Col. Jack Jacobs On Veterans Entrepreneurship At UTC

Col. Jack Jacobs
Congressional Medal of Honor Society
Col. Jack Jacobs

Jack Jacobs is a retired U.S. Army colonel who served in Vietnam.

He is a recipient of the Medal of Honor, this nation’s highest military award for valor.

A few days ago, Col. Jacobs came to Chattanooga.

He visited the Charles H. Coolidge National Medal of Honor Heritage Center - and our campus here at UTC, as part of this summer’s Veterans Entrepreneurship Program: a seven-day boot camp to help veterans become entrepreneurs, established ten years ago by the Gary W. Rollins College of Business.

Michael Andrews, Executive Video Producer here at UTC, spoke with Col. Jacobs.
