Jobe was a passionate man, with many hobbies. In his free time would play video games, put together models, build legos, and loved to talk cars with you as much as he loved to work on them. He was a history buff who enjoyed World War documentaries and movies and absolutely loved Star Wars.
Jobe was an inspiration to many. His smile was contagious. He was such a selfless man; he was compassionate and caring for others. He never put himself first. If you had the pleasure of meeting him you wouldn’t have known he was sick. He fought cancer for 3 years, he faced everyday head on with a smile on his face. He may have had cancer but cancer never had him. He may have passed away, but he beat cancer in every way that you possibly could. He never let his diagnosis hold him back. He inspired so many with his courageous spirit and strength.
