Jacob Schiffner was born on January 31, 2000, to parents Terry and Tara (Zoschke) Schiffner. He was the first of three siblings. Born in Shakopee, MN, Jacob grew up and lived in Prior Lake. He attended school in Prior Lake and played both baseball and football. Some of his very best friends in life can be traced back to the athletics that Jacob participated in. His love for competition and baseball had him going all over the country with some of his best friends to play in tournaments. Jacob’s strong-willed personality was great to have in athletics. He never gave up even if the game was going poorly.
Being outdoors was always important to Jacob. He developed a great passion for both fishing and hunting, at a very young age. Jacob’s family passed on their love of being outdoors to him. The friends that he hung out with reinforced this passion. Not a whole lot would keep Jacob from one of his fishing or hunting trips. Even if he couldn’t convince one of his buddies to tag along with him, he’d still go out by himself and have a great time. Luckily for Jacob, he had a great group of friends, so that didn’t happen too often. Jacob and his crew of close friends did almost everything together. Jacob’s outgoing personality made it easy for him to make new friends wherever he was. Many Families considered him one of their own.
When Jacob wasn’t enjoying the outdoor or with friends, he spent days perfecting his craft installing carpet and hardwood floors for Above All Hardwood Floors. Remaining active, Jacob was always busy after-hours assisting family and friends with construction projects. Again, he was most happy just being around people and doing something!
Jacob is will always be remembered and loved by his mother, Tara Schiffner; father, Terry Schiffner; brother, Justin Schiffner; sister, Jadyn Schiffner; uncle and aunts, Troy Schiffner, Jackie (Lee Schoo) Roiger, Renee (James) Linn, Nikki (Ken Quilt) Zoschke; cousins, Starla, Rosemary, Pearl, Aurora, Violet, Jonathan, Brandon, Jesse; other relatives and countless friends.
Jacob is preceded in death by his grandmas, Nancy Zoschke, Pat Schiffner; grandpa, Richard “Gyke” Schiffner and uncle, Todd Schiffner.Print Obituary & Condolences
