~ An Unforgettable Man ~
Jacob was born April 13,1988 to Michael Ross and Jodie Lynn Caputo. He passed away unexpectedly January 7, 2023.
As a child, Jacob was fearless and loved to BMX bike with his cousins. When he wasn’t riding his bike, you could watch Jacob playing a variety of sports. Jacob was a tremendous athlete. He played football and wrestled for Cyprus High School. After high school he continued his love for sports as a little league football coach. Jacob also enjoyed playing softball and you could always find him on the field with his friends and family. Jacob thoroughly enjoyed camping, boating, fishing, paintballing, and snowboarding. He excelled at everything he put his heart and mind into.
In 2010, Jacob met Christina Ward in Twin Falls, Idaho. Together they welcomed a precious baby boy into the world, Christopher Michael Caputo. Born premature, Christopher fought for his life and Jacob never left his side. After two short weeks, Christopher passed away leaving both Jacob and Christina deeply heartbroken.
Four years later, their hearts and lives were filled with overwhelming love and happiness with the birth of their daughter, Allyson Denise Caputo. She was their rainbow baby and Jacob loved Allyson with every fiber of his being. He was the best Daddy and loved spending time with her. Allyson spent the summer at the softball field. She was Jacob’s #1 fan. The highlight of Jacob’s life were the 10 months he had with Allyson. Tragically, because of blatant daycare neglect, Allyson died at just 10 months old. It was Jacob who picked Allyson up from the daycare that day. It was in every way the most traumatic experience for Jacob. A part of Jacob died with Allyson that day and Jacob carried that grief with him every day after.
Jacob moved back to his hometown of Salt Lake City, Utah. Living in Utah gave Jacob the opportunity to spend time with family and work beside friends as a project manager for SCI. It was always nice to talk with Jacob, he made you feel heard and understood. As much as Jacob loved to tease and joke around, he was the first to be there for you. Jacob found times of peace riding his Indian Motorcycle. His favorite rides were alongside his dad and many friends.
Jacob will be deeply missed by his parents; Michael and Jodie Caputo, maternal grandparents; Irene and Eloy Aleman, paternal grandmother Anna Marie Caputo, his brothers; Joseph (Ashley), Jordan (Halsey), and sister Julie (Carolina). His nieces: Isabella, Talayah, Tailyn and Londyn, who refers to Jacob as her sweetheart, nephews: Izayah and Louie, who will miss playing with and being teased by their fun and loving “Uncle Poo Poo.” Jacob had close relationships with his aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends who will also miss him very much.
There is tremendous comfort to know that Jacob’s heartache is gone with the sweet reunion in heaven with his children, Christopher & Allyson, his nephew, Landon, and his paternal grandfather, Joe Caputo. We are certain that Jacob is at peace, finally having both of his babies in his loving arms.

I am so sorry your family is grieving for Jacob. I will miss him to. I knew Jacob from Henningsen in Twin Falls. I was the office Lady. We spent a lot of time talking. He was so kind and caring to me. He also came to see me a few months a go with Bryan Harshman. He spoke on how happy he was with his family. He always told me how much he loved you. Always know that. I will always remember the love and friendship he gave me. I know now he is with God, happy at peace and with his babies. Please. take care. Pattea
Jake was a true blessing to have as part of our softball family in Twin Falls, Idaho. We loved hanging and playing softball with him!! And not only that, him and his family stepped up and helped my family when my husband was so sick and fighting for his life. I will be eternally grateful for Jake and his family!! I am glad Jake that you get to spend time with your babies now and no longer have to feel any sorrow. I will miss you greatly and will always remember your generosity and you love you had for all of us!!
