Jakob Wissel came to the world on August 22nd, 1996. A native of Ocala, Florida, Wissel is amongst the first of his generation to live out the American dream, as he was born to German immigrants Ditmar Wissel and Linda Wissel. He owes much of his early life to them, as they raised him to be a proper young man who went after his dreams - especially in a highly different geographical location, which placed the pressure upon which he would thrive. Jakob has three half brothers, all of whom have had a significant amount of influence on Jakob. Having such a connected family has brought him a sense of purpose and responsibility to his community - especially during his upbringing. His parents would enroll him in the Boy Scouts program, where he would develop many skills, including camping and cooking outdoors.
