This 14-year-old ambitious young man is Jacob. He is a good student, enjoys playing video games and being outdoors. He is athletic and a good team player. He has played basketball, baseball and is interested in playing for his school’s football team. Jacob’s favorite color is red and favorite animal is a dog.

Jacob is looking for a family that he can play board games with and take him to get wings. He would also like to be able to go swimming and go sled riding with a family. His Wendy’s Wonderful Kids recruiter, Carol Phipps, enjoys taking Jacob out for treats, but would love to see Jacob have a family that can provide him the love and nurturing that each child deserves.
