Arik Jacobson is a strong proponent of downtown Sheridan. He and his wife, Jeriann, purchased both Java Moon and Over the Moon businesses and building in 2005. Even though they sold the businesses in 2011, they still own the building and admire the historic structures and energy of downtown.
“My enthusiasm for downtown is still there even though I don’t own a business on Main Street,” says Jacobson, a partner and advisor for Eliason Financial Associates, LLC. “I accepted the position on the DDA board because I don’t want to see downtown Sheridan become a thing of the past. I’d like to see the DDA build on what has been created downtown, yet come up with new, progressive ideas. I want to see our downtown become a very desirable place to move. I’d like to see DDA provide a push for downtown residential. ”
Jacobson explains his move from Omaha to the smaller community of Sheridan showed him the true sense of community. “Sheridan is unique in how it rallies around its community members. This is a wholesome community that I want to see thrive so our children can enjoy it when they are my age.”
