Carol Jacobson memorial scheduled for Sunday

Craig Daily Press Staff Report
Carol Jacobson

A memorial service for resident Carol Jacobson is planned for 2 p.m. Sunday at the Wyman Museum, 94350 U.S. Highway 40.

The service is open to the public.

The service will take place outside and is expected to be about an hour. Food will be served afterward.

Jacobson was an active community member in a variety of organizations, such as Preserving the Last Frontier, Page Turners book club, Craig Centennial Committee the Farmer’s Market and Downtown Business Association.

In addition to those activities, she owned Downtown Books, taught classes at Colorado Northwestern Community College and was helping at least two local residents publish books.

She died Wednesday after an accident on the Green River in Dinosaur National Monument. Her raft overturned in Triplet Falls. She was 54.

Members of her party found her unresponsive after they brought her out of the water.

They conducted CPR for about an hour before a commercial group notified the National Park Service by satellite phone and assisted with transporting Jacobson to Echo Park, where an ambulance was waiting to transport her.

The Park Service has not determined a cause of death and will not have more information for a few weeks.
