Growing up in Eagle Michigan, Jacob Thom knows what rural is. His village had a fairgrounds, liquor store, bar and post office. That might beat places in northern NH. He grew up with 27 acres of land to run go carts, 4-wheelers and dirt bikes with his three brothers and they had lots of fun, crashes and broken bones. Jacob went to college in Michigan while he worked for the Michigan Department of Revenue. He held a variety of positions at the state over his several years of employment before moving to NH. He graduated with a degree in history but knew once he took his first accounting course that that was the career for him. Jake was “set up” with his wife, of less than two years, by his childhood friend. Kelly went to law school in Michigan, passed the Michigan bar and was a practicing attorney before they came east to join Kelly’s family who lives in Dover.
Jake is intense and focused while he works, and approaches his hobbies the same way: lifting weights and hunting. He works out as a stress release. It was Jake’s Dad that taught him that no matter what you are doing: shoveling, school, work, or lifting weights, always do the best you can and Jake tries to do that every day.
Jacob actually splits his time between the Wolfeboro and Dover offices. Dover remains on his photo banner due to the timing of this late breaking news flash.
