May 20, 1987-July 21, 2014

Jacob Lee Hanson, 27, spent his younger years in Pine River where he attended Pleasant View Elementary School. The family moved to Deer Lodge, MT, in 2000 where he graduated from Powell County High School in 2005. He attended two years at MSU Bozeman when he then decided to enlist in the Army in 2007 and was assigned to the 101st Airborne Division at Fort Campbell, KY. He was selected to attend the United State Military Academy at West Point in 2008 where after completing three years he chose to return to the Enlisted Ranks. He was then assigned to Fort Carson, CO, HHC Brigade, 3rd Armored Brigade Combat Team 4th Infantry attaining the rank of Sergeant.

On July 13, 2013 he married his sweetheart, Jessica Fjermestad. Jake was a kind, loving husband, son, and friend. He would do anything for anyone.

He is survived by his wife: Jessica; father and mother: Roger and Marla Hanson, Deer Lodge, MT; birth mother: Kathy Faulkner, Florida; grandmother: Char Berbrick, Florida; grandfather: Jerry Thuss, Wisconsin; and many aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends all over this country, including special friends Scot, Cory, Bob, Kyle, and Zac.

Jake loved the outdoors…especially fly-fishing. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, snowboarding and wakeboarding. He had a way of making friends (brothers) wherever he went. Some of his greatest adventures and making trouble were with Scot, Cory, Bob, Kyle and Zac. Jake loved to steal Kyle’s guitar to try and teach himself how to play.

Though Jake’s life was short, his accomplishments were great. He lived more in 27 years then most do in a lifetime. He will be missed and never forgotten.

The funeral will be held on July 30 at 11 a.m. at the Jewell Funeral Home, Deer Lodge, MT.
