We knew Dr. Samuel (Raju) and his late wife (Joyce) for more than 25 years, they were both beacons of love and service along with their children (Pushpa and Sibi). His sudden passing leaves behind a huge void in all our lives. May God give his family peace and reconciliation.

Please accept my heart felt condolence. I not only speak for myself but the entire ICU team, staff and leadership at Unity point Methodist. In the short time that Jacob worked with us he touched our lives in so many ways. He was not only an excellent physician but a compassionate and caring person an amazing teacher and mentor. He will be missed by all of us.
