Jacob Andrew Tinsley is a sim residing in Belladonna Cove. He is the son of Christina Holland and Adrian Tinsley, and the twin brother of Kevin Tinsley. He is also good friends with his cousin Eileen Tinsley
He is married to Kendra Aubrey
Jacob was born in Desiderata Valley to his parents Adrian Tinsley and Christina Holland, along with his twin brother, Kevin. Jacob was described as an intelligent kid although he was really shy. Jacob’s parents married a few months prior to his birth, although they had an unstable relationship. They fought constantly and subsequently divorced when Jacob and Kevin were around 7 years old.
Christina and Adrian continued to argue over custody of their two children. Jacob and his mother began to grow more distant. He also never pursued any relationships in high school, being too scared from his parents’ divorce to do so.
Jacob decided to attend Sim State University with his brother Kevin.
Jacob arrived at college with Kevin, and soon declared the physics major.
He reached out to his cousin, Eileen, for advice about college. This prompted the two to become close, almost like brother and sister.
His new friendship with Eileen also caused him to reexamine his views towards relationships; Auntie Bev and uncle George were still going strong. Eileen and her boyfriend were happy together, and were still good friends after they split. About halfway through sophomore year, Jacob took the hour-long cab ride to Académie Le Tour to visit Eileen. It was during that visit he met Kendra Aubrey. The two hit it off and soon began a long-distance relationship. Although this was new to him, he knew then that he found the woman of his dreams.
As his relationship with Kendra progressed, the two learned their lives were more intermingled than they first thought. She dated a man named Dalton Chandler, who just so happened to be Eileen’s ex as well. Kendra figured this, due to Jacob and Eileen having the same last name and a similar appearance. When junior year came, Jacob later found out that Dalton and Eileen got back together. While this made his relationship with Kendra slightly awkward at first, they continued seeing each other. Now that she was completely over Dalton, all the drama with her and Eileen was ancient history.
Things with Kendra were going well. They decided to take a vacation with Kevin and his girlfriend, Britney. During that vacation, Jacob and Kendra agreed they should move in together, despite it being a bit early. Jacob focused on school and soon made the Dean's List.
Second semester, Kendra transferred to Sim State University and rented a house with him. While their relationship took a seat so both of them could focus on their studies, it paid off. They both finished out junior year with an A, both having made the Dean's List.
To celebrate their high grades, Jacob and Kendra took a vacation to Three Lakes. During this vacation, Kendra proposed to Jacob, who accepted. Little did she know, Jacob revealed he had also been planning to propose. She beat him to it. He was surprised, Kendra was the only woman he'd been with, and he couldn't have imagined that someone would ask him to marry them. After accepting her proposal, Jacob made a resolution: he was gonna loose the weight.
During their senior year, Kendra got involved in witchcraft and the magical arts. Despite being a more science-oriented person, this piqued Jacob's interest.
Jacob graduated with a physics degree.
