Jacob Olson Former Staff

Jacob Olson is a senior attending Redwood High School. He is a way better Jacob than the one from Twilight could ever even hope to be. He hails from the lands of Hawaii, where he spent his adventurous childhood. He even found the possibility of being a Power Ranger or a Pokémon trainer as his future career, but learned by the age of 9 that that wouldn't happen. Though crushed by this realization, he still finds that it is possible to have an adventurous, yet accomplished, future as an adult. As a teenager who's childhood is slowly slipping away from him, he must embark on a journey to find what life is really about. His favorite motto: "The meaning of life is to give life a meaning."
