Jacob Miles “Jake” Cassell, age 42 of Columbus, Texas passed away on Jan. 19, 2024 in Columbus, Texas.

He was born on Jan. 19, 1982 to Leslie Cassell and Deborah (Hinton) Cassell in Columbus, Texas. He went to Columbus High School and attended the Frelsburg Baptist Church.

Jacob was a loyal, friendly, softhearted person who would help anyone with anything. He was an avid outdoorsman who enjoyed hunting and fishing. He was a sharpshooter with a rifle. Jake was an enthusiastic sports fan with a lifelong love/frustration relationship with the Texans but would really watch any team at any level of football. You could always find him cheering on all the major Houston teams.

In his down time, Jake found joy as a domino player, finding companionship and laughter in every match.

His true happiness however, blossomed in the company of loved ones, creating cherished memories during moments spent together at the river and on the lake.

Jacob is survived by his parents, Leslie and Deborah Cassell; grandmother JoNell Hinton; daughter Chastity Ring; son Peyton Cassell; sisters Jennifer Zoll and husband Nicholas and Candice Mahlmann and husband Michael; nephews Thomas Zoll, Lukas, Ethan and Mason Mahlmann; and niece Natalie Zoll.

He was preceded in death by grandparents, Elbert Cassell, Sr., Shirley Cassell and M.F. Hinton.

There will be a Celebration of Life for Jacob in Frelsburg at the Baptist Church in the weeks to come.
