After a stint in public accounting, he helped build three medical software startups, holding progressively more financial responsibility. After talking with a friend who owned a diesel repair shop, an idea struck him: Why not take the best ideas from the electronic medical records world and apply them to truck repair? Like a medical record for trucks?
Taking a leap of faith, Jacob left the world of medicine to work in a truck repair shop. The idea blossomed, and Fullbay launched in 2015. Today, it’s the number one platform for commercial truck repair in North America.
Jacob is a CPA, a cellist, a so-so surfer, and the father of eight children.
