Jacob Gross

Student Engagement Officer | Great Lakes and Northeastern United States

Jacob is a native of Los Angeles and joined the ISEP team in September 2016. He is based in Chicago, where he is also a student at DePaul University, earning a doctorate of education with a focus in student affairs in higher education. Jacob received his bachelor's degree in Spanish from Northern Arizona University and went on to earn his master's in counseling psychology at The Chicago School of Professional Psychology. Jacob has been involved in travel and international education within the non-profit sector, including work with BBYO, UBELONG, Taglit-Birthright and JNF, to places such as France, England, Slovenia (a hidden gem), Belgium, Amsterdam, Italy, India, Israel and Mexico. In his free time, you can typically find Jacob sipping on cold brew at the local coffee bar, reading about ergonomics and fonts, or even seated in front of the TV catching the latest breaking news (which he then tweets about).
