Business Development Specialist
Jakob Walther

I was born and raised in Milan, Michigan. I attended Milan High School where I varsity lettered in 4 sports: Soccer, Track, Football, and Basketball. My main focus in high school was sports more so than school and I pursed my athletic career past high school to play soccer in university. I received my bachelor’s in business administration from Spring Arbor University at the end of this summer. I had transferred from two other universities prior to finishing at Spring Arbor from playing soccer in university.

I cannot pick my most passionate because I am extremely passionate about multiple things so I will give my top 3. #1. is competition/sports, this ones pretty obvious for anyone that knows me. I can get a little to competitive with some things and I dislike losing so there’s really no amount of effort I won’t put in to make sure I win. #2. Would be bodybuilding/nutrition. I grew up tall but scrawny in high school and when I got to university I wanted to change that. I am into about year 5-6 of lifting and I still have a lot to learn but I want to compete on stage at some point. #3 would be anime. I had a couple of my childhood friends expose me to it and another one tell me just to watch one anime and next thing you know I have an anime list to watch that will probably outlive me.

I have taken the 16Personalities.com test before to understand myself better. I came out as a ISFJ-A which is a Defender personality type. Key attributes with this are supportive, reliable, observant, enthusiastic, and hardworking.

I am grateful for the opportunity to work with everyone here and create such awesome and positive relationships and to be able to have an effect in the work that we do. I also really enjoy how close we are to all the food options.

If a genie offered me one wish

Have you ever won a trophy and for what?
