Jakob FOERTSCH OSB (Ordo Sancti Benedicti), born 1896 in Neuensee, Upper Franconia (Bavaria), with the religious name Coelestin (investiture 1930, profession of faith 1931), was convent servant in the St. Peter Monastery and refectory attendant at St. Benedict College.

After the expulsion of the monks by the Nazi regime in 1942, Brother Coelestin lived in his hometown Neuensee in Bavaria, where he was arrested for his dissident stance and deported to Dachau concentration camp on 8 October 1943 and to Ravensbrueck concentration camp on 22 November 1943.

Brother Coelestine was murdered on 10 February 1944 in the Barth satellite camp.
