Jacob accredits his aging mother, Susan, for his involvement in local government. He remembers her running multiple school board and other local-level campaigns during his childhood. In most decisions made on the council, he often thinks how she would have voted or what she would have thought about the issue. Jacob knows the lifeline of Nampa is its small businesses. He knows the importance of limited government on those businesses and believes in fighting to keep traditional Idaho and Christian values in Nampa. Jacob is an Eagle Scout, current Sunday school teacher at his church, former Lions Club president and current member, and is also a member of the Nampa Elks.
Dr. Bower is happily married to his wife Rachel and together they have two boys - Wayne, 10, and Waylon, 8. You can usually find them playing sports together, fly fishing, and chasing upland birds with Honey, their German Shorthaired pup.
