Hi I'm Jacob

I'm a missionary, a musician, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been very involved in music programs of all sorts throughout my high school career due to my innate passion for music. I committed hundred of hours as the Drum Major for my high school's marching band for two years, and played Trumpet in a wide variety of ensembles as well as Euphonium in my school's top wind ensemble. I like to dabble in musical composition, but I will admit I have quite a bit to learn. :) I also sang in an audition youth choir and have sung all around the community and in church with them! Preforming music is so cleansing and I feel like I can identify with and express emotions perfectly through it. I am also an Eagle Scout in the Boy Scouts of America program, and I have a job as a Lifeguard at a few pools in my community. I hope to also be admitted into BYU so that I can receive a higher education and perhaps become a dentist someday with a serious hobby in music performance and composition.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been through a lot as I'm sure many people have, but I have found that I can always trust Heavenly Father. As long as I always trust in Him, I know that everything will work out in the end.

How I live my faith

My Boy Scout Troop functions through the church, and we meet on a weekly basis preparing and executing merit badges and service projects. We have a particularly large amount of Eagle Projects come out of our Troop, which have made differences in the community, like one where we labeled all of the storm drains with "no dumping" patches and my own project where we essentially gave my school's band room a much needed remodel. Every month my father and I visit a few disabled and elderly and communicate, listen, and share our love with them. It's always a lot of fun to hear what they have to say; it is surprising what you can learn if you are willing to listen to others.
