Bio:  This future federal judge has a goal to provide value-added opportunities to Oklahoma BPA members and hopes in doing so that the organization will continue its proud legacy of leadership and service. Jacob recalls his most memorable event being the months his Econ Research Team spent preparing for SLC competition, hearing the team being called to stage, waiting for the results, and ultimately receiving first place while his peers cheered around him. He strives to be an optimistic and studious leader and calls Bristow, Oklahoma his hometown. When Jacob manages to find some free time he loves to play video games, watch movies, and look at memes.

What is unique about Jacob? He has had the opportunity to travel to Washington DC twice to learn about the justice system and is terrified of spiders…except tarantulas, which he loves to interact with.
