The Vallejo Adult School is mourning the death of its principal Friday after he succumbed to injuries sustained in a hit-and-run incident last week.
Paul Jacobs, 63, was struck by an unidentified vehicle at about 10:40 p.m. Feb. 13 as he rode his bicycle in the bike lane on Columbus Parkway, near Hilary Way and not too far from his home off Ascot Parkway.
The driver failed to stop, and Jacobs was flown to John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek. He never regained consciousness again and died Thursday night, Superintendent Ramona Bishop said.
"He just never came back to us," Bishop said Friday as she prepared to notify the Vallejo City Unified School District staff.
The news stunned the tightly knit Vallejo Adult School campus.
