Hackensack Cemetery Sign
Richard Outwater Jacobson Grave Maker


This grave marker, which is at Hackensack Cemetery, located at 289 Hackensack Avenue Hackensack, New Jersey reveals that Richard O. Jacobson served in the U.S. Army Air Corp during World War II, serving in the Pacific, He was born in 1924. 

The grave marker does not list his date of passing, which is the first time I have ever come across this situation. 

Richard O. Jacobson was not on the Original Wall Unit List, which is in Hackensack High School, but this confirms his connection to Hackensack by being buried within its borders since passing and forevermore.
