Jake Heath— a sophomore engineer major, and a member of the Theta Chi Iota Mu Chapter here at the University of Missouri— is the September Brother of the Month for his outstanding actions exemplified inside and outside of the fraternity. Heath grew up in St. Charles, MO and has three siblings— ages 3, 5, and 7. In his off time, Heath enjoys playing golf with his buddies and spending time in the Lake of the Ozarks. As a member of the Army ROTC program here at Mizzou, Heath hopes to commission into the active army and is currently working toward a combat engineering position.
Heath is currently a member of the infantry, having previously completed nine weeks of Basic Training at Fort Benning in Georgia— where he earned the accolades of 2015 Honor Graduate and Top Shot with a perfect M4 assault rifle qualification score. This most recent summer, Heath again returned to Fort Benning for an additional nine weeks of AIT— Advanced Infantry Training. While at AIT, Heath was in charge of his platoon consisting of 31 men. In this position, Heath directed missions, staged attacks and set up defenses in the field. In similar fashion to his Basic Training accomplishments, Heath graduated from AIT as the Soldier of the Cycle and plans on continuing next summer at either Air Assault School or Airborne School— jumping out of either Blackhawks or C-130s, respectively.
Jake is a well-rounded individual with pride and ambition— and represents everything Theta Chi works to stand for as an honorable and respectable individual. Since joining Theta Chi in the spring of 2016, Jake has been a pleasure to have within the organization, a well deserving recipient of this recognition.
