Jacob grew up outside of Kansas City and in his free time, he enjoys following his beloved Kansas City Royals, Kansas City Chiefs and Sporting KC. He earned a B.A. in Political Science from Lewis and Clark College.

His dad put golf clubs in his hands at the age of 3, which became a passion that led him play on the Lewis and Clark golf team and serve as the golf team representative for the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee for three years. His dream is to play Pebble Beach and Cypress Point one day.
