While raising three children, Jamie and Denise Jacob became aware of the gap in experiences, access to services and opportunities available to their own children compared to many children growing up in households with less financial resources. This inequality is unacceptable to the Jacob family, and was the motivation to develop the Jamie and Denise Jacob Family Foundation. The purpose of the foundation is to support programs that provide young adults, children and parents support and guidance to become happy, confident and productive members of their community.
