Jacob Walker, Texas Auctioneer

Building on his commitment to family and community, Texas native Jacob Walker’s passion for service has brought results and success to several charitable organizations nationwide.
Jacob’s passion to serve and entertain his community started in his youth as a volunteer for religious organizations, local food banks, and the Boy Scouts of America. He redirected his passion to benefit fundraising after exceling as a professional auctioneer for Dallas’ Heritage Auctions, one of the world’s largest fine art and collectibles auction houses.
Outside of his commitment to his wife, Rebecca, and their two children, Jacob dedicates his free time coordinating and consulting with philanthropic organizations throughout the United States such as Taste of the NFL; Best Buddies International; Aidmatrix; North Texas Food Bank; Make-A-Wish; Children’s Medical; Dallas Challenge; The Bridge; AIDS Interfaith Network; Richardson Symphony League; C.H.E.F.; and P.E.S. in addition to a number of private and public intermediate school districts.
