Jacob Michael Tighe, 27 was born January 29, 1985 and enjoyed his life to the fullest until January 1, 2013.
Jacob was a soft and loving soul who fought the muscular dystrophy he was born with until his passing. He recruited so many friends along the way nurses and doctors from the A I Dupont staff to his VA nurses who were more like extended family. Although his traveling was slow he called so many of his friends from across the eastern shore on a regular basis. He always wished his friends and family well offering support and kind words with every breath he took. He was an angel put on this earth to remind all of us how kindness and love are always the foundation of what humanity should be. He made friends wherever he went from North Carolina to his friends and Easter Seals and Dover Downs. He was also a member of Walter L. Fox Post # 2 in Dover.
