Is it a family business or a business family? There seems to be a fine line between the two. With the willingness of every family member stepping in when needed and adapting their role accordingly we like to think it’s the latter of the two. The youngest Jacob, who should have been named Jack for his jack of all trades skills and personality, is self-driven and will conquer anything put in front of him. Next would be Nick, you wouldn’t know it from first glance but this is the diamond in the rough, he is the most caring person that has many hidden creative talents. The roster continues with Kate, the professional in the family, who is there for guidance and the one we often look up to for inspiration. The oldest Luke, has more to him than his good looks and charm, is an aspiring entrepreneur that isn’t afraid of dreaming. The supportive mother and wife Jill (Jacobson) defines multi-tasking. Thirty years in retail management, keeping an active household organized and orderly, and she still finds time to explore and enjoy her cooking talents. We saved the best for last, Lawrence, who is also known as Larry, Papa, and Big Lar; his work is who he is, it isn’t an 8-5 task. His children get each of their traits from him: Jack of all trades, Caring, Inspiring, and an Entrepreneur.
As a life-long resident of Prior Lake, Lawrence is not only dedicated to both his family and clients but to his community as well. He followed his father Donald’s footsteps and joined the Prior Lake Fire Department in 1988 and proudly serves as a volunteer fireman. True to inspiring, his daughter Kate followed suit and joined the department in 2005, marking the first three generation family to serve the department.
Giving back to the community doesn’t stop there. Both Lawrence and Jill joined the St. Michaels Church Choir in 1974 as a way of giving back. Other ways also include donating fresh vegetables from the families’ garden every year to Franciscan Retreats Center and various senior homes in the community.
