He received a formal education at the “Senator Reid Elementary School and Mennonite Educational Institute”, at the “Yale Secondary School” in Abbotsford, and, finally, at the “L A Matheson Secondary School”.

Jacob married his high school girlfriend in 2004, and their marriage lasted till the year 2009. The end of their relationship was due to the fact he cheated on his wife by having an affair with another girl. After the separation, Jacob started dating that same girl. But the reason behind the divorce with his wife was not due to just this girl entering Jacob’s life. He is known for having cheated many times on her ex-wife. The separation hasn’t been a big shock for the people close to the couple, since the majority of his acquaintances knew about his infidelity long before his spouse could realize. There isn’t too many information about his private life with his ex-wife, but a few sources indicate that his former spouse’s name was Tammy. The last name, however, it has never been revealed. The girl he cheated on Tammy with, was from Winnipeg, but even her name is not mentioned in any news.

He got married to Tammy when he was very young, and it has been too hard for him to behave as a loyal husband, as his fame elevated. Some fonts say that in 2013, he cast a bunch of girls to spend the day with the purpose of “taking advantage” of them. Other rumors say that he also had a relationship with a 19-year-old girl, but he never contacted her again. He was also rumored to have had a secret relationship with Keswick, a 16-year-old girl in late 2000. Jacob has a very long list of romantic relationships: he’s always been seen with a different woman year after year, and he’s been able to keep those women in the anonymity, since none of the reports have their second name mentioned.

Jacob is an expert in combining singing and theatrics, and those skills allowed him to acquire the somehow prestigious nickname of the "Freddie Mercury of Canadian nationality with piercing and tattoos". (For who is very young, Freddie Mercury was a legendary British singer, and lead of the band Queen). As Jacob grew older, he turned out as a mature singer, and he realized that his past crazy deeds are well-suited only for someone of very young age. He has mentioned in one of the interviews that “Adaptability, for me, is a fundamental key to survival, whether it's pushing myself musically or cultivating the effort to dig deep for inspiration”. For sure he is someone who believes in keeping growing.
