Hi I'm Jacob

I am a husband to a beautiful wife and a father to three beautiful children. I love Syracuse basketball. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Syracuse, New York and went to college at BYU, where I met my wife. After BYU, I went to law school at Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska. After graduating, I stayed in Nebraska, where my wife and I are raising our children.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised a Mormon. I've never really struggled with my beliefs, even though I grew up in an area with not many other Mormons. The Gospel just makes sense and I've always felt strongly that it needs to be a part of my life. I've always known the Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ know and love me personally.

How I live my faith

I live my Faith by doing the things I'm supposed to do. I work hard to provide for my family, while also making time to spend quality time with them. My children are always first to remember to read scriptures before bed. They love learning about the prophets and apostles, and especially about Jesus Christ. It's amazing how much children really grasp. My wife and I set an example for our children by serving in various functions in our local church. I've been a Sunday School teacher for various age groups, and currently take care of our local membership records.
