On October 3, 2021, a beautiful autumn day at Fall Creek, Mistee Dawn Jacobson, 38 and Trapper Daniel Jacobson, 37, passed away.
Trapper and Mistee were inseparable. They were married on June 16, 2018, but began dating years before that. Trapper inherited an instant family the minute he met Mistee and her two children Orion and Mercee, who were age three and one at the time. He loved them with all of his heart and became "Trappy" to both of them. Trapper's family will tell you that Mistee and the kids completed him and filled a hole that even he didn't know was empty until they met. Mistee relied on his strength, his sense of humor and his ability to do anything he put his mind to; he was her rock and she would have followed him anywhere.
Trapper and Mistee valued family above all else. Trapper became a son, brother, uncle and friend to Mistee's family; and Mistee a daughter, sister, friend, and aunt to his. They were the life of any party and loved planning get togethers for their families and friends. Trapper loved hunting, fishing and riding his snow machine, while Mistee enjoyed crafting and decorating their home for every season and occasion imaginable. They both loved Boise State football and spending time outdoors camping, boating and rzr riding, all of which was rarely done without seeing them with a White Claw in their hands and a smile on their faces.
Mistee was born on September 15, 1983, in Rexburg, Idaho. She grew up in Rigby and obtained her degree from Boise State University. Mistee worked as a Senior Instructional Designer within the Department of Homeland Security. She is survived by her loving parents, Ross and Toni Ellis; son, Orion Hansen; daughter Mercee Hansen; siblings, their significant others and kids: Stefanie and Ryan Rothermel, Kacey, Jason, Lyndee and Karsten Schreier, Chance Ellis and Shaylie Rigolout; grandparents Boyd and Jean Schwieder and Irene and Donald Ellis. She was preceded in death by her uncle, Derrald Schwieder.
Trapper was born on April 20, 1984, in Rexburg. He grew up and attended schools in Ucon and graduated from Bonneville High School. He worked for Depacto Concrete. Trapper is survived by his loving parents, Bryan and Lori Jacobson, and Richard Anderson, siblings, their significant others and nieces and nephews who he adored: Ashlie, Mathew, Lexi, Mason and Austin Smith; Kristen Jacobson and Emma Jacobson; Jordan, Brandon Luce, Jyler Hainsworth and Lumen Luce; uncles and aunts Dan and Jackie Cobbley and family; Jeremy and Michelle Spencer and family; grandparents Faye Whitmore, Terry and Karen Cobbley; great grandmother Leah Doring.
He was preceded in death by his grandfather, Dean Berdette Jacobson, grandmother, Violet Joan Jacobson, great grandfather, Max Cobbley, and great grandmother, Pearl Lim.
Their service will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Monday, October 11, 2021, at Wood Funeral Home East Side (963 Ammon). The family will visit with friends and family from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. on Sunday, October 10, 2021, and Monday from 1:00 to 1:45 p.m. prior to the service. Burial will be held in the Iona Cemetery.
The family is confident that Mistee and Trapper would say, “In lieu of flowers, please send White Claw.” They will be deeply missed by all.
