A funeral will be held today in Portland for Howard George Jacobsen, formerly of Cottage Grove, and the founder-owner of Pacific Saw and Knife Co., Portland. Jacobsen died in Southern California when his twin-engine airplane crashed in the San Bernadino mountains on Jan. 7. The plane was found last Sunday.
