Jacob Anthony Crowell, 28, of East Providence, died after battling long term illnesses. He was born on March 28, 1990 in Pawtucket, RI.
He is a 2008 graduate of East Providence High School where he was student council president and captain of the football team. In 2013 he graduated from The University of Rhode Island and was currently working as the Camp Director of Camp Grosvenor in Saunderstown, RI.

Jake’s focus was life and not his illnesses. He will be remembered for his wit, loyalty, and selflessness to his family, friends, and the kids he worked with each day. Jake found ways to find the joy in every moment of his life. He knew how precious they were-like taking the time to feel the music of the Grateful Dead with a glass of Jameson in his hand.

Jake is survived by his loving parents, Daniel and Trina Crowell (Blackmon) of East Providence. His sister, Rebekah Vieira, and her husband, Nuno, of Pawtucket, his brother, Derek Obert, and his wife and son, Jessalyn and Damien, of Brockton. Jake also leaves behind his faithful companion, his dog, Aoife.

Jake is at peace and in the loving hands of his late father, Dale.
