Our son, Jacob Patrick Dohogne, peacefully passed away on Thursday, September 3, 2020. Jacob, often hailed by “JP”, was born November 24, 1998 at Rose Medical Center in Denver, Colorado. Jacob was the eldest son and is survived by his Father Mark Dohogne, Stepmother Marilyn Dohogne, Mother Jill Anderson, Brothers Adam Dohogne and Luke Dohogne, Stepbrother Tom Preston, and Stepsisters Aubrey Atkinson, and Sofia Preston.

On Thanksgiving Day, November 26, 1998, Jacob was diagnosed with a fatal heart condition. Jacob was given a blessed miracle on April 20, 1999 at Denver Children’s Hospital. Jacob took every advantage of this blessed opportunity with faith, courage with resolve, and strength of character. In other words, “Grit”. Jacob graduated St Mary’s Parish school, Heritage High school, and Colorado State University with a BS in marketing…. All with Honors.

JP was a thrill seeker. Jumping off ladders, going fast on anything with wheels, or standing on the edge of the Grand Canyon with no guard rail just weeks ago. The secret purchase of a motorcycle racing helmet in high school confirmed the “gene”. JP was extremely loving, caring, intelligent, educated, and blessed with humor. JP watched informational videos much faster than normal speed to learn faster. He became extremely knowledgeable on cars, motorcycles, firearms, hunting, fishing, camping, survival skills, and airplanes. He was also fascinated by the history of World War II. JP built over 25 different models of WWII airplanes and hung them from his bedroom ceiling in formation. JP enjoyed many camping, fishing and hunting trips with family, and loved the outdoors. JP loved the game of baseball. He played in the Arapahoe Youth League and played through sophomore year at Heritage High School. His coaches always commented how well he understood “the game”. Jacob also loved bacon by the pound, and peanut butter smeared on hamburgers!

JP’s sense of humor and laugh was one of a kind. He recognized extreme oddity in situations and exposed off the wall perspectives. His statements made people pause to recognize the sarcasm. He also accelerated any unwanted conversation by answering with only 1 word (yep – nope – sure), earning the title of “1-word Jake” from nurses and doctors. His wit kept you on your toes.

Jacob was diagnosed with cancer in his senior year of high school, where family and friends, and the Heritage HS baseball family came to his side with incredible love and support. Despite chemotherapy, JP achieved a 4.3 GPA while taking AP Chemistry and History. He enjoyed tormenting nurses by turning off the alarms and removing his own I-V after treatments, as he wanted to be anywhere else but in a hospital. JP was in and out of remission 3 more times during college, and still graduated on time. With a job offer in hand, JP had plans to move to Houston TX, as he loved the heat and the potential of fishing in the Gulf. The last diagnosis was dire, although he NEVER gave up, and faced it head on, again with grit. No matter how miserable the situation, or how high the pain, he never complained or felt sorry for himself. Jacob never wanted anything handed to him, he always wanted to earn it.

His heart never failed him and was the toughest kid we know! We were blessed with a fun-filled summer with family and a beautiful passing into our Lord’s arms while Mark and Marilyn held him. He will be dearly missed by the many lives he touched and inspired. We love you Jacob!!!

In lieu of flowers, we ask that you make a donation to the Anthony Rizzo Family Foundation, a cancer research center of your choice, or the Make-A-Wish Foundation, and hug your kids every chance you get.

Mass will be celebrated on Saturday, September 19 , 2020 at 10:00 a.m. at Brophy Chapel, 4701 N. Central Ave, Phoenix, AZ 85012.

On October 7, 2020 a Mass will be celebrated at Noon, at St. Mary’s Parish, 6853 S. Prince St. Littleton, CO 80122.
Reception is TBD

I worked with Jacob a few times a week at the Colorado State University rams horn dining center. It wasn’t the most glamorous job but Jacob always made it more interesting and fun. We always worked the pots shift which required scrubbing pots and we would play classic rock and roll and always finish our job early. I am so deeply sorry for your loss, he will he missed and God bless.

Mark and family, Words are not adequate to express my sympathy for you. I loved being a part of the transplant team that worked your family early in Jacob’s life. He did indeed have GRIT, and certainly you did as well! The long, difficult wait for a donor heart, not knowing from one day to the next if you child will be given a chance is one of the most difficult things a family can go through. In reading his obituary I would definitely agree that Jake lived his life to the fullest. You surrounded him with love from the very beginning, every minute of every day, he was blessed to have you as a father Mark.
I’m so glad I had an opportunity to be involved in Jacob’s life in some small way.

former transplant coordinator

Condolence from Hugh on September 11th, 2020 6:21 pm

On behalf of the LK Ranch in Meeker, CO, we offer our deepest and sincerest condolences to the entire Dohogne family, and all those whose lives Jacob touched- as he did ours. Jacob and his brother were our guests for the youth elk hunt some years ago, and we got to know the Dohogne family in a personal way. We all bonded over a safe and successful hunt, and watching Mark teach his boys how to process their own elk was a wonderful sight. May God Bless you all, and we trust that Jacob is fully restored in the Kingdom, where we will One day meet again.
You are in our thoughts and prayers.
The Klinglesmith family, &
Hugh & Courtney Fadal

Condolence from Elena Statham on September 13th, 2020 3:11 pm

Jacob always seemed to be smiling. That’s one of the things I remember most about him. He was always joking around, especially messing around with his younger brothers Adam and Luke, and having the biggest smile on his face. I am so sincerely sorry for your loss. He was such a beautiful person who brought so much joy to those around him. He is dearly missed❤️

Condolence from Rick Iacabucci on September 13th, 2020 5:01 pm

Rick, Helen, Danielle, Jordan, Anthony Iacabucci

Condolence from Karl Leaf on September 17th, 2020 7:48 am

Extremely heartfelt sympathy to the Dohogne Family–can’t imagine the pain in losing such a fine young man. Hope you take some comfort in knowing so many friends and family are thinking of you.

Condolence from Jenna Sopfe on October 1st, 2020 7:48 am

I am honored to have been one of Jacob’s oncologist. He was a joy to take care of – always keeping us entertained and on his toes. I vividly recall him in his hospital room, surrounded by his huge college textbooks, working away as he received chemotherapy. I was, and still am, inspired by him and his dedication to living for himself and his goals. I am so sorry, Marilyn and Mark and the rest of the family, for your loss. You are all so strong and loved Jacob so fiercely. Thank you for trusting me to care for him.

Condolence from Fr. Michael Rocha on October 8th, 2020 6:29 pm

Rest in peace brother! In the bond.

Condolence from Denise DIckson on October 12th, 2020 7:06 am

Hello Mark and family, Reed told me of Jacob’s passing and my heart just sank. What an energetic and smart kid he was. He always made me laugh because he always seemed to be smiling or studying objects like he he couldn’t wait to take them apart and put them back together again. Jacob reached out to Reed earlier this year and they talked about getting together for a drink. Like all students, Reed seemed to busy. He said to me, “Mom, I wish I’d gone out with him.”

I’m so sorry for everyone’s loss, how sad for all.

Condolence from william loyer on October 24th, 2020 8:25 am
