Jacobi Jevons was born in Liberty City in the winter of 1982 to loving parents Rhoda and Jorry. Jacobi had an easy childhood, and was afforded many opportunities thanks to his well-off family. Being an only child, Jacobi was often the center of attention, and was groomed from a young age to work alongside his Father as an attorney and business consultant. His mother, a Serbian immigrant, was a stay-at-home mother, and professional seamstress - the job afforded her the opportunity to stay at home and raise Jacobi while simultaneously providing extra income for the family.  Rhoda's large group of friends often helped her raise Jacobi, and he was never without a loving set of eyes and ears around him.

His Father, of French descent, worked as a tax attorney and business consultant for a large firm in Liberty City. Jorry had went to Law School with Patrick Ligner, who is now a powerful Liberty City attorney. The two had worked in law for over twenty years, and Jorry had worked his way up as a partner in the firm. Jacobi found himself thrust into the world of high-stakes and high-profile law, often carrying papers in a briefcase for his Father, and assisting with legal word processing. From a young age, Jacobi was very interested in the world of law and business, and he knew his end-game was to be an attorney himself.

Jacobi excelled in school and was enrolled into many advanced placement programs and extra-curriculars, including golf. Jacobi has taken many years of training from various professional golfers from all over the country. Due to his interest and drive in golf, Jacobi was chosen for a full-ride golf scholarship to attend Vespucci University in Liberty City. While there, he majored in Political Science and Business. His golf career excelled, and was considered one of the best junior golf prospects in Liberty City. After graduating with his Bachelors, Jacobi continued on to three years at Vespucci University's School of Law. After graduating, he passed the state bar with little trouble.

Jacobi wasted no time to join on at his Father's law firm in downtown Liberty City.  There, he helped his father with many compliance cases regarding large Liberty City businesses and their adherence with federal tax law.  Jacobi also assisted in business planning and decision-making.  He lived by a quote his Father told him often; "Work smart, not hard." --  He quickly made a name for himself as a dedicated lawman, and hard worker, with an exceptional knack at observation.  Jacobi decided to return to Vespucci University for an additional 4 years to obtain his LLM in taxation as well as a Master's of business administration.  While working for the law firm, Jacobi also dabbled in equity, buying portions of start-ups and mid-sized companies to help them expand and become profitable.  These investment opportunities have paid him back many times over, where he used to money to care for his ailing Mother.  

He worked with his Father and other partners at Ligner's law firm for many years, and as the years rolled by, he watched as his Father's mental health began to slide.  At first, it seemed minor, but as weeks grew to months, Jacobi's Father further slipped into the depths of dementia and Alzheimer's.  Unable to practice law, Jacobi's Father was forced to resign from the law firm, and to this day is in a deep state of depression, as his own mind prevents him from doing what he once loved. 

Jacobi has dedicated nearly all of his hard-earned money and his time to help his ailing parents.  His Mother has developed Parkinson's disease, and is unable to sew.  His Father is unable to keep the days of the week straight.  It has hurt Jacobi immensely to watch as his parents have faded from their previous glory, and the respect they showed him growing up he intends to repay as greatly as he can. 

Without his Father working at Ligner's law firm, the job just didn't feel the same anymore.  The halls he used to once walk with his Father now haunted him.  He had to leave.  He had to make a new start and keep his memories in his past.  With that, he resigned from Ligner's law firm and a high-paying position.  He drained his savings and checking accounts to move his parents into one of the most advanced elder-care facilities in the country.  The elder care facility is located across the nation in the state of San Andreas. 

 Now with his parents taken care of, he feels it's time to expand from his birthplace.  He's spent nothing but his entire life in Liberty City with little time to travel or really take in any other culture.  The high-stress East coast life has got to him over his 35 years.  Plenty of research has been done to look at the business climate of the Los Santos area, and Jacobi is very optimistic he'll be able to form new roots in the city.  He hopes to take the money he makes in Los Santos, and make the final years of his parent's life as comfortable as possible - and maybe enrich himself a little bit too along the way.

 Now with plane ticket in hand, Jacobi starts on the next chapter of his life.  Maybe something a little different from what he's used to.  Next stop; Los Santos.
