After graduating from Blue Valley High School in 2017, Jacob continued his education at Missouri Welding Institute and then worked on the road as a contract welder. It was during this time that he found his love of the management side of the manufacturing business. Jacob joined Blue River Plumbing in March of 2021 as a Construction Manager, later moving into the role of Purchasing Manager. Working at Blue River has allowed him the opportunity to grow both his hard and soft skills in a diverse and challenging environment. When Jacob is not working, he enjoys spending time with his girlfriend and their two dogs, doing projects around his house, and playing his guitar.
