Born in Indianapolis on July 2, 1997, he was the son of Gerald J. and Deborah A. Barkas Steineman.
A 2015 graduate of Logansport High School, he attended Ivy Tech, and was currently employed with Alex Paris Construction in Atlasburg, Pennsylvania.
Jacob was a young man full of life; a brother filled with a sweet, outgoing, fun-loving heart, who missed his mother more than anyone realized. He was all about family.
He was a great guy who was always there for others, as he was looked up to as a best friend with never-ending love. Never being shy, he could sing obnoxiously at the top of his lungs to the tune of “Buy Me a Boat” over and over again, with a one-of-a-kind laughter that could bring a smile to anyone present, even in a room full of people he’d just met.
Jacob was an athletic guy, goofy at times. Since he was a young boy, he loved the outdoors, hunting, fishing, racing motorbikes, sprint cars, and quads, and became a team player in football, basketball, baseball, and softball. But when the referee blew the whistle, he would crack his smile that would impact anyone’s heart, look up in the stands for mom, sis, family, or friends, as if to say, “It wasn’t me”, but took one for the team and saying, “It is what it is”.
He was the soul of the game. You betcha that Stein would want you to remember that for 19 years he left everyone with real, full-of-life infectious and free-spirited memories that will last a lifetime for those who knew him.
The Steelers won on Sunday. Darn it, Stein, “We got this!”
Jacob is survived by his father, Gerry (Tammy) Steineman, Colfax; brother, Shawn Lee (Kylie) Delaney, Colliers; sister, Kayla Rae Steineman, Logansport; step-brother, Joey Silva; step-sister, Samantha Silva; three grandmas; two nieces, Addison Delaney and Jayden Delaney; Godchild, Jaxon Simms, and several aunts, uncles and cousins.
Jacob’s mother, Deb Barkas preceded him in death on October 11, 2015.
The visitation will be from 4:00 – 8:00 p.m., on Friday, January 13, 2017, at Kroeger Funeral Home.
The service will be on Saturday, January 14, 2017, with Rev. Scott Ellison officiating, also at the funeral home.
Interment will follow in Mount Hope Cemetery.
In memory and honor of Jacob, it is requested that family and friends wear Pittsburgh Steelers or camo attire at the funeral home.
