Charity

There is no better way to experience love and
compassion than by helping those in need,
a call Knights answer every day.

Unity

Knights banded together can accomplish more
than any of us could accomplish individually
in support of our Church and priests.

Fraternity

Knights socialize together and take care of each other –
we have each others’ back.

Patriotism

Members of the Knights of Columbus are proud
of our devotion to God and country,
and believe in standing up for both.

Toni and Gerald Jacob at the Friday March 22, 2019 fish fry.

Gerald and Toni Jacob

The Jacobs have lived in DeSoto for 14 years and are enjoying semi-retirement. Gerald, who retired from the U.S. Navy in 2007 following 22 years, splits his time between Ubering and working some for Penske trucking. Toni runs a CPR business five minutes from their home. They will celebrate their 15th anniversary in September; Gerald’s first wife died 17 years ago, after they’d been married 32 years. Gerald left his native Pakistan in 1977 (Memorial Day weekend) to make a new life in the United States. He headed to New Hampshire, the home of an aunt; living with a blood relative was required for making such a move. Life with the Navy took him to Japan, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Singapore and through Asia. He left as a Petty Officer Second Class. Gerald and Toni moved in 1981 to Texas, which offered a more reasonable cost of living. “Texas has always been good to me,” Gerald said. Asked what he enjoys about being a member of the KC’s, Gerald cites the three principles of council membership: charity, unity and fraternity. And they collectively enjoy helping out at our concession stands, too.
