Jacob Schick was an American who was born in Ottumwa, Iowa. He grew up in the southwestern USA. He showed a knack for management and a genius for invention at an early age. When he was 16, he was in charge of a railway line that ran from Los Corrillos, New Mexico to a coal mine his father had opened.
Schick enlisted in the 14th U.S. Infantry in 1898. He went to the Phillippines a few months later with the 1st Division 8th Army Corps. He was commissioned a 2nd Lieutenant and returned to the U.S., but went back to the Phillippines from 1903 to 1905 with the 8th Infantry. He returned to the U.S. at that time because of a severe attack of dysentery, and spent a year recovering. During this time, he was promoted to 1st Lieutenant.
