Jacob and I have been friends since he had glasses and I had no eyebrows. It's amazing how going through middle school and high school together can bond friends together. When I suggested taking senior photos at one of our rival high schools, Jacob jumped on board and even supplied the symphonic voice of Ingrid Michelson to serenade us in the car, as well as his best buddy Alex to carry our things and make us giggle. (Thanks, Alex!)
Jacob is set apart by his contagious energy, his fabulously quirky lifestyle, and the best jokes in town. But what makes him all the more special is his heart of gold. He won't ever admit it...but Jacob is one of the most compassionate people out there. As sad as I am that I won't get to see him every morning at school anymore, I can't help but be excited for all the people in this world who get to reap the benefits of calling Jacob friend.
