While on a Caribbean voyage transport, he met Dan Hart, who immediately turned into Jacobson’s new sidekick. Hart was a genuine financial specialist who sold his shipping organization for a little fortune and was searching for new speculation valuable open doors. Jacobson provided the game tickets, and Hart utilized his public organization of coordinated factors contacts to appropriate them.
