Hi everyone! I'm Tyler Jacobs and I just joined the Marketing team here at Morey’s piers. I recently graduated from Rollins College in Winter Park, Florida and decided it was time to leave my home state and venture to wildwood in hopes of getting involved in an industry that has always fascinated me. Being from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, Disney World was a short three-hour drive away, making it an annual vacation spot for my family and I. From an early age I loved going on all kinds of rides, especially Roller Coasters (still do!), and was mesmerized by the shows, decorations, and detail put into every thing at these parks. So when I had the opportunity to join the Morey’s Piers team and be a part of this truly unique amusement experience that we don’t have where I’m from, I jumped at the chance. Though I graduated with a degree in economics and environmental studies, marketing seemed like the best place to learn the most about what goes on behind the scenes at the piers. I can’t tell you how excited I am to be here and to be working in such a fun and interesting environment. How many college graduates can look out of their office window at their first job and see a beautiful beach to the left and an amusement park to the right? Not very many!
My mom always talks about how she lived on the Jersey Shore every summer growing up and how after she graduated from college she went to Florida and never came back. She calls it the longest summer vacation ever. I’m hoping I get to do the complete opposite and beat her record-breaking summer vacation here in Wildwood. I promise I’ll keep the fist pumping and hair gel to a minimum!
