Kappa Alumni of Sigma Phi Delta, Inc.

My name is Rodney Jacobs and I attended Tri-State University from 1985 – 1990.  I played baseball on scholarship and joined the TSU cheerleading squad upon arrival.  At that time there were several Sigma Phi Delta men on the squad, all for the same reason I joined (to meet the few, nice looking women in attendance).  Due mostly from these associations, I pledged SPD sometime during the 1986/87 year and carried the nickname “Scooby”.  I’ve found that, in the Sigma Phi Delta circle, that nickname still applies.  By graduation, I held most of the offices in the house including Chief Engineer.  I left Tri-State earning an Associate degree in Manufacturing Technology and a Bachelor of Science degree in Technical Management.  In 1991 I married my college sweetheart, fellow cheerleader (see, it paid off!), and SPD little sister Patty Veasey.  We settled, and continue to live, in Northeastern Indiana which allowed us to maintain contact with the active Fraternity for a few years before drifting away toward life’s other “distractions”.  Patty and I are still married after almost 22 years.  She teaches 5th grade in the Huntington County Community School Corporation.  We were blessed with three sons: Joseph (19), Daniel (17), and Gabriel (15).  Joe attends Trine University and is a Sigma Phi Delta Active member.  Dan and Gabe attend Huntington North H.S.

I continued my education and in 2010 earned an MBA from Indiana Wesleyan University.  I have spent almost my entire career in the Quality or Mission Assurance field, contributing in the automotive and aerospace markets most recently at BAE Systems and ITT Exelis Geospatial Systems as a Quality Engineer.  My current hobbies include hunting and shooting sports, R/C aircraft, and tinkering with motorcycles/iPods/various mechanical and electrical items in order to bring them back to useful existence.

I realized recently, in the last year, that Joe’s attendance at Trine University and his interest and eventual active membership in Sigma Phi Delta provided an opportunity to once again become engaged with SPD, this time with the Alumni Fraternity.   I am excited about my new, active role on Sigma Phi Delta Kappa Chapter’s Alumni Board of Directors.  My family and I currently live at 6295 W. Maple Grove Rd. in Huntington, IN 46750.  I can be reached by phone at home at 260-356-8026, by cell at 260-224-1995, and by phone at work at 260-451-6532.  I am often on business travel and can also be contacted via email.  My personal address is This email address is being protected from spambots.
