As a member of the Fort Myers Coin Club, Jacob considers himself to be an avid numismatist — a student of currency — and has collected coins since he was four years old. Because of this, of all the historical sites to see in Washington, D.C., he is most excited to visit the U.S. Bureau of Engraving and Printing, where he can watch currency being created. At home, he has a dog, Snickers, and two fancy goldfish. In his free time, Jacob most enjoys playing fantasy sports, especially fantasy football.
