Jacob Alan Stoops, 18, of Arcadia, passed away on Saturday, May 6, 2017 at St. Vincent Hospital in Indianapolis. He was born on August 19, 1998 to Kerry Alan and Tamie Renae (Huskins) Stoops in Noblesville, Indiana. His father preceded him in death.
Jacob was a senior at Hamilton Heights High School and was currently serving an internship with Chrysler Corporation in Kokomo. He attended Amana Missionary Baptist Church in Kokomo. In his younger years, he played basketball, soccer and ran track. Jacob's love for mechanical engineering and knowing how things worked led him to build his own computer at age 14. He loved learning about anything from cars, computers, politics, nature, food and the food industry, the government, conspiracy theories, animals, chemistry, machines, anything! The amazing part is he could watch a video and read and article and then tell exactly what he learned. He enjoyed riding 4-wheelers & snowmobiles, working on cars; and roller coasters (especially Cedar Point). He loved his dogs, friends and family and enjoyed every moment he could spend with them. Jacob had received a 2-year scholarship to attend Ivy Tech Community College next year.
He is survived by his mother, Tamie Renae Stoops; maternal grandparents, Elder Rick & Virgie Huskins; paternal grandmother, Janice Fisher; aunts & uncles, Richard & Kimberly Huskins, Cory & Lisa Huskins, Misty Dawn O'Neal & Dan Morrison, and Craig & Ann Stoops; his girlfriend, Nikki Wanczyk; and several cousins and other friends.
In addition to his father, he was preceded in death by his grandfather, Rex Stoops.
