Jacob Niemeier, P.E.

(as of July 6th, 2018)

Jacob Niemeier grew up in North America's heartland and from a very young age his Catholic Christian faith has been very important to him. 

Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”
— Howard Thurman

He received his Bachelor of Science degree in Science in Agriculture & Biological Engineering from Purdue University. He majored in Environmental & Natural Resources Engineering and minored in Environmental & Ecological Engineering.

Jacob has a great passion for problem solving and adventure whether it is with water, the environment, travel, or people. While at Purdue, Jacob, also, recognized the needs and suffering of people in developing countries when he took mission trips to both Haiti and Africa which he credits as his inspiration for starting Vera Aqua Vera Vita.

After graduation in 2012 from Purdue, Jacob moved to Dallas, Texas, for a job with Stantec, Inc. working as a water resources public infrastructure consulting engineer. He is a Professional Engineer (P.E.) with over 6.5 years of design experience in both public and private projects focused on water, wastewater, and stormwater conveyance, distribution infrastructure design, and water & wastewater system modeling.

In June of 2017, Jacob officially founded Vera Aqua Vera Vita and since that time has taken the necessary steps to launch the organization, advance it's mission, and grow it's foundations.  In February of 2018, Jacob took a leap of faith to go on part-time at Stantec and pour more time and energy into Vera Aqua Vera Vita

Faith-wise, Jacob likes to serve the homeless, spend time in adoration of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist, avail himself to the sacraments of the Catholic Church as much as possible, and fellowship/socialize in community with his fellow young adult Catholic Christian friends.

Personally, in his free time, which is relatively limited these days, Jacob likes to keep up with superhero TV shows and movies, fish, hunt, hike, camp, play basketball, play board games, and basically play any type of sport or compete in just about anything.  He is, also, very passionate about craft beer and in his own words: "Beer = 95% Water | Water = Life | Beer = 95% Life!?!"

At his core... Jacob is a visionary. He is a big-picture guy. He is a problem-solver.  He is a facilitator.  He is missionary service oriented. He is fun-loving.  He is people-loving. He is a faithful, passionate Catholic. And ultimately, he is striving every day to... "Be who God created him to be so that he can set the world ablaze!" - St. Catherine of Siena
