When his school day was finished and on Saturdays, young
Glenn Jacobsen would work with his father. Jacobsen senior worked at an
electric company and in a tree care business on a part-time basis. “As
a young lad, I grew up climbing trees and later cutting down trees,”
said Jacobsen. “It’s a tough business, and I get my work ethic from my
dad, who is a hard worker.” In addition to going to high school and
helping his father, Jacobsen was mowing lawns in the neighborhood. He
was 15 years old.
