Jake Jacobson

Jake moved to Nevada in 2008 and became active with the NWEA Executive Board attending meetings and co-established the collection system committee and workshops. Jake also created a local PWO based collections systems supergroup comprised of collection system supervisors and leads from all municipalities in the southern valley. This group would meet once a month and discuss miscellaneous topics from operations practices, exchanging org charts, vital emergency contact information for SSO’s, understanding available mutual resources, and lessons learned.  He helped support training efforts of NWEA, participated in fund raising with Water For People, and supported the goals and strategic planning for the Association.

Jake also is a certified Collection System and Wastewater Treatment Plant Operator through NWEA.  He has contributed to exam writing and was voted to the Board of Directors for the Associated Boards of Certification (ABC). Although an independent organization of NWEA, Jake was one of three to work with ABC at an executive level, who was affiliated with NWEA. NWEA had the biggest executive level presence than any other state in the nation.  

Tri-State Seminar is a flagship training platform that NWEA is a partnership of. Although he started with Tri-State in 2001, since 2008 he has represented NWEA at Tri-State and contributed to enhancing NWEA’s presence and role in the Seminar. He has participated as speaker, Session Chair, Program Chair and through officer positions of Vice Chair, Chair, and currently on the Board of Managers in his final year of Past Chair.

Furthermore, the volunteerism, giving back to the community, and supporting the industry doesn’t just occur during work hours, there is a lot of after hours, weekends and family support that goes with it. Jake is very proud of his family for supporting NWEA, and very proud of NWEA.
