Looking up some old friends late at night seeing how their lives are going and I stumbled across this... From working at eTelecare to me getting you a job at Teletracker and driving you to work everyday and the stupid things we used to talk and joke about, to going out late at night and having ridiculous fun. I'm going to miss you dude. I'm sad you left us so young, Rest In Peace Jacob.

Jake, you were a brother to me and I have so many great memories of the times we shared. Thanks for being a best friend and treating me like family. It hurts to know that I'm never gonna see you again on this earth, but I know you'll be watching over us from heaven. I know you're happy with the turnout at your service. It was beautiful. You touched a lot of people's lives and created some great bonds and memories. I'm so glad that we got to talk while you were in the hospital and tell each other we loved each other, although I hated seeing you hurting. Jase and Jianna got to see you one last time as well. Jianna told me yesterday, "Daddy I miss Jake, but he's in the sky now." I told her "Yes he is princess, and he'll be watching over us." It hurts to see your family go through this, they love you so much. I will forever stay in contact with them and Jianna calls your mom her "na na" now. You're one of a kind and there will never be another like you.Until we meet again my friend...

Jacob, some of the greatest memories from high school involve you. Goofing around in baseball was always a blast. I remember toward the end of our season in 1995 and you were closing in on the record for most stolen bases in a season and you kept telling me to "singles Marty, not doubles." Truthfully, a few of those singles could have been doubles but I wanted you to get that record brother. In the years since, I saw you grow up and always enjoyed our time together at ASU Tailgates. Glad the Devils beat the Rats to send you up with a wide smile. I hope Coach Leuck is throwing soft toss to you up there in the skies above. We'll miss you Jacob. Be an Angel for all of us!

Saucedo Family-Sorry for your loss. Jacob was a great person and he will forever be remembered for all the memories he created with all of us during our middle and high school years! He is now an angel and will be looking after all of you. The angels are always near to those who are grieving, to whisper to them that their loved ones are safe in the hand of God. ~Rosie; Laveen, AZ

We had our ups and downs during our time together, from the crazy endless first night we met, to our spontaneous trip to Laughlin, the surprise trip to San Diego, and the special spot overlooking the city. It's these times that I hold on to. Even after we went our separate ways, you still managed to be a part of my life. You were so passionate, so loving and so loyal, but also so INCREDIBLY persistent lol and you refused to let me go and remained in my life for the past 10 or more years by calling me on special days (boy you had such a good memory) or messaging me just to say hi or especially whenever ASU played my parents alma mater (UofO). I remember the time we were both at the ASU/Ducks game and I could see you, but you couldn't see me. I can picture you now on the phone looking up into the stands searching the crowd for me and we were both just laughing. I know I would tease and say "when are you going to get married and leave me alone," but I know we both knew we enjoyed these occasional calls/msgs to catch up. It hurts my heart that your life was cut too short and I never saw that day. I know you would have made an amazing husband to the right woman and an UNBELIEVABLE father. My deepest sympathy to your family and friends. May you rest in peace my friend. With love. "My Love"
Posted by Shan Cárdenas on 21st February 2014
Jacob, one of my favorite memories of you was during high school. I loved that we always had so much to talk about and even better that you were willing to stay up until 3am chatting (laughing) on the phone with me while we simultaneously watched soap operas. I love your persistence and how complimentary you always are. Wish I could have given you a proper good bye. Go Devils! Love, Shan XOXO

Jake ~ When I first met my husband he was full of crazy, funny, outrageous stories from his past and so many of them had you in them. Although, I wasnt too fond of the story of when you two and some very lucky lady went " skieing" with you two ;) ;) although its a bit disgusting, I couldnt help but laugh. So when I finally met you, I was so happy to put a face to the name I heard so much of. Then after hanging around you and getting to know you I quickly knew why you were one of my husbands best friends. Luckly, by this time though you 2 were both tied down, so it was nice to be able to be there and watch the dynamic of your & Richards friendship change to a more grown up one. That's when I got to know the real Jake, who was a funny, loving human being, who shared our love of foot ball and most importantly was always AMAZING to our son, Richie IV!! We all had some great times together going out & playing poker at our house! You where there to share some of the most important times of my husbands and my life.....the first year of our sons life, Richies 1st birthday, that you drove so far to be there & Oh we cant forget watching the Cardinals in the Super Bowl....Man they were so close! We all were on such a high cause we thought they were going to for sure win. So when that didnt happen we were all sitting there silent for a loooong time. That was when I truely realized your love for football. We were all sad but you definitely took the cake when you shed some serious tears! That just shows how deeply you love when you love! I am so happy to share some of the best memories my husband & I have had, with you! I am so happy that we got to see you in the hospital & although things were not the best at that time. We know you heard everything we said and we meant it! You will always hold a special place in our hearts and will be missed beyond words! You truly were one of a kind!! We LOVE you Jake, always and forever!! xoxo

Sal say dosia. We were crazy together bro. I remember the mother daughter, and I never got to get you back for the incense incident. God I can't believe your gone man. I never thought shadows could catch up to us this quick. Scope out the spots for us and when I get there it will be on again. Your a true friend, I love you as my brother and I am going to miss you dearly. Oh and by the way, shake any demons off me...

"Jake you always had a way of making me laugh. No matter what was wrong you'd always listen. I miss you already my friend! Until we meet again. Love you

It's been a long time since I've seen Jake... Several years I'm sure but as anyone who knew him, he was not the type of guy you can forget. Always a super cool guy that made me laugh hysterically... and often. I was so sad to hear of his passing but sure he's in a better place. I will always remember Jake Saucedo and the joy he brought to my life! My sincerest condolences to the Saucedo Family during this difficult time.
Posted by Aaron Fugit on 18th February 2014
Pop warner days at Tempe high and running into you and your crew at Frank Kush field you were always full of life and spreading positive energy. RIP Jake
Posted by Isaac Saucedo on 18th February 2014
You may be gone but never forgotten, I miss you so much and think about you everyday. The only way I get through each day is I know that you are watching over my girls every second and I know I can sleep knowing that. I love you Jake ---E
Posted by Christi Saucedo on 18th February 2014
Some people are lucky enough to have a brother growing up. I was lucky enough to marry your brother, because you became my brother. Not just because we shared a last name; we shared much more than that. We always wanted the best for each other and had each others backs. I loved the way you loved my girls. Your heart became even bigger the day they were born. I want you to know I will make your brother happy, and keep Tess and Taylor safe. We will talk about you in the moon and stars everyday, Jake. We'll take care of your mama, too. Please watch over them and be their guardian angel.
Posted by TiMoteo Araiza on 18th February 2014
You made me a friend of yours without knowing much about me. You just loved to have fun and joke about anything. I'll keep you in my heart Bro because you freely accepted me. I'll remember you and you will not be forgotten in my life time. Thanks for being you!

Rest in Paradise Jacob. I’m sad to hear you are gone but I know you are in a better place and continuing to make people smile and laugh. Until we meet again, I have great memories of you!! I always admired Tanya for having little brothers.. I used to think it was so funny when I would hang out at your mom’s house when Tanya and I were young teenagers and you and Isaac wouldn’t leave us alone, knocking on Tanya’s door then running away lol, being annoying little brothers!! hahaha! Tanya would get so mad then tell your mom to tell you guys to leave us alone! LOL! I remember it like it was yesterday! Thank you for touching my life during your time on earth.. You will forever be in my heart!
Posted by Betty May on 18th February 2014
Dear Jacob, Thank you for making me smile and laugh for the last few years. I always enjoyed your ASU posts and of course your amazing Chipotle recipe...I'm sorry you have left us. You will always be remembered and thought of often. Rest in peace friend!!
Posted by Tom Culver on 18th February 2014
Oh man, lots of memories dating back to elementary school, but the one that always made me laugh was when Rich,Jeff,You and myself were in Jeff's car and we kept playing that Satanic whiteboy music with hidden meanings......of course it was White Zombie and you mellowed out when we promised it was not at all evil,lol... I am grateful I got to see you my last time in AZ talking crap on the huskies who I don't even like, but I guess to the world's biggest ASU fan I was guilty of living in a state that didn't house the Sun Devil's. You were always bigger than life, and always will be. Until next time Jake!

How time has passed since we crossed paths Jake. You have touched so many of our lives and created so many memories. Memories are never forgotten and you my friend will never be forgotten. Until we cross paths again Jake, I thank you!
Posted by Melissa Buxton on 18th February 2014
Though we never met, I will say that I'm an ASU fan due to the passion you, your father, your stepmom and other family members clearly have for your sundevils. Rest in peace and may your loved ones cherish the many, many memories they have of you....forever.
