Jacob Borgstrom

July 30, 2003 — June 15, 2023

              On Thursday June 15, 2023, Jacob Lawrence Borgstrom was called home to God unexpectedly. Funeral services will be on June 27th at 11:00am at Lord of Life Lutheran Church in Baxter. Visitation will be June 26th from 4pm-7pm and one hour before the service. Internment at Evergreen Memorial Gardens following.

               Jacob was born on July 30, 2003 to Brandon and Amy (Krushe) Borgstrom. He resided in Pillager, MN and attended Brainerd/Baxter schools. He graduated from Brainerd High School class of 2022 and then Central Lakes College with a Diesel Technichan A.S. along with his Commercial Driver’s License in 2023. He worked as an intern at Zeigler Caterpillar and had recently accepted a full-time position there. He had also been employed at Sunup Ranch, Hines Masonry and Circle S Ranch.

               His true calling was music, but he also was involved in many organizations throughout his 19 years. Proud member of Warrior Football, Brainerd FFA, CLC trap team, Forestview High Altitude Balloon Club, Cub Scouts, Brainerd Snodeos, K kids, 4H Shooting Sports and Horse, Western Minnesota Steam Threshers Reunion (Rollag), Midwest Country Music Organization artist and song writer. He was baptized and confirmed and was a member of Lord of Life Lutheran Church. He was proud of his pickup truck, tractors, horses, and he loved to sing his heart out at every campfire. In his FFA career he had the honor to be a Brainerd FFA Sentinel Officer and competed with his singing talent on a regional, state and national level. His passion for music allowed him to perform at Sidetrack, Mid Summer Music Fest and he was slated to perform at LAKES JAM. It seemed he made deep connections with all whom he came into contact with. Jacob always said, “I feel closest to God on a tractor”.
