Obituary for Jacob T. Ferriter

It is with the heaviest of hearts that we announce the untimely passing of our beloved Jacob Thomas Ferriter, 22. Ten years ago, Jake suffered a traumatic brain injury in a horrible skiing accident, and on the morning of November 3rd, 2017, he died from on-going complications from that tragedy.

Jacob was a vibrant, loving young man who made sure everyone in his midst received a welcoming hug and a warm, generous smile. Our lives have been enriched beyond words because he was with us.

Jake is survived by his adoring mother, Angela Marie Ferriter, his aunt Rebecca Wiley, who is more like his sister, and Dominic McGinnis, a cousin who became his brother. His father-like grandfather, Jack Ferriter and his wife Debbie, and grandmother, Nancy Wiley played a prominent role in his short, yet remarkable life. His stepfather, Randy Jones, and stepbrothers, Nick and Drew, his biological father, James Brown, Auntie Laura, Papa Mike, Aunt Lauren, and countless others were all significant followers in Jacob’s Journey.

Services will be held at Petkus & Son Funeral Home, 12401 S Archer Avenue in Lemont, IL on Monday, November 6th from 3-9pm with a brief service taking place at 7pm.

In lieu of flowers, the family respectfully requests that donations be made in Jacob’s memory to the Shirley Ryan Ability Lab (formerly The Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago). www.sralab.org
