Obituary of Jaye Rosalie Jacobson

May 11, 1949 – Edmonton, Alberta

March 27, 2024 – Calgary, Alberta


It is with a heavy heart that we announce the peaceful passing of Jaye Jacobson. We sadly lost her at South Health Campus, Calgary, AB, on Wednesday, March 27, 2024, at the age of 74 years. She was surrounded by the love of her family.


Jaye battled a roller coaster of health conditions over the past several years and rebounded with strength, grace, determination, wit, humour, and a positive outlook, which was a small snapshot of Jaye’s beautiful character and soul. Those who knew her loved her for her kindness, generosity, and big heart, which despite her determination eventually gave out on her and she is now at peace. Not only was she the ultimate mom to her own two daughters, but was a mom to many, and always had an open door with open arms.


Jaye was predeceased by her mom and dad, Velma and Vionell Jacobson; and her partner Stan Livingston. She is survived by her two daughters, Nici (Terry, Baylee, Tanner) and Shawna (Darrin, Coy, Rori); her brothers, Jack (Fran, Jared, Jackie) and Walter (Dianne, Kristen), sister Jody (Gary, Brett, Colton), and honourary children, Darryl Rempel, and Jason Roblin.
