Jacob Meschke

Production Assistant, Stateside

Jacob Meschke is a Stateside news assistant and a rising senior at Northwestern University, where he studies journalism, Spanish and political science.

Jacob is from Williamston, Michigan, but graduated from Okemos High School in 2014. He therefore grew up, and still is, a diehard Spartan fan and Trojan arch nemesis. Jacob loves politics, the nerdier the better, and nature—a huge advocate of the Pure Michigan campaign—but his biggest passion lies in soccer, especially the sport’s growth across Michigan and the United States.

Previously, Jacob was a reporter covering national security for the Medill News Service in Washington and the managing editor of North by Northwestern, a politics and culture magazine. He’s also spent time living abroad in Spain and Bolivia.
