Jacob Bartola Solano died tragically on November 23rd, 2016, leaving family, friends, and Cedar Key School in shock.
Jacob was one of 10 seniors at Cedar Key High School this year and one of only 3 boys in the class of 2017. He first enrolled at CKS as a pre-K student. To help the tight-knit class cope with the sudden loss of a classmate, a crisis team met with the students Monday morning, on the first day back to school since Jacob’s accident. The students talked, wrote down their feelings and memories, and created posters for the Solano family.
Jacob always radiated the halls with his contagious smile and laughter, touching the hearts of every student he came across. His absence will be greatly missed, which was shown Monday at school with banners made by high school students.
Jacob may be gone, but he’ll never be forgotten.

The school’s annual Pep Rally will be orchestrated by the cheerleaders on Monday, December 5th, during the sixth period of the school day. That afternoon all four of the CKS teams will take on the Trenton Tigers in Cedar Key, beginning with the middle school girls at 3:30 pm, the middle school boys at 4:30 pm, varsity girls at 5:30 pm and the varsity boys at 7 pm.
