Jacob Andrew Riedman was born June 16, 1993 in Fargo, ND. Jacob was lovingly welcomed into heaven on May 3 by his great-grandparents James & Muriel Persons, August Skalicky, Les & Phyllis Riedman, and his dogs Cloey and Ranger.
In the short time Jake was here, he filled the world of those who loved him with joy. On the day he was born, the quote-a-day calendar page read "Some people make the world more special just by being in it", and this was so true of Jake. He was tender-hearted, compassionate, fun-loving, hilarious, and a delight to have around. His time on earth ended much too soon and he will be desperately missed.
Jacob leaves behind his parents Kasey & Jon Skalicky, grandparents Gary & Kathy Riedman and Mike & Helen Skalicky, great-grandparents Lois Hawbaker and Lloyd Nygaard, aunts & uncles Kim (Tom) Noah and family, Kari (Ivan) Clements and family, Josh Skalicky, and Adam Skalicky, dog Shaggey, and many family and friends.
Jacob is also survived by his fraternal family Brian, Bea, Gary Tait, and extended family.
