“Jacob Sportsman Memorial Plaza” @ Veterans Village.
SHARE/Veterans Village is proud to announce the “Jacob Sportsman Memorial Plaza” @ Veterans Village.
We are working in collaboration with Ms. Joyce Sportsman to Commemorate and celebrate the life of Jacob and his service to our country. This memorial will serve as a new landmark in Downtown Las Vegas honoring the men and women who have given their lives and those who have served to protect the freedom that we all enjoy as Americans.
DCFA JACOB SPORTSMAN U.S. Navy Jacob K. Sportsman, 22, of Las Vegas, left his body behind Nov. 26, 2012. Jake’s life, though brief, touched many others. He was a multifaceted character. He was a dedicated son, loyal brother and exceptional friend. He lived as he died, on the edge as he was an all or nothing kind of guy. He had many passions, all of them honorable, aimed at helping people and making the world a better place. He traveled the world as a firefighter in the U.S. Navy. We will remember him as a young revolutionary and one bad “Honey Badger.” He lives on in the hearts and memories of his parents, Johnny and Joyce Sportsman; brothers, Joshua and Justice; little sisters, Anjolee and Alysha; along with grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and countless friends.
