My Story

for everyone

Kadang, ketika orang ada masalah, mereka hanya butuh untuk didengar dan dipeluk, bukan yang lain. Terima kasih kepada Tuhan yang Maha Kuasa karena seberat apa pun masalah hidupku, ada orang yang benar-benar mencintaiku: my mom, my dad, and my father, lebih dari orang lain yang mengatakan mereka “sayang” dan “peduli” kepadaku.

Thanks buat Bang Harri untuk sharring linknya dan terutama Jacob Schemmel karena sudah mau berbagi. 🙂






Hey Everyone!

My name is Jacob Schemmel. I’m 18 years old and a Freshman in College. People always tell me I have the biggest smile and you can always see it 

It’s true I always do, I love smiling. Even when I’m having the worst day…

I used to hate it more than anything…

Everyone thought I was the happiest kid out there.

Truth is…I was so far from it, I forgot what it felt like to be happy at one point…

2010 was the worst year of my life…

January 1st 2010…My grandpa died, one of my greatest friends and the greatest man I have ever known…9 years before him lost my other grandpa too…

Not a day goes by where I don’t think about them. I never told them how much they meant to me…I love you Grandpa Schemmel and Granpa Schwab

April 28th 2010. My greates inspiration in life, the strongest, nicest most loving kid I had ever know, one of the best friends I had ever had, he died because of a horrible accident…I cried for 4 days in a row. Still cry about him today.. 

He lived life by 3 simple words, Everybody Love Everybody.

A week later, I found his bucket list, his #1 goal, “Make an Impact on someone’s life”

He made the biggest impact on my life. That is now my main goal in life. Not a day goes by that I don’t think about him. I never told him how much he meant to me…I love you, Stephen.

August 1st 2010. I lost my best friend from the 10tg grade to a terrifying car accident. A girl everyone loved, and a friend everyone needed…Not a day goes by where I don’t think about her…I never told her how much she meant to me…I love you, Taylor.

August 10th 2010. I almost lost my own life in a horrible accident…The doctors told me I was a centimeter away from losing my life. I was in the hospital for 4 days…I had visitors everyday from 10 am-10pm every day I was there…It made me so much stronger…They still don’t know how I made it through. I do…my guardian angels: My granpa’s, Stephen, Taylor, and God…Thank you 

September…We had to move out of our house. The house I had grew up in my whole life…It’s getting demolished as I make this video 

October…I almost lost one of my best friends from the 8th grade to suicide…I thank God every day, that I didn’t lose him..I love you bud. Depression had set in and didn’t seem like it was ever gonna leave. But I kept my head up and put that smile everyone loves on my face and kicked his ass out! (Sorry for the language ).

How was I able to do this after everything I went through?

Its because I have the best family and friends I could ever ask for…

And so do you..

God loves you and He knows there is someone that loves you for who you are, and if there is no one that will,then I will J

I love everybody ELE!

A couple months ago a kid I graduated shot himself. RIP Nick. Just a week ago, a 8th grade from my hometown killed herself, 8th grade…RIP Nyree.


Life is too short and suicide is not the answer…

If you see someone who is having a rough day, say hello or start a conversation or even just a smile. Its amazing the power a smile can have.


My message is this, no matter how hard life gets, keep your head up and keep on smiling it will get better…I promise you.

RIP to all other fallen classmates at RHS…

If you ever need to talk, send me a message or talk to me in person. I’ll be more than glad to talk.

Thank you for watching. God loves you…and so do I
