Jacob  Hansen

This year’s Unsung Hero, Jacob Hansen, was nominated by Dance Marathon Advisor, Holly Miller. Jacob's responsibilities as the Multimedia Chair of Dance Marathon 27 increased tenfold due to COVID-19 but he exceeded those duties to help others. Holly Miller speaks highly of Jacob, saying, "Not only did he make all Dance Marathon’s usual multimedia, but he also helped piece together countless footage from the entire organization to give Dance Marathon’s virtual presence, and virtual events, just the spark they needed to really engage the community. Much of Jacob’s work was done behind the scenes, but his finished products were something that reached thousands of individuals."
