Jerry Jacob

Jacob, BJ ’88, put his 20-year journalism career on hold to join the U.S. Army in 2007. A combat medic, he deployed to Iraq, Afghanistan and Haiti to make deployment less frequent for others. “It seemed to me that if more of us pulled on the rope, we wouldn’t have to pull as hard or as much,” Jacob says. He returned to work as a KY3-TV anchor in Springfield, Mo., March 4, 2012.
