“Blessed is the man who makes the LORD his trust” (Ps 40:5).

On Tuesday, March 31, 2020, the LORD took Prof. Jakob Geertsema from this life and into eternal glory.  He was 84 years old.  As our former professor of New Testament studies, he is lovingly remembered by our seminary community.  With humility and sincerity, he served all whom the Lord put on his path: family, congregations, federation, seminary, and the church worldwide.  He was dearly loved and deeply appreciated as a wise and pastoral man. May our heavenly Father comfort the children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren of the Geertsema family at this time.

Further details can be found on the website of the Kitching, Steepe and Ludwig funeral home.

“‘Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master’” (Matt 25:21).
