F. D. “Pete” Jacobson, 91, of Baytown, peacefully departed this life Saturday, March 27, 2021 at his home, with his loving family and friends by his side.

Pete was born August 31, 1929, in Rochelle, Texas, to parents; Felix R. and Lillian Hein Jacobson, a former resident of St. Croix, Virgin Islands, and has resided in Baytown for the past 48 years.  He was a graduate of Casa Grande High School in Arizona, a decorated veteran of the US Army with service during Korea, prior to marrying his sweetheart, Nancy L. Harrell Jacobson, on December 27, 1952, in Corpus Christi, Texas. Pete and Nancy were active members of Missouri Street Church of Christ in Baytown. Their lives in St. Croix U.S.V.I, and Soviet Russia afforded opportunities to help establish several church congregations.  Pete also enjoyed fishing, boating, and playing golf.

In business Pete found himself always at the forefront of fast-paced technological advances in the Alumina, Oil Refining and Specialty Chemical Additive industries. Pete’s warm embrace of all he met produced lifelong relationships the world over.
