Family


One of the main reasons I serve on the Boone County Council is to help preserve the unique lifestyle we all enjoy here. Our good schools, great neighbors, wonderful towns and solid business base make up a special quality of life you don’t find anywhere else in central Indiana but right here in Boone County.

No matter where you go in Boone County, one thing you’ll always see is families together. I’m very proud to say I’m a family man. My great wife and partner of 46+ years, Janet Jacob, and I are the proud parents of two sons and a daughter, all of whom are grown, with successful careers and have families of their own.

Our kids grew up in Boone County; went to school here, played all types of sports, belonged to 4H, worked summer jobs and learned a lot of life lessons that helped make them the great people they are today. I want the same quality of life for my grandchildren…and for all Boone County children.

Son Jeff has been an active attorney in Boone County for years. Jeff’s wife, Dr. Susan Jacob, has a family practice in Zionsville. They live in Whitestown with their two sons, sharing property with us on our cattle farm.

Our daughter Jill lives in Lyons, CO and son Chris currently resides in New Orleans, LA.

Our whole family enjoys the outdoor life and live it every chance we get. Camping trips with grandkids, days spent on our farm or big family vacations at Dogtooth Lake in Ontario, Canada – whenever we get the time, we prefer to spend it with our family.

As you see, I really enjoy the challenge and reward of fishing. I’ve spent a lot of time hoping to land a big fish. Sometimes I’m lucky enough to do so.

I support Steve Jacob for Boone County Council. Steve's continued leadership, values and integrity are what we, as citizens of Boone County, need for our future.

As Police Chief in Boone County, I am proud to call Steve Jacob, Councilman, but more importantly, a good friend to the residents of Boone County and I am PROUD to support him for our Boone County Council!

The Boone County Council, under Steve's leadership did a yeoman's job of steering us through difficult times and he continues to do so today. I think Boone County, under Steve's leadership is in good financial condition.

Steve thank you for all of your help with the mental health legislation we passed at the Statehouse this year. You’re a great public servant!

"Having worked with Steve Jacob on the Boone County Council, I have observed first hand how he uses his experience and leadership to bring people together with a consensus building approach to management. In addition, Steve's transparency and integrity are above reproach. I strongly urge the Boone County community to re-elect Steve Jacob."
