Jacob Hansen Conrad

Jacob Hansen Conrad, a lifelong resident of Plainfield, passed away at the age of 21, on Monday, September 7, 2020.  Jacob was born in Aurora, IL, on October 27, 1998, the son of Darren and Nancy Conrad. He was a 2017 graduate of Plainfield Central High School and attended Illinois State University and Joliet Junior College. He had a passion for playing hockey and was gifted in the sport. He grew up playing with both Jaguar Hockey Club and Chicago Hawks Hockey Club.  He was also a member of the high school team and Illinois State University team. 

When he wasn’t on the ice, he enjoyed listening to music, video gaming, working out, and hanging with his friends. He could also be found next to some water with a fishing pole in his hand.

Jacob was kind, outgoing, fun-loving, always had a positive outlook on life, yet at times, could also be sarcastic, but in a loving way.  But above all, he was a wonderful son, a protective brother, and a good friend that would do anything for anyone. His presence will be missed by all who loved him.

Jacob is survived by his parents, Darren and Nancy (nee Stolpestad) Conrad; his sister, Nicole Conrad; paternal grandfather, Raymond Conrad; maternal grandmother, Jill Stolpestad; and aunts and uncles, Patrick and Tina Conrad, Amy Conrad, and Eric and Kimberly Stolpestad. Several cousins and numerous teammates and friends also survive.

He is preceded by his paternal grandmother, Kathleen Conrad and maternal grandfather, Norman Stolpestad.
