Jacob better known as “Jac” was born in Oklahoma City to Michael Parsons and Carmen Bailey on May 3rd, 1981 and received his precious angel wings at the age of 39 on July 22, 2020. Jac was always one that knew how to make an entrance right from the start as he decided to enter the world backwards. Jac came into the world with his twin brother Jeffery, who arrived at 3:04 a.m. followed by Jac at 3:17 a.m. Those 13 minutes was the longest time they spent apart from each other until they became teenagers and even that didn’t keep them apart for very long. Jac was greeted at home by his big brother Chad, who at first wasn’t happy with their arrival at all. However, those feelings quickly changed and the three of them became the 3 Musketeers. “One for all and all of one.”

Jac loved playing baseball from the age of 5 into adulthood. He played his Little League career with the South Side Bears coached by his dad, Mickey and Grandpa “Pops”. He then went on to play in a men’s softball league with his brothers and friends. His favorite thing was playing in the all-night softball tournaments and tailgating with his friends in between games. When he wasn’t playing sports, Jac was a very loyal fan of the Chicago Cubs since he was a child. He was crazy with excitement when the Cubs won the World Series in 2016. He always said that the Cubs winning was a memory for a lifetime!!
In Jac’s teenage years his mom moved with the boys to Texas. There, he gained his stepdad, David Bailey, who loved him as his own and was soon joined by a new baby brother, Jason. Jac loved Jason with all his heart and spent countless hours playing with him. Their favorite thing to do was go for walks where Jac would push Jason in his “Flintstone Car”.
On July 12, 2002 Jac was blessed with the birth of his first child, a son, Trenton Don Parsons. He was so excited when Trenton was born that he requested the nurses to ring the Angel Chimes as many times as they could. Jac loved playing cars with him on the floor and taking him to Chuck-E-Cheese to jump in the ball pit and play Skee ball. Then on November 14, 2006 Jac was blessed with his second child, a precious baby girl, Kelsey Dawn Parsons. Kelsey quickly became and always will be daddy’s little princess. She had her daddy wrapped around her little finger at first sight. Jac loved both Trenton and Kelsey with all his heart. Jac was also blessed with 5 nieces, 8 nephews, and 1 great nephew that he loved. He loved when his mom would call and tell him all about their events especially if it was sports related.
Jac was always willing to help out anyone in need and never expected anything in return. We are devasted knowing Jac is no longer with us, but we know that he is no longer suffering and in a better place. His memory will live on through the stories we all share. Please talk about him often. We will miss his smile, his quick wit, and his adventurous spirit, but we will never forget him.
Thank you to everyone for your outreach and support. Our family is grateful for the amount of love and care we’ve been shown.
