    I worked with Norman over 35 years ago when he was at Channel Home Centers. He was a very kind and caring person. I remember one time my mom was very ill and he sent me home with a box of candy and a stuffed dog for her! It was such a “Norman” thing to do. Although I have not seen him in many many years, I was heart broken to hear of his passing. My condolences to his entire family.

    Norm was my friend and partner on DBCS #18 at the Ft. Myers P & DC for about ten years. I’m devastated that he didn’t get to enjoy a long retirement. My thoughts are with his family.

    Unfortunately I just saw this! I would have very much liked to pay my respects to the family. I was very fond of Norm having been from Long Island, and also born in Brooklyn, we had a lot in common. Norm always had a smile, and never failed to say”Hey Long Island “. Every time he saw me. He will always be remembered at the Fort Myers P&DC! May he rest in peace

    Norm was one of the best co- workers anyone could ask for. We had many conversations over the years covering a variety of topics and I could always get a laugh out of him. R.I.P. friend.

    I worked with Norm at the postal P&DC. He always had a smile and was a friend to everyone. He always said Hi Baltimore when he saw me even though I’m more from the D.C. area…it was his way of remembering I was from MD. He was such a nice guy. My condolences to his family and friends. He had a huge heart.

    Craig has known “Jake” since 1966 I have known him since 1967 when we were in the same bookkeeping class & I would help him with his homework:) He was our best man when we got married in 1971. What a privilege to have remain friends all these years. We will always remember him,and love him. Rest in peace.

    I truly enjoyed working around Norm. Being in maintenance we didn’t work machines together but did get to know him. Wonderful man. May God bless him and comfort his family.

  16. Armida Nicely Dec 30, 2019 at 3:53 pm

    When I transferred from Ohio to the Ft Myers P&DC, Norm was always so friendly and made me feel welcome to my new surroundings. Always a smile and willing to help and answer questions. Rest in peace, Norm.

    I worked with Norm on Tour 1 for more than 20 years. He was a great guy, and I wish he had more time to enjoy his retirement. My condolences to the family. We grieve with you.

  19. Scott Cooper Dec 30, 2019 at 5:46 pm

    So sorry to hear about Norm. Always a great guy to work with and pleasant to talk to.

  20. Lynne Cram Dec 30, 2019 at 6:14 pm

    I am so saddened to hear of Norm’s passing. I also spent around 10 years working on the same machine with him. He was such a hard worker, he never complained about anything (unless he got mandatory overtime) and who doesn’t complain about that! He’d greet me by saying, “Hey, Rock and Roll!” Or he’d sing like Mick Jagger, 🎵 “I know. It’s only rock and roll, but Lynne likes it.”🎸
    I am glad he had at least a couple of years to enjoy his retirement, He deserved a lot more time than he got.
    My condolences to his whole family.

  21. Patricia Pendarvis Dec 30, 2019 at 6:19 pm

    I worked with Norm at the post office. He was just the nicest, sweetest guy. Always had a smile and a hello. I’m so sorry that he didn’t get to enjoy a long retirement. My condolences to his family.

  23. Jamie Robertson Dec 30, 2019 at 10:25 pm

    So sorry to hear of the untimely passing of Norm. Me, My husband and my mother all worked with Norm at the Fort Myers P&DC and were very fond of him. He always put a smile on our faces. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Norm’s family during this difficult time. We are sorry we did not get to pay our respects as we did not find out of Norm’s passing until the day after the service. We also will be forever grateful for Norm’s service with the military and helping to protect our country (us) and keep us all free and safe! With deepest sympathy,
    Jamie & Andrew Robertson & Deborah O’Neill

    Norm Jacobsen. He was a special guy. Great personality,always nice. I never really heard him say anything bad about anyone. He was a giver too. He gave me a giftcard for Christmas once and I’ve seen his generosity with others countless times. I worked with Norm for over twenty years. R.I.P. Norm.
