I first met Jackob Andersen sometime in the early 2000s, introduced by a contractor partner, Tim Smith. He and I were in the final stages of our ownership (and redevelopment) of Eloy Industrial Park things were popping and everything was rosy.
The purpose of the introduction was to acquaint me with a new civil engineering firm that had been recently formed by Jackob and was looking for projects in the Casa Grande area.
Fast forward a couple of years: Eloy Industrial Park had sold, the Great Recession had begun, and I was off traveling, but Tim had taken his expertise in rail-served industrial development to Jackob, and along with his longtime partner Joe Jarvis, they bought the 160-acre farm which would shortly become Central Arizona Commerce Park. And the rest is history, I guess, as they say.
