Jacob Kupferberg's foremost accomplishment with Rutgers Esports was establishing the tradition of us actually having money and equipment to run events. He helped bankroll Esports for the larger part of its existence, when funds were not guaranteed. On the production side, Jacob did some minor streaming for various events, was the cinematographer and videographer for The Scarlet Classic II. Additionally, he came up with the name for the premiere fall event "The Fireside Open" and ordered/managed the inventory of Rutgers Esports apparel. An eccentric man, Jacob asked us to include the following accomplishments, and to preserve his personality we decided not to edit them.

Jacob's accomplishments in his own words:
