About Us

About Us

Jacoby's Shield

Jacoby’s Shield is passionate about helping families heal who face the unthinkable, to continue living after the loss of a child.


Jacoby's Shield was born from a tragic event. Co-founders Stuart and Xaviera Latta lost their firstborn son Jacoby in 2014 from injuries he received while playing on a playground. Although losing Jacoby is a tragic event, the Latta's do not want Jacoby’s life to be remembered as a tragedy. This is why Jacoby's Shield was created.


We are passionate about helping families heal who face the unthinkable.

Fallen Avenger

Jacoby Latta

Big hair, big smile, big personality. That statement sums up Jacoby perfectly.


We were blessed to have Jacoby for three years, one month and two days. Jacoby is considered a fallen Avenger by Marvel Comics. He is the youngest Avenger ever! He is the reason we stand behind the Shield. Get behind the Shield, Jacoby’s Shield.

Helping Grieving Families

The mission of Jacoby’s Shield is to help parents, grandparents and siblings grieving a death find connection and healing. Our vision is that no parent or sibling should be alone in grief. We expect to achieve this vision by helping the entire family unit move through their grief together as one.


Whether stillborn or 50, every year, countless parents experience the death of a child. We believe that families that grieve together should heal and grow stronger together. Our unique programs give parents and siblings the chance to cry, laugh, grow, and heal, together.


We believe that families that grieve together should heal and grow together.
