President and Founder
As founder and president of S.D. Professionals, Jacob Timmons leads the firm with 20 plus years experience and an unmatched energy that fosters creative excellence from his team. Jacob is always expanding his well-rounded skill set which includes strategic planning, marketing, branding, programming, design and data tracking.
When he’s not working nine to five, or more accurately five to nine, Jacob and his partner, Sam, take great joy in caring for the animals on their growing farm. Two Boston terriers, Ruby and Niecy, along with their guardian dog, Hillary, help the couple watch over the goats, chickens, quail, geese and peacocks.
