Jacob Guckenberger
Assistant Hall Director, Villa Maria Hall

Jacob is in his first year as the Assistant Hall Director in Villa Maria. As an Oregon native growing up in Eugene, Jacob spent much of his time enjoying the beauty of creation through hiking, skiing, and time outside with friends and family. The past three years Jacob has lived in Durham NC where he attended Duke Divinity School and received his Master’s in Theological Studies. While in North Carolina, Jacob met his wife Kelsey who has joined him in Portland to live with and serve the students at UP. Believing that the heart of God is one of hospitality, Jacob and Kelsey love cooking together and inviting people to join them in their home on the couch or around the dinner table.
