Because of this, they had trouble getting up Gordon's Hill until , Cassie, and Kira came along and helped them up the hill. However, Jacob did not want to stop to uncouple Oliver, and this lead to Rosie and Oliver having an accident in Oliver Henry's Forest. Jacob later apologized for causing the accident .

Later, Jacob threw a surprise birthday party for Sierra
. After that, Jacob, Sierra, Kira, and Cassie were sent to work with  , Dailey , Dawson , and Damian at the David China Clay Pits. The quadruplets' constant arguing bothered Jacob.

Sodor and the Storm
While studying with

While there, he became friends with , Hong -Mei , and Yong Bao Ni Shurong . A few weeks later, Hong-Mei drove Jacob back home to Sodor. However, she broke down while they were passing through  Warsaw Goods Yard.

When he was younger, Jacob was a kind, quiet boy. He is smart and a bit nerdy, but was also very boyish and loved to get his hands dirty. He was also very friendly, dramatic, and stubborn. He would also get very angry when someone else would tell him he can't do something. He was not without insecurities, however, and often got himself down when he thought he couldn't do something. He also had a tendency to take on more things than he can handle, such as when he and
tried to do Sierra and Kira's work in addition to their own. He had also been shown to be very loyal. Contrarily, Jacob had also been shown to hold grudges against those who have wronged him, but usually forgave them in time, as was the case with Connor . He had also been shown to have a great interest in music and theatre.
In adulthood, Jacob was still kind, smart, loyal, friendly, dramatic, and stubborn. He was also still shown to have a great interest in music and theatre. Jacob has also been shown to have good leadership skills and has been shown to be a good authority figure. He also has been shown to be good with children, as he formed bonds with several members of the
Wellsworth High School Poetry Club, namely .
Jacob also has been shown to have trouble letting go of those he cares about, as was the case with Kevin.
Jacob is of average height and build. He has dark brown, medium length hair and teal eyes.
As a kid, Jacob always wore green. In the autumn and spring, he can usually be found wearing a green hoodie with blue jeans. In the summer, he can usually be found wearing a green t-shirt and blue shorts. In the winter, he can usually be found wearing a green coat with blue jeans.
As an adult, Jacob wears a dark green suit with a light green shirt and white bowtie.
Jacobacranmer, Jacob's creator, based the character on himself.
Jacob is the only character to have at least one main role in every season.
All three of Jacob's girlfriends (Emma, Mallory and Anna), have had double letters in their names.
Originally, Jacob was going to have social anxiety and depression. However, these were later cut out, as the writer thought it would make several episodes too sad and depressing.
However, it has been confirmed that these may be touched upon in Stories From Sodor:Future
