In memory of Corporal Jacob A. Tate.
       WHEREAS,  The members of the Senate of the 129th General Assembly of Ohio extend our sincere condolences to the family and friends of Corporal Jacob A. Tate on the sorrowful occasion of his death; and

       WHEREAS,  Although there are no words to ease the sorrow now felt, surely there is solace in the remembrance of having known such an outstanding individual. A graduate of Gahanna Christian Academy, Jacob Tate was a member of the 2nd Battalion, 9th Marine Regiment, 2nd Marine Division, II Marine Expeditionary Force of the U.S. Marine Corps, and he was serving in Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom when he was killed in the line of duty. His valiant efforts were truly admirable, and his absence will be keenly felt; and

       WHEREAS,  In many significant endeavors, Jacob Tate always used his talents to the benefit of others, and the laurels of his life stand as a tribute not only to him but also to those he left behind, including his parents, James and Janice, his wife, Amy, and his infant son. The great traditions of our country's service men and women are an important chapter of American history, and his family and friends can be proud of the sacrifices he made to ensure freedom and justice for all people; and

       WHEREAS,  Although the void his death has created can never be filled, Jacob Tate will be remembered as a spirited individual who contributed immeasurably to the world around him. It is certain that the world is a richer place for his having been in it, and he will be sorely missed; therefore be it

       RESOLVED,  That we, the members of the Senate of the 129th General Assembly of Ohio, in adopting this Resolution, mourn the loss and salute the memory of a truly unique individual, Corporal Jacob A. Tate; and be it further

       RESOLVED,  That the Clerk of the Senate transmit a duly authenticated copy of this Resolution to the family of Corporal Jacob A. Tate.

I, Vincent L. Keeran, hereby certify that the above is a true and correct copy of Senate Resolution No. 7, adopted by the Ohio Senate, January 11, 2011.
Vincent L. Keeran
Clerk of the Senate
Senator Tom Niehaus
