Jacob has a lot of favorite things. These include his favorite movie Passengers, his favorite song “Back When”, by Tim McGraw, his favorite sport Track, and his favorite food Deer steak. Jacob also has a favorite school memory! It was, “When I was the mascot for the Pep Rally”. Jacob states that his favorite school memory of his Senior year was the State Football Game!

Jacob’s plans for next year are to get a job in construction and live near Weskan. Everyone has to leave for a little while and Jacob said that he would miss the friendship that everyone has with each other. Friendship is rare and Weskan has an abundance of it.

Jacob also said that Chris Allen inspires him the most. “He has been my biggest mentor in life. He’s such a great father and a Godly man. He inspires me to keep learning and working to become a better person.”

Everyone has a hobby, right? Well, Jacob’s favorite hobby is fishing. When Jacob graduates, he wants to take the teachers with him if he could. His favorite subject is Business Math and his favorite teacher is Mr. Bretz because he always has good advice and treats everyone fairly. “My advice to the underclassmen is to enjoy every moment because once it’s gone you can’t get it back.”

In 10 years everyone hopes to have a good life and be all set with a plan for life. For Jacob, he sees himself living in Weskan, running his own construction business.

We wish Jacob good luck in his future and to embrace all the future holds for him.
