Mark A. Jacobson Memorial Scholarship (Accounting) (CBA)

Since 1996, the Jacobson Family has provided this annual memorial scholarship to a UW-L accounting student. Mark transferred to UW La Crosse his junior year and embraced the opportunities that the school and staff offered. He became very involved in the accounting club and worked closely with John Gardner in the VITA organization. He loved visiting the accounting firms and listening to speakers talk about the CPA exam. Mark gave 110% to his studies and involvement in the accounting groups, however school was never easy for him. He was never an “A” student and yes there were a couple of classes he had to take over. When Mark was diagnosed with terminal cancer, he wanted something good to come out of his death. He wanted to help other students who were struggling through school just like he did. Before his death, he created 2 perpetual scholarships, one at his high school and one at UW-La Crosse. Mark’s family hopes that the opportunities created by this scholarship encourage students to pursue their dreams and to be proud of their accomplishments no matter where life takes them.
