Jacob R. Mothersbaugh

April 20, 1998 — March 24, 2024


Jacob Ross Mothersbaugh, 25, of Sedalia, passed away Sunday, March 24, 2024.

He was born April 20, 1998, in Columbia, son of Eric L. and Lori D. (Anders) Mothersbaugh.

Jacob was a 2016 graduate of Sacred Heart High School. 

He served his country honorably in the US Marines from 2016 until 2020 as an LAV crewman. He attained the rank of Lance Corporal, E-3.

Jacob worked as a substance use counselor for Royal Oaks Hospital in Windsor.

He loved his Jeep and his dog, Sasha. Most of all, he loved being a dad and playing with his daughter, Aspen.

Jacob was passionate, smart, funny and a shining light to those around him. He could put a smile on your face and make you laugh until you cried. He had a smile that would light up a room.

Survivors include his parents, Eric and Lori Mothersbaugh; daughter, Aspen Mothersbaugh; sister, Layne Mothersbaugh; life partner, Briar Collins; and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.

He was preceded in death by his paternal grandparents, John T. and Eva M. Mothersbaugh; and maternal grandparents, Donald G. and Shirley I. Anders.

Honorary pallbearers will be Dave Moreno, Nick Anders, John Smothers, Brock Cooper, Weston Farnsworth, Hannah Orell and a host of other friends.

Private graveside services will be held at a later date in Highland Sacred Gardens.

Memorial contributions are suggested to the Herren Project, a charity for substance abuse treatment, recovery, and prevention, in care of Heckart Funeral Home.
