Hi I'm Howard Scott Jacobson III

I've lived in Utah my whole life. I play all sorts of sports. I am going on a mission to Lyon, France. I am a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Howard Scott Jacobson III, but I go by Trace because I am the third Howard. You know: Uno, Dos, Tres. My dad thought that was funny. I was born to Scott and Tiffany Jacobson. I am the oldest of 4 siblings, 2 sisters and a brother. I have grown up playing sports. In high school, I have played basketball, baseball, golf, track and tennis. As well as playing sports, I have maintained a 4.0 throughout high school. As of a few weeks ago, I received my mission call to Lyon, France. I report to the M.T.C. on August 3rd. I am so excited.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church. Since then though, I have developed my own testimony of Jesus Christ and the Book of Mormon. Through reading the scriptures, I have been able to find answers to my questions and find things that have truly helped me throughout my life. That is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I have been my Deacons Quorum president, Teachers Quorum president, and the First and Second Assistant in the priest Quorum. I have done my best to encourage all of the young men my age to come to church as well as mutual and other ward activities. I do my best to live by example, although I'm not always the best at that. I have also tried to be a good home teacher with dad. We struggle some months, but we almost always get it done every month. I am now out serving my mission. I am in the MTC. I have been here for almost 4 weeks now which is crazy. I am so looking forward to getting to France and starting to share the Gospel with the French people.
