Jackie Leroy Jacobs died after helping to save Arnold E. Ramer from burning, Troutdale, Oregon, March 16, 1982. Ramer, 75, was in his home when fire broke out in a bedroom there. Jacobs, 43, refrigerator serviceman, saw flames as he was driving in the vicinity and went to a fire station to alert help. Despite his history of coronary artery disease, Jacobs ran 500 feet back to the Ramer house and entered it. While assisting in removing Ramer to the front door of the house, Jacobs collapsed. He was carried outside but could not be revived. He died of a heart attack. Ramer, who was taken outside by neighbors, died of his burns a week later.
