A memorial service will be held today for a Seckman High School football and lacrosse player who died unexpectedly last week
Jacob Siebert, 14, died early Wednesday. Some suspected the teen died as a result of football injuries. However, preliminary autopsy results showed Siebert had blood clots in his lungs which had traveled from his legs - a diagnosis unrelated to a football injury.
Jacob is survived by his parents, Thomas and Tracy Siebert, and his younger brother Sam, according to the St. Louis Post Dispatch. He was the first member of the Jaguar lacrosse team and an avid hunter and video gamer.
The service will be held at 6 p.m. at Windsor Baptist Church at 6701 Highway 61/67 in Imperial. A visitation beginning at 3 p.m. will precede the service at the church.
A memorial fund has been set up in honor of the teen at Heartland Bank in Arnold. You can write a check out to "Seckman Lacrosse Team" and either mail it or drop it off at the bank. The address is 1920 Richardson Road.
