Posted by mcauleyhighschool on May 1, 2015

Matthew Jacoby, loving husband of Alicia Rooks Jacoby, and father of two beautiful daughters, Angela and Lauren, at the age of 58, passed from this life surrounded by his family on Monday, April 20, 2015. After graduating from Saint John’s High School in Toledo, Ohio, Matthew briefly toured Europe before returning to study at Ohio State University where he obtained his Bachelor of Science in accounting. After working at accounting firms in Ohio, Dallas and New York, he came to Nacogdoches to attend SFA where he earned a Master of Business Administration. It was there that he met his future wife. After working at Alexander, Lankford & Hiers, he began to work for Commercial Bank of Texas in 1988, eventually serving as executive vice president and chief financial officer.

Matthew had a unique sense of humor, enjoyed being active and embodied a character of moral values. He served on SFA’s Business Advisory Council, was involved in the Nacogdoches Community Coalition and was a member in Kiwanis International. He received a “born again” experience at Eastside United Pentecostal Church in Nacogdoches and later made Christian Life Center UPCI his and his family’s spiritual home. He served there as treasurer and as a board member. Esteemed by his co-workers and the community alike, Matt will be greatly missed.

He leaves to cherish his memory his wife, Alicia; daughters, Angela (Martin) Lopez and Lauren Jacoby; mother, Betty Lyons Jacoby of Perrysburg, Ohio; brothers and sisters, Michael Jacoby of Ohio, Bart (Svetlana) Jacoby of Ohio, James (Rocio) Jacoby of Illnois, Andrea (Thomas) Brady of Ohio, and Jeanne Jacoby of Michigan; and a host of nieces, nephews and other relatives. He was preceded in death by his father, Gerald J. Jacoby, on March 12, 2009. Many thanks to the wonderful people from Matt’s church and work family, and to friends and neighbors for their support and many prayers.
