    Danny was amazing friend and co-worker. He was always full of energy and enthusiasm. My favorite attribute was his fishing skills and “fish tales”. The best of those, always included his children. Danny was also fearless when it came to tree trimming. He felled several for me as well as my neighbors which allowed me to record some amazing videos of Danny in his comfort zone 60 feet off the ground with his cleats firmly planted. Full of confidence, skill and ability. He will be missed and leaves behind a void that will never be filled. However, the joy, love, memories and great storied will live on forever. God Speed my Friend! Catch another Big’n!
    Your Friend,

    To the Family of Danny Jocobi,
    I met Danny 18 years ago at work (Gulfstream) I gave him the nick name Jacobi Obi Canobi #1. We would laugh about that all the time. I finally bought my 2020 Nissan Rogue because he talked me into overcoming my fears of driving again from my accident I had in 2019. He was a great friend to me at all times and I will truly miss him!! Always remember his smile,always! Rest on my friend! I will see you again one day! Rest on Peace!!
