Obituary for Paul T. Jacob

PEORIA – Paul T. Jacob, 49, of Peoria passed away on Tuesday, October 9, 2018.

Paul was born on July 18, 1969 in Peoria, IL to Walter F. and Margaret (Barry) Jacob. He married Amanda (Brook) Jacob on March 4, 2000.

He is survived by his wife, Amanda Jacob and three children, Daniel, Kayla and Jacob Murphy; his mother, Margaret (Barry) Jacob; brother George (Jeannine) Jacob; sister Margaret “Meg” Jacob, and sister-in-law Marit Jacob. He is also survived by nieces and nephews: Alexandra, George, Walter “Jake,” Katherine, Thomas, Bennett, Connor & Lillian Brook.

He was preceded in death by his brother, Walter. F. Jacob and his father, Walter F. “Budd” Jacob III.

Paul began his career in 1987 working for his dad at Brewers Distributing Co. as a route salesman. He learned every aspect of the beer business by working his way up from route sales to President alongside his father, Budd; mother, Margie; brother, George and sister, Meg. Paul held true to his father’s motto, “Making Friends is Our Business” providing the highest level of customer service and building relationships in the Peoria community and beyond. Paul was well known for his humble and enthusiastic nature.

Paul earned his Executive Master of Business Administration at Bradley University. He was passionate about marketing and leadership and used his vast experience to lead Brewers Distributing Co. as President beginning in 2010 to the company’s milestone 85th year in business in 2018. Paul was committed to making a difference in our local communities through volunteerism and other charitable efforts.

Paul allocated resources towards education, economic development, disaster relief, first responders, and military forces. Under Paul’s leadership, Brewers hosted fundraisers, promoted volunteerism and donations through local community organizations. He was awarded the 2013 HIHA Best in Midwest Community Service Award and the 2014 AAHFM Garrett Humanitarian Award. Paul touched the hearts of many that were affected by the EF-2 and EF-4 Tornados on November 17, 2013. Paul swiftly acted by sending truckloads of bottled water to Washington, IL. Paul opened Brewers as a designated Red Cross donation drop off site to help gather and distribute donations of food, clothing, water and necessities for those in need.

A Funeral Mass will be held at 10:30 AM on Saturday, October 13, 2018 at Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church in Morton.
