Jacob Alger is a very tough young man. Don't let his quiet and shy demeanor fool you - this dude is full of laughs and love. The Alger family takes family a camping trip every November. During their camping trip in November of 2018, Jacob's father Bill awoke in the middle of the night and went to use the restroom. Shortly after he left, the family was awoken by paramedics asking if everyone in their party was accounted for. Jacob's mother Wendy followed the paramedics to the bathroom, only to find her husband Bill unconscious. Tragicly, Bill Alger passed away at the campground only 3 days after Jacob turned 15 years old. Bill was only 49 years old.
Jacob was nominated for his November Smile by family friend and church member, Dave Fleming.
