Jacob is an Associate Advisor at Foster Group. In this role, he assists with the delivery and implementation of financial plans and meets client service needs.

I grew up in Grimes, Iowa with three awesome siblings and two great parents. The foundation of my family was built on faith, which has allowed me to become the person I am today. I was blessed to grow up in a household that had lots of fun traveling and spending time together. Another huge blessing in my life was attending Iowa State University. Being from a Cyclone family, I always knew Ames was the place for me. My four years of college allowed me to meet a great community of friends, find a passion within Financial Planning, and grow closer to the Lord.

My biggest passions include being active, following sports, and hanging out with friends and family. As a former intern at Foster Group, I love that I get a chance to impact lives through my job. My goal is to serve others well, and Jesus is the perfect example set for me. I hope to be used in the building of his Kingdom and not my own.
