Corby John Jacobson, son of Robert & Glady (Beckstrand) Jacobson was born on January 5, 1958.

Corby continued his education at North Dakota State University, graduating with a Degree in Animal Science. While attending NDSU he met and married Janet Jones the mother of his children.
Corby dedicated his life to being a steward of the land and a shepherd to his cows, proudly alongside his father for nearly 40 years.
Corby coached Warwick High School Varsity boys basketball for several years, from there his love of sports continued, as he played amateur basketball in the local league for many years. Corby enjoyed attending his children’s sporting events as well as other local games and tournaments. In recent years he wouldn’t miss tuning into March Madness, Bison football, and any other sporting event that was on the air.
Corby was an avid outdoorsman, spending his free time taking his children on numerous fishing and camping trips across the upper Midwest. He instilled a love of nature into his children and grandchildren. Through his desire to continue learning, he took every opportunity to make each moment an educational experience for those around him. Living by his personal motto “adjust and adapt” along with his patience and knowledge everything improved when Corby was around.
