Jacob Lustig Obituary, Death – Jacob Lustig In Honor of the Memory Jacob, who was a great person and a loved son and brother, has been taken away from us, and we’re heartbroken. Jacob was a very religious man who questioned the rules and traditions of his time and loved spending time in the woods. Jacob and his family moved from Prague, Czech Republic, to Arlington, Virginia, when he was 11 years old. He was a dedicated ice hockey player from the time he was a young boy in Prague until he was well into his adult years. Jacob has a strong mathematical intuition and studied math at George Mason University, where he got a double major in both applied and theoretical mathematics and minors in economics and computer science.
He then graduated from the Honors College. During the summer, he worked as an intern at an Arab newspaper in Nazareth, Israel, and for two semesters, he went to Oxford University. Jacob was interested in languages, picked them up quickly, and liked how speaking another language could give him a new perspective. He was fluent in Czech, English, Hebrew, Arabic, and Russian. He even learned the alphabet for Armenian and Georgian. He was also a good accordionist and guitarist, but he really “played” the piano. He improvised and rearranged classic pieces like Bizet’s Carmen, Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker, and Mozart’s Rondo Alla Turca by shifting them between major and minor keys and changing their rhythms. Jacob loved animals in general, but his rabbit was his favorite. His caring nature gave him a deep love for nature, which led him to become a vegan, avoid doing things that could hurt animals or the environment and even pick up trash on his many trips.
He was always confused and puzzled, and he often spoke in riddles and liked games, puzzles, and mathematical conundrums. His favorite game was chess. Jacob had traveled the length of the United States to get to San Francisco. He was looking for wisdom. He wanted to see the conditions of the poor and less fortunate for himself because he cared about them. He was searching for the deeper meaning and purpose of life. He died peacefully in his sleep on October 16, 2020, from natural causes. Our family is shocked and saddened by Jacob’s death. He was our first child and the oldest of five wonderful kids. Jacob was a one-of-a-kind, remarkable, and smart person. At the time, she was only 26. Jacob’s parents, Josef and Ann Lustig, and his four siblings, Tess, Rachel, Rebecca, and Max, are still alive. On October 22, there was a private memorial service at the Cypress Lawn Funeral Home and Memorial Park in Colma, California.
