Jacob Miller, age 34, of Panora died on Jan. 31, 2024, at the Gulf Coast Medical Center in Panama City, Florida.

Jacob was born on Sept. 7, 1989, to Scott and Sherri Miller in Des Moines. Jacob was a 2008 graduate of Perry High School and attended the University of Colorado in Colorado Springs and Iowa State University.

He loved sharing his passion for basketball with coaching in Des Moines and pickup games with his nephew, Lincoln. He especially loved teaching finer points of the golf game and swimming to Lincoln and was looking forward to doing the same with his nieces, Ellie and Rylee. He loved his Iowa Hawkeyes and Green Bay Packers, and he also loved to argue with anyone who wasn’t a fan of these two teams!

Jacob is survived by parents, Scott and Sherri Miller; brothers, Eric (Darcy) Miller and Josef (Kayla) Miller; brother-in-law, Matt Bryan; nephew, Lincoln; and nieces, Ellie and Rylee.

Jacob was preceded in death by his sister, Sarah Bryan; and his grandparents, Joan and Warren Miller, Jimmy Miller and Carol Sprott.

A Celebration of Life will be held on April 20, 2024, at the Perry Golf and Country Club, from 2-4 p.m.

Memorials can be made directly to the family, University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital in Iowa City (he loved that wave!) or Tori’s Angels.
