Everyone is so sad & everyone misses Jacob so so much. It is still so very hard to believe that this has happened and that he really is gone from our lives. Until we meet again, Jacob know how much you are missed & loved by so many.

There is no understanding something like this this side of heaven. The thought occurs to me that God wanted a really good one back. He had a wonderful warm presence that was charming and calming. He lit up the office when he was there. He was the love focus of the family and very unassuming.

Everyone who got to meet him knew what a great a sweet guy he truly was. It's still hard to believe that a great young man with some much promise isn't here anymore. But God wanted him for a greater purpose and he is well and safe there. Someday we'll all get to see him again. We miss you so much everyday buddy. Until then, Jacob~ Sat, 25 Apr 2009 11:31:35 -0700 Eric on April 9, 2009 http://projects.latimes.com/metrolink-crash/name/jacob-hefter/#c13470 http://projects.latimes.com/metrolink-crash/name/jacob-hefter/#c13470 I'm SO sorry :( Thu, 09 Apr 2009 08:05:24 -0700 reyes on April 7, 2009 http://projects.latimes.com/metrolink-crash/name/jacob-hefter/#c13430 http://projects.latimes.com/metrolink-crash/name/jacob-hefter/#c13430 sorry about what happen to you your in gods hands rIght now R.I.P Tue, 07 Apr 2009 08:58:51 -0700 Michael Barrientos on March 28, 2009 http://projects.latimes.com/metrolink-crash/name/jacob-hefter/#c13169 http://projects.latimes.com/metrolink-crash/name/jacob-hefter/#c13169 Well jake .... i really really miss you man you were my best friend and the one person i trusted. i miss telling you my events of the day and how much i messed things up to hear you say dog its ok lets just get in a session of guitar hero and hit up the ping pong and then we will talk.

His family & Stephanie are suffering so badly. Its just so unfair that this young promising young man is gone forever. I just hope that some day, we all will get the answer as to why he was taken from us, when he had so much to offer? All I can say to the Hefter family & to Stephanie is to take one day at a time & know that Jacob is watching over each and every one of you, & that he would hate to see all of you so sad all of the time. May God bless all of you.

Let's make sure that we support them in what ever they do.! Angela you have raised wonderful sons I only hope I can say that someday about my boys. Love them and support them, no matter what they do in there life. Just as a MOM!!!!! I don't have the answers, wish I did. I wish you happines and peace someday. I hate the phrase he's in a better place what about the ones he left behind, he had a wonderful future!! Don"t forget the sons that are here by your side? They need you right now Sat, 29 Nov 2008 05:37:51 -0800 Allyson on November 20, 2008 http://projects.latimes.com/metrolink-crash/name/jacob-hefter/#c9458 http://projects.latimes.com/metrolink-crash/name/jacob-hefter/#c9458 To the Hefter family and Stephanie. i still to this day can not accept the truth to this tragedy. stephanie i give you the most props ever for being able to keep looking forward. myself, having a boyfriend of over 2 years, would not know what to do if something this horrible would hit my life. it is horrible that anyone would have to live such a short life, but atleast we know jacob was able to fall in love, and know the feeling of always having someone. one of the most important things in life. Jacob blessed and was envied by many, and will forever be. my love and respect goes out to both the Hefter and Guitierez families. may god keep you all strong. and keep all your heads high, so jacob may see his beautiful family and loved ones faces.

We all miss Jacob so much, but I'm sure his family & Stephanie miss him more than any of us will ever know, their lives will NEVER be the same again.

May God continue to comfort all of you during this holiday season without your son, brother and boyfriend. I did not know Jacob personally, (but my daughter knew him & Stephanie) but the tears won't stop whenever I think about this tragedy and the loss his family and girlfriend are left to deal with. My heart goes out to all of you that did know him for I know your tears must be a million more than mine. I just wanted all of you to know that none of you have been forgotten in prayers and that Jacob will not be forgotten ever by many. (Even by those who did not personally know him like myself) I look forward to the day that I can see your reunion with him in the heavens!

I know it can't be easy on them right now. I can't imagine the pain they are feeling let's make sure they feel it is okay to go on with there life and plans they had for the future. I think that Jacob would have wanted it that way. It does not mean they are not going to be sad but let's honor him and make him proud. Jared and Jordan need you more then ever.

There are no words to express my deep sorrow for all of you. Jacob is in a good place with his maker now, it's all of you that my tears are for. Please stay strong & know that you are all in my thoughts & in my prayers. June, Lancaster, Pa. Fri, 03 Oct 2008 11:03:47 -0700
