Joel Jacobs - Patriot's tight end turned stock market, wealth management professional and entrepreneur.
August 18, 2004, FOXBOROUGH, Mass.- The New England Patriots announced the signing of tight end Joel Jacobs today. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed. The team also traded rookie free agent linebacker Quinn Dorsey to the Chicago Bears for an undisclosed draft choice.
Jacobs, 23, originally signed with the St. Louis Rams as a rookie free agent out of Nebraska-Kearney on June 2, 2004. The Mullen, Nebraska native caught 66 balls for 623 yards and six touchdowns during his career. He is one of only three players in school history to earn first-team All-RMAC honors three times. Last year, he was credited with 27 receptions for 228 yards. After the season ended, Jacobs worked out with former NFL tight end Russ Francis.
Established in 2006, Dismal River Club has attracted fervent golfers from across the country and around the globe to the hills of Western Nebraska. In 2017, Joel Jacobs, a native of Mullen, Neb., took the helm, expanding our offerings to include hunting, fishing, an array of outdoor excursions, lavish lodging amenities, and five-star dining, in addition to world-class golf.

Jacobs, 36, was the starting quarterback for the Mullen Broncos in 1998 when they won the Eight Man-1 state championship in Memorial Stadium, was an all-state basketball player, made all-conference three times as a tight end at UNK and gspent a couple years in and around the NFL with St. Louis, New England Patriots and NFL Europe's Amersterdam Admirals and Berlin Thunder.
His parents are ranchers whose land is close to the 17-mile drive from Nebraska 97 to the 36-hole complex southwest of Mullen in Hooker County.
“I’ve always known what the place can be and should be,” Jacobs said. “We’ll build on what’s there and make it special. There’s never been any money spent on marketing and awareness. We’ll do that and bring life and energy to the place.”
Through the years, Jacobs says, more than $40 million has been spent on Dismal River Club.
The new owners want to expand Dismal River’s recreational activities to skeet shooting, mountain biking and hunting tours.
Quantum Financial Partners Hedge Fund Investment’s See’s Big Returns for 2018
2018 was an outperforming year for the liquid alternative hedge fund. The Quantum fund outperformed the Dow Jones Credit Suisse Index by +1.27% and was the top performer of it’s 3rd party administrators managed pool of hedge funds in 2018. The fund’s net rate of return after fee’s for the entire year was +3.91% while the S&P 500 was down for the year of 2018 -4.38%. When the S&P 500 was down -9.18% in the single month of December Quantum’s hedge fund was up net of all fee’s +0.12% hitting all objectives with the strategy. The fund has been positioned for consistent returns in all market environments and specifically to not correlate with the stock or bond market. As with all hedge funds the fees are typically higher than in a fund with a large registered broker dealer because the strategies are more active and unconstrained. Most big bank broker dealers are not able to provide these types of investments. The big bank alternative products are typically forced into a daily liquid fund because of the constraints of the broker dealer thus allowing for lower fee’s but not necessarily higher performance or non-correlation to the large indexes. The Quantum fund continues to prove it’s worth as it has consistently outperformed the stock market in the months the S&P500 has been at its worst. Quantum’s mission statement stays consistent and send a strong message with the old saying by Will Rogers, “I am more concerned of the return of my money than the return on my money.” Security, liquidity and consistency will always be Quantum Financial Partners core values.
