Jake is a junior at Grand Valley State University studying Finance and Marketing. He joined the Calder team in January 2021 as a financial analyst.
In addition to his passion for business, Jake loves to travel, particularly exploring the vast variety that the U.S. has to offer. An avid sports lover, Jake plays golf and pick-up basketball, and he’s a religious follower of Michigan Wolverines basketball and football. He’s also a believer in getting out of his comfort zone–getting “comfortable with being uncomfortable.” Jake thrives on pushing himself out of his regular environment and seeing what there is to learn.
When it comes to his future plans, Jake would like to work in investment banking in Grand Rapids, and eventually purchase and operate his own business.
