Staff Sgt. Jacob McMillan, of Lafayette, Lousiana was a 1999 Lafayette High School graduate where he was a member of the wrestling team. He wrestled at the 171-pound weight class, and finished fifth in the 1999 state tournament in his division. Jacob joined the Army right after graduation and was dedicated to serving in the military. He was a respectful and thoughtful person and always remembered to send thank you notes. Jacob was close friends with Army Cpl. Joseph C. Thibodeaux also of Lafayette, who died Sept. 1, 2004. He was the son of Gerald McMillan and Kathryn Wedemeyer McMillan and was preceded in death by his grandfathers, John Joseph McMillan and Gordon Louis Wedemeyer.
