I first got into lifting when I was 12. I started off with an old school 1970s weider bench and dumbbells that my moms boyfriend gave me. I was looking to get stronger for football once I got to high school, and fell in love with the iron. It wasn’t until 2009 while deployed to Iraq that I was introduced to the sport of bodybuilding. I met a few different guys that competed back home and learned the difference between weight lifting and using the muscle mind connection to truly build muscle. For me it became my way of canceling all the negativity that comes with war.
Once I came home I continued to lift, but really didn’t start gearing my training towards the competitive side until 2017. I was struck by a vehicle at work which led to a 22 month recovery and a lot of extra weight gained. Once I was cleared to train I hit the ground running and haven’t looked back since.
My goals are to continue to push myself to build up my weak points this offseason, to one day become an IFBB pro, and hopefully compete at the Olympia.

I started lifting when I was 19. One of the trainers at the gym I was at during that time did local shows and wanted to coach me. He thought I was a good fit for bodybuilding. After my first show back in 2009 I was hooked. Fast forward to 2018 nationals in Miami where I placed 1st in welterweight and won my IFBB pro card. I love training and the sport and looking forward to competing in the IFBB Pro league and making my mark there.
Here is a list of shows I have competed in...
- 2009 Oregon Ironman: 4th Place Bantamweight
-2012 Emerald Cup: 4th Place Lightweight
-2013 Emerald Cup: 1st Place Lightweight
-2013 Empire Classic: 1st Place Middleweight, and Overall

Jacob Has been overcoming the odds and keeping his head down grinding his entire life.
My junior year of high school - I stood 4’9” and 95lbs and a kid tackled me into a locker. I had a concussion that put me out for three weeks. After that day my focus was the gym 24/7.When I graduated high school I was 5’3
135lbs after only one year of lifting.
After my freshman year of college I was 5’6” and 205lbs.
My 165 total is 1301.5lbs
I’ll be competing at 181 on May 16, 2020 for the first time in six years. Goal is 1530 total (550squat, 365bench, 615deadlift)
Jacob will be moving some heavy weight this year in powerlifting. He is motivated and his addiction to coffee makes him a perfect fit. Lets wish him luck this year on his journey.
