A Man of Many Talents
Today’s spotlight is coming direct from one of our newest associates! He took it upon himself to write his story for you, so why not let him tell you himself.
So let’s get to it- Jordan Jacobs introduces himself!
My starting path began in Frankfort, Kentucky. After graduating high school, I joined the Kentucky National Guard in 2010. In 2011, I deployed to Iraq in support of “Operation New Dawn.” In 2012, I returned home and move to Richmond, KY to pursue my undergraduate at Eastern Kentucky University. Midway into my undergrad, I had declared Criminal Justice as my major, and joined the Kentucky State Police. While finishing my degree, I later moved closer to home and joined the Scott County Sheriff’s Office. During my tenure in law enforcement, I served as a patrolman, detective, and srt sniper. In 2020-21, I was deployed to California to aid in border protection under U.S. Customs Border Patrol. In 2022, I finished my master’s degree in Justice Administration and began transitioning out of the military/law enforcement to be with my wife in Northern Kentucky. While the transition was hard, I often reflect on the great relationships I’ve made thus far. I’m very fortunate.
I married my awesome wife on in 2016, in Georgetown, KY. Our child is one “wild” toy poodle named Lou. Something interesting about me is I recently ran my first half-marathon. The interesting part is that I was severely under-conditioned and have a newfound appreciation for long distance running. I love playing cornhole, watching the NFL and Clemson football, exercising, traveling, and Bourbon collecting.
I pride myself on staying disciplined. Further, my motivation is to put myself in situations that are continually a challenge. At PGT, I enjoy walking into a company that not only believes in the mission, but also in one another; it really is a family here.
For anyone looking to join our team, I would say – dreams and teams work together!
