In 1864, Kelly’s great-great uncle, Cyrus Jacobs, helped build the Basque Hotel in Boise. According to local historian, Arthur Hart, Cyrus Jacobs was “an imaginative and progressive businessman and a leader in community enterprises.” Many years later, Kelly and Cathy Jo held their wedding reception at the Basque Hotel.

Kelly’s great-grandfather helped finance the Boise Children’s Home. The Children’s Home Society of Idaho was instituted in 1908 and its cornerstone was laid later that same year. The building is now on the National Register of Historic Places. Kelly feels the influence of these ancestors strongly, which fuels his desire to continue this legacy of giving back and assisting others.
