Josh Jacobs Parents
Josh Jacobs’ parents are Marty and Lachelle Jacobs. Marty and Lachelle are no longer married. Josh and his four siblings grew up with their father after their divorce.
Josh Jacobs Father
50-year-old Marty Lee Jacobs was born on May 18, 1971, in Oklahoma. Mart and his ex-wife Lachelle had four children together; he also had a child Christopher from a previous relationship.
After he and Lachelle divorced, Marty got custody of his children, but things were far from easy, from bouncing from one hotel to another to living inside his car with his children, not sleeping, and having his gun handy.
“If it was just me, I’m cool; I can hang at a buddy’s house,” Marty said. “But some of my buddies did some things I didn’t want my kids around. I had to tell Josh, ‘We’re going to do some things.’ ”
“I understood what was going on, but I didn’t think it was as bad as it really was,” Josh said. “I guess I kind of normalized everything.”
“If I look back as a teenager, I would have never imagined this for my children,” Marty said. “But it could have been worse. I could have been one of those fathers that left. But I didn’t. I could have done some things that made it easier. But I can’t raise them behind a wall, you know what I’m saying?”
Marty Jacobs was able to get a house for him and the children when Josh reached high school. And Josh gifted his father with a house a year after signing with the Raiders.
“I remember seeing him not sleep,” Jacobs told NFL Network’s Jeffri Chadiha ahead of the draft about his father. “It’s crazy because I didn’t notice that I was sleeping in a car. I was just thinking that I was falling asleep and waking up. I didn’t think anything about it because I felt safe. He would just drive around until he found a place to sleep and then I’d get up the next day and go to school.”
