Carol Jacob


Mrs. Carol Ann Jacob, born on Oct. 5, 1947, in Staten Island, N.Y., passed away on Oct. 28, 2023.

Carol was predeceased by her parents, Michael and Magdalen Dalessio, and her brother, Michael Dalessio Jr.

Carol is survived by her husband, Charles (Chuck) Jacob, and her children: Michael Jacob and his wife, Cameron, Melissa Haymond and her husband, Robert, and James Jacob and his wife, Lauren. Her memory lives on through her five grandchildren: Jacob, Natalie, Sophia, Mallory, and Morgan.

In Carol’s early years, she split time between Staten Island and Dingmans Ferry, Pa. While on vacation in Florida, she met Chuck, and they married in 1970. The journey of their life together began in many beautiful places throughout Florida, where all their children were born. In the mid 1980s, they relocated to Williamsburg, before eventually settling on Chincoteague Island. Carol worked at the Charter Cable office for many years before retiring to care for her extended family.

She was also a devoted member of St. Andrew’s (the Apostle) Roman Catholic Church on Chincoteague Island. Her proudest achievement was undoubtedly raising her children and spoiling her grandchildren. Carol’s legacy is one of family, love, and unmeasured generosity, and she will be deeply missed by those fortunate enough to have shared in her life.

A funeral mass will be held at St. Andrew’s Catholic Church on Saturday, Dec. 2 at 11 a.m.,  with the family requesting donations be made in her honor to St. Andrew’s (the Apostle) Roman Catholic Church, Chincoteague Island, in lieu of flowers. Carol’s memory will continue to inspire those who knew her, and her warm and loving presence will always be remembered.

Services entrusted to Salyer Funeral Home, Inc. on Chincoteague Island. Condolences may be made online at
