"Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints." Psalm 116:15. Elder Kelvin Gene Jacobs, Sr., 48, was born September 15, 1964, to the union of the late Eugene Jacobs, Sr. and Irma Lee Jacobs, in Sunshine, La. Visiting at New Light Baptist Church on Saturday, Oct. 6, from 9 a.m. until service at 11 a.m., conducted by Dr. A.W. Azoney. Interment in Southern Memorial Gardens. He was happily married to Angel Ennis Jacobs for 18 years and to this union, two sons were born. Kelvin graduated from Lee High School in 1982 and went on to work at LSU in the Animal Science department. He worked there until his father became ill and he made the decision to quit his job and help out with his dad at home until his death. He later worked at Knottingham Court Apartments and Central Plumbing Company. After 10 years of working with Central Plumbing, Kelvin prayed about an entrepreneur venture and God granted his request. He used all of his skills from previous jobs to start K.G. Jacobs Home Maintenance. He also worked part time delivering newspapers for The Advocate. Kelvin accepted Jesus Christ as his personal savior at an early age and was baptized. He later was called into the ministry at the age of 24 and was the associate pastor of The Greater United Baptist Church in Baker, La., where he had a passion for sharing God's word and winning souls for Christ. He was interested in Missions and joined By His Grace, Inc.; a World Missions Corporation and traveled to Africa with them seeking to be all he could be for the Lord.
