Born and raised in Chicago, Jacob is a college student studying Marketing at the University of Illinois at Chicago. He got into candle making in 2019 when made a few batches to gift to friends and family during the holiday season.
He quickly realized how much he loved candle the entire process, creating them from start to finish. It brought him immense joy to put so much hard work into something and see the joy it brought to others. Jacob’s Candles was born from this joy.
