John George (J.G.) Jacob began working as an electrician for Best Electric in Peoria in the 20’s and through the Great Depression. In 1933, he decided to start his own business, Jacob Radio and Electric, in Morton. He would repair radios, do typical electrical work and marketed Delco batteries and electric wind plants to rural customers.
In the late 30’s, the company’s name changed to J.G. Jacob and Sons when his sons, Ray, Joe and Ken were old enough to work. During World War II, the sons were called off to duty, but each returned when their service had ended to carry on the family business.
