Izzy Valdez

Mr. Jacobs,
I thought your presentation was awesome. I really do enjoy listening to your stories. I have alot of questions. But my main one is how did you get through the planes and with the security with your knives. And when you went to any country did they have bare feet? What i liked about your presentation is when you took pictures. I think pictures can explain more and things like that. I would like to see more of your pictures.

Guy Whitman

Good afternoon Dean,

The Wondrous Journey presentation today was yet another exceptional learning opportunity for our student body at FMS. My fellow Social Studies teachers and I are eternally grateful for your willingness to share your life experiences with us each year. I especially enjoy listening to my students dream aloud immediately after your presentations and below were some of the most memorable statements I overheard today:
--That Dean guy is AWESOME! If he can grow up in Fremont and do all that then nothing will stop me now!
--It is so cool that people from all over the world are so alike. I always thought we were totally different.
--WOW! Now that is why we need to go to school. So we can have chances to do things like Dean did with his life.
--Mr. Jacobs ROCKS! He didn't let anything stop him. I especially liked the story of him seeing Mt. Everest in the clouds. How cool!

Thanks so much Dean (for sharing your life experiences with my students - and also for sharing your unique ability to recognize the eternal human spirit - something school curriculum cannot adequately demonstrate).

Take care!
Mr. Whitman

Nathan Eckhart

Dean Jacobs,
Your presentation was awesome! I will follow your steps as I'm still young and you're older. I feel that I'm very inspired of your possibilities of traveling around the world. I'm very pleased about your pictures!

Bertha Gomez:]

Dear Dean Jacobs,
Wow!! you very are amazing to hear. you have really accomplished things and have traveled quite alot. i want to thank you for coming and present many things I yet did not know. You have really inspired me to travel around the world because then I can see how wonderful the world is. I never knew that people are so kind and they treat you like you're are apart of their family. I have really enjoyed your presentation and i hope to hear from you very soon again. I would love to hear more about you're enjoyable adventures. once again thank you for coming we all appreciated it alot (Fremont Middle School)

Sam Hoshor

Dear Mr. Jacobs,
Thank you for coming to our school and giving that presentation. I thought it was interesting learning about other cultures and places. I also thought the pictures were really cool. I really thought it was cool seeing the souvenirs you brought from the other countries you went to.

Thanks again,
Sam Hoshor

kalli schroeder

I really enjoyed your presentation today. I was amazed by the way you got around these islands and also i was surprised how little money you were able to spend a day. My favorite part was when you were talking about the kindness of people in other countrys. It is true that the news only talks about the bad things in the world which is why most people do fear the world outside our own.

Thomas Long

Dear Mr. Jacobs,
Thank you for taking the time to come to our school. I think it would be really cool to travel all around the world and visit other countries. It would be fun to see how other people live. I think it would be hard to be away from family and friends for so long.

Thanks again,

Cesar Guzman Linares

Dean Jacobs,

I really felt like I was there taking the journy with you as you experence life in a new and fancanating way I really hope I can learn to live and enjoy life like you.

Thanks Again,

Shiloh Halladay

Dear Mr. Jacobs,

Thank you so much for presenting to our team. I really appreciated hearing what you had to say about the world and about your travels and journies. What really struck me in your presentation is that you told us so much about how other people live. You've inspired me to follow my dreams. If it weren't for you, I would've given up on my dreams thinking that it would never come true. Once again, thank you for presenting.

Dear Dean.

I love it when you show us all of those photos and talk about them. This was my third and yet I never get bored.Thank you for taking time from your schedule to talk with us.


Ashley Leedom

Dear Mr. Jacobs,

This was quite an experience. I really appreciate you coming in to talk with us. The part that shocked me the most is that you were able to make that money last so long! How were you able to do it? I know you said something about $10 a day, but to me that seems impossible!!! Maybe it's just because I like spending money. Oh well, Thank you again!!! Good luck on your travels!

Emma Pacheco

Mr. Jacobs, thank you for taking your time and telling us all about your trip. If this was your first one that was really amazing then I IMAGINE how your other ones are. I really do want to go around the world. Hopefully one day I will be doing this. One of many things that amazes me is photography that is one of the reasons I want to do this. I guess I was also curious about the relection in the camera too. I really want to see the Mystry Lane. The knife that you let me smell, wasn't all that bad.
Although I did see something little clumpy things one there. Well Thanks for coming and have a SAFE trip next time you go. (: -♥emmapacheco..

I also want to learn more about Egypt, and I thought it was so awsome that you got to lay in the sarcophagus. I'm jelous! =)(= =P

Emily Neill

I have always wanted to go to Russia and just see what it would be like. I really admire you for achiving your dreams and seeing the world.

Cortney Cooper

I liked the hole presentation. It made me want to be just like you when you grow up. After the presentation it made me think about what we can do for people in other countrys. I want to go around about the world and see amazing animals and places.

Juan C. Escobar

Dear Dean Jacobs,
My dream is to be a general biologist just like you. You inspire me every day of my life. I want to go out there and see before my eyes the world I wish to seek. I've wanted to be a biologist since the 4th grade. I really hope I see you again. I hope my dream comes true just like you.

I love your story about China i have always wanted to go there. i would love to travel the world and go to different places but if i am not able to i would love to go to at least China. I love to take photos so i want to be a photographer some day. You keep on traveling the world and take a bunch of photos.

Kylie Dahlhauser

SPIDER MONKEYS!!! I really enjoyed when you were talking about Africa: ONE BECAUSE I REALLY LOVE SPIDER MONKEYS AND OTHER ANIMALS. TWO BECAUSE YOU REALLY INPRESSED ME WITH YOUR PICTURES...When you explained where you went and what you saw, it really made me feel like i was there as well. When you started this presentation I thought it was going to be very boring, but as i was listening i realized you were trying to explain that if you have a dream, don't be afraid to go after it. You really inspired me to explore, and go for things and never give up!! Thanks for your inspiring speech!

Alishia Nordman

I was amazed with your stories of your jounries, i wish i could somthing like that but be a photographer. I never really thought a dream like that could be achieved until i saw and heard your presation. I really liked the part about how the people no matter what size, what color, what age, and how never let the fear stop you from playing the game.

Chaz Webb

I liked how when you said that walt disney could not recreate what you saw with all the animals on the horizen.


Thanks for the speech about all the places you have been.Now i believe that all my dreams can true. I liked when you told about the animals and generous people in different countries.Thanks for sharing your experiences with us.Thanks Shelby Kohnekamp

Autumn Vaccaro

You where amazing! i never thought that any dream could come true. I have a big dream and i thought it woudnt come true, but when you came, i can believe in myself and achieve it. It was very interesting to listen about all the places you whent to, the sights that you saw, the food that you ate, and the sounds that you heard. It would be cool to travel to the places you went to. Thanks for sharing your amazingly Spectacular experiences with us. Thanks again. you rock. -AUTUMN VACCARO 7C
