Obituary For Jacob Evan Mathis
Jacob Evan Mathis, 27, passed away suddenly on April 3, 2021.
Jake was born on May19th, 1993 at Nellis Air Force Base in Las Vegas, NV to William (Tony) Mathis and Kelly Gonzales. His grandparents, Billy Mathis (named Jacob), Connie Moses, Alvin Gonzales (beat Jacob’s parents to the hospital), and Diana Gonzales were elated by the birth of their first grandchild!
Friendly and affable, he had countless friends throughout his short life. He was extremely close to his siblings Gabriel, Chooch, Jason and Jennifer and had a unique bond with each one. He loved his role as “Uncle Jake” to his niece and nephew, Marlee Rose and Maverick.
Jake loved all sports especially baseball and hockey. He attended his first baseball game when he was just 9 days old, the Las Vegas Stars. His baseball coach called him “a natural” as he made switch-hitting and fielding look effortless. Let’s go Dodgers! Go Knights Go!
Quick-witted and highly intelligent, his career choices were endless. Much to the shock and horror of his Army recruiter and family, he insisted that he would only join if he was an 11Bravo Infantryman, a Grunt! HOOAH!
He honorably served three, grueling years and fondly reminisced of the man it made him and the lifelong friendships formed.
He was a member of the Local 525 union and worked as a HVAC technician with a great company that treated him like family.
He is survived by his parents, William and Melissa Mathis and Kelly Gonzales. Brothers, Gabriel Mathis (Karysa), Chooch Mathis, Jason Maxie and sister, Jennifer Maxie. Niece, Marlee Mathis
and nephew, Maverick Mathis. Uncles, Sean and Scott Gonzales. Grandparents, Al and Diana Gonzales.
Jacob was light. Jacob was laughter. Jacob was strength. Jacob was reliable. Jacob was loving.
Jacob IS missed.
