Princeton student Lindsay Jacob dies

Lindsay Sara Jacob, a member of Princeton's class of 2008, died Friday, June 15, of cancer at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. She was 21.

Jacob, of Washington Crossing, Pa., was a comparative literature major and a member of the University's equestrian team.

Jacob was born in White Plains, N.Y., and also lived in Greenwich, Conn. She was a graduate of the Hun School of Princeton, where she was a recipient of the Donaldson Merit Scholarship, played varsity soccer and was selected by the Hun faculty to be the first-ever student speaker at the school's 2004 commencement ceremony.

She is survived by her parents Stuart and Laurie Jacob, her sister Jennifer Jacob and her grandparents Blanca Jacob, Sheila Engel and Michael Rosenblatt.

Funeral services were held Sunday, June 17. A memorial service is being planned for the fall in a collaborative effort between the University and the Hun School.

Plans are in development to start an academic scholarship in Jacob's name. All other memorial contributions can be made in her name for cancer research to Children's Hospital Foundation, P.O. Box 7790, Philadelphia, PA 19101.
