Thomas J. Jacoby was born on April 24, 1948, in Philadelphia, PA, to Arthur B. Jacoby Jr. and Mary T. Jacoby. He and his family moved from Pennsylvania to Lake Worth, Florida in 1959 when he was just 11. He went on to attend and graduate from Cardinal Newman High School in West Palm Beach, FL. In 1967 he joined the Army at 19 years old, where he served his country in Vietnam and was honorably discharged from service in 1973 as a Captain. A short time later he moved to California where he met his first wife Barbara and lived for a few years before finally settling in Texas where his love for recruiting developed and where he had his two boys Jon and Tommy. In 1992 he met and married his wife Patricia in Arlington, TX (married on December 28, 1992), where they lived for nearly 30 years before recently downsizing and moving to Ft. Worth until his passing.

The service for Tom will be held at a future date early next year to be determined, an update will be made to this obituary as well as his social media profiles once this date/time is determined.
