Jacob was born January 23, 1997 in Wausau, the son of Paul and Heidi (Brehm) Schilling. He attended Edgar Elementary School and was in his freshman year at Edgar High School. His high school activities included being a member of FBLA and FFA, participating in baseball and basketball, and was involved in the youth wrestling club. Sun Drop soda, plain M and M’s and gummy bears were never far away from Jacob, these were his favorites. Jacob was very content to just hang out with all his buddies, perhaps just sittin’ around the campfire. His hobbies included snowmobiling and four-wheeling but probably his greatest passion was hunting. Whether it was going out West to hunt, hunting deer around here or turkey hunting with his uncles, it didn’t matter, Jacob loved all of it. He was a member of St. John’s Catholic Church in Edgar.
He is lovingly survived by his parents, Paul and Heidi Schilling of Edgar; one sister Taylor; two brothers Seth and Justin all of Edgar, his maternal grandmother Polly Brehm of Edgar, his paternal grandparents Richard and Diann Schilling of Edgar and his maternal great grandmother Josie Sommer of Edgar. Jacob is further survived by his aunts and uncles and cousins: Doug and Barb Brehm and their children Simon and Everett; Mark and Debbie Schilling and their children Kyle and Katie; Dave and Jenny Schilling and their children Mackenzie and Morgan; Danny and Michelle Murkowski; Ryan and Lisa Schilling and their children Tara and Cole along with many other relatives, classmates and friends.
Jacob was preceded in death by maternal grandfather Richard Brehm.
A memorial will be established in Jacob’s memory at a later date.
