Jacob began his musical career as a boy chorister at St. Stephen the First Martyr Parish in Sacramento. After seven years of piano lessons, he earned a scholarship for twenty free organ lessons from the Sacramento AGO Chapter.  He began his organ studies under Mr. Rexphil Rallanka at the Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament in Sacramento during October of 2010. Jacob soon began improvising during Low Mass and later became the substitute organist at St. Stephen’s.

Jacob serves as organist at St. Stephen’s in Sacramento while coaching the other young organists there. Jacob also music directs various additional Masses around Sacramento for weddings, anniversaries and birthdays. He has now taught at two chant camps at St. Stephen’s these past two summers.
