I enjoyed his company.

Don Jacobs was one of the most creative, jovial and pleasant people I ever met.  He tried for years to teach me how to swim (unfortunately to no avail); he gave me a winning performance in my production of "Maybe Tonight," the 1954 motion picture I directed that featured most of the members of the CHS Class of '55.   He did amazing things with dust balls from the paper mill where he worked.  Don was a brilliant artist, and created the original art for the CHS Wolf.  He also created a very entertaining comic strip, planted a zillion tomato plants on 8 acres of property, and worked tirelessly at the Don Jacobs Swim School for many years.  He also had a wonderful family.  He and his daugher, Becky, would frequently set out on long excursions.  They came to visit me once in West Los Angeles -- just to stop in and have a cup of coffee -- and stayed for a week.  I truly welcome this opportunity to conjure up memories of Don.  I was proud to say I was a friend of his and I miss him greatly.  I know he is keeping everyone entertained in the heavens.  Continue to rest in peace, my friend.
