Jacob was born on December 1, 1989 in Peru to Jon and Barb (Keeney) Bouxsein.  He married Jessie Hodgson on October 3rd, 2015 at Lake Thunderbird.

He graduated from Putnam County High School in 2008 and attended IVCC.  Jacob was employed as a commercial fisherman and part-time maintenance worker at Lake Holiday. Jacob was also a stay-at-home dad.

He was a duck slave at Soggy Bottoms Duck Club where he enjoyed spending his time. Jacob enjoyed numerous outdoor activities, especially waterfowl hunting and netting carp with his father. He was a gun enthusiast and a proud member of MAGA country. He was a devoted father. He adored his daughter, Ila, who had him wrapped around her little finger. Jacob was a loving husband to his wife and spoiled her with three meals a day to her liking. Jacob made sure to make an impact in his brother and sister’s lives by continuously loving and harassing them. He was committed to his immediate family and frequently enjoyed the company of his mother and father. The unconditional love for his mother, father, grandmother, and grandfather goes without saying. He was a charismatic person who could make anyone laugh or would roast them until they cried. Jacob marched to the beat of his own drum and regardless of his bold personality and sometimes controversial opinions, he was loved and cherished by many.

Jacob is survived by his wife, Jessie and daughter, Ila of Granville; his parents, Barb and Jon Bouxsein of Hennepin; one brother, Nicholas Bouxsein based at Marine Corps Base Hawaii and one sister, Nicole Bouxsein of Hennepin.

He was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents; Robert and Mardell Keeney Sr. and one uncle, Jeff Bouxsein.

Contributions may be directed to a trust fund that has been setup for Ila's education at North Central Bank.
