Jacob is a junior from Plymouth, Michigan. Studying business with a double minor in political science and law, justice and social change, Jacob does mock trial because he loves the team and the competition. He is a proud member of the greatest lineage in Michigan Mock Trial, the Yazdynasty, comprising the most opinionated members of the team, both past and present.
When Jacob's not doing mock trial, you can often find him spending time with his business fraternity, PGN, wearing flannel shirts on Fridays, and dominating the rest of the mock trial team in racquetball. He enjoys hiking, traveling, playing tennis, reading novels, and watching the occasional Netflix show. A self-described optimist, Jacob loathes two things: musicals and Lexicon Pharmaceuticals (-29.67%).
