Age 40, in Lafayette, CO formerly of Moon Township. Beloved son of Elizabeth (Moss) Nicholson and the late Richard Nicholson; dear brother of R. Aaron, Kate and Jesse-Burton Nicholson. Uncle of R. Jarod Nicholson; nephew of Michael and Carol (Cost) Moss, Alice (Clark) and Jerry Donohoe, Carl, Tom (Diane), Claire and Joan Nicholson of Boise, ID and many cousins.

Jacob was an intelligent young man, gifted in art and music. He pursued learning and knowledge for its own sake and always followed his own path. Though a man of few words, he had a quick wit that kept us laughing. He graduated from the Art Institute of Pgh, where he studied animation, and from the University of Washington with degrees in computer science and math. He worked a number of years animating computer games in Seattle for Valve Corp. He is remembered for his sense of humor, his curiosity, and the selflessness with which he cared for his father prior to his father's death in 2006. Oh Jake, we will miss you.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Jacob's memory to Hungry for Music ( or The Friends of the Lafayette Public Library Foundation (ATTN: Sue Middleton, memorial gifts in honor of Jacob Nicholson, 775 W Baseline Rd., Lafayette CO 80026)
