11 for Jacob – The Beginning of A Movement

The answer to the question of what happened to Jacob Wetterling came in September of 2016. It was not the answer that we wanted. What happened to Jacob was and is completely unfair.

One spark that came out of that dark and grief filled time was a movement for the people of Minnesota and beyond to move forward in hope and positivity, living life in a way that honored Jacob with a focus on how he lived. That movement became known as #11forJacob.
