He lived in Havana for another four years before moving back to Oakland around age eight. Before he was ten years old, he was already gaining great insights on life, travel, and culture as he moved from place to place. As a kid, Lucas enjoyed running around, being outdoors, and playing sports. As he grew, he was an active participant in many sports including water polo, basketball, and baseball. Baseball was always his all-time favorite. He would continue playing baseball throughout college until he was forced to stop due to injury. Lucas Jubb put in a lot of time and focus with baseball, earning him a scholarship to play in college. Baseball not only taught him important athletic and training skills, it also taught him valuable life skills and team dynamics he would go on to use in his professional career.
From 1996 to 2000, Lucas Jubb attended St. Mary’s College, earning his Bachelor’s degree in Psychology. Five years later in 2005, he completed his Master’s degree in Psychology. While completing his education, Lucas also studied language, becoming fluent in English, Spanish, and French.

With United Way, Lucas is largely involved in mentoring. He helps match local organization mentors to young people in the community and is also responsible for mentor training, mentor screenings, and follow ups.
Additionally, Lucas works with various universities in Texas and Maryland, implementing coaching programs designed to help keep undergraduates from dropping out. His main mission is to inspire and motivate kids to get excited about their lives, futures, and professional careers.
Outside of his professional life, Lucas Jubb still enjoys playing sports and staying active. He enjoys playing competitive slow pitch softball, attending tournaments and weekly games throughout the year. Playing softball allows Lucas to keep healthy and active while traveling and meeting new people. Softball is such a great sport, because it involves such a wide variety of skill sets from hitting, pitching, throwing catching, sprinting, diving, and more. It also involves a great deal of intense focus and hand-eye coordination, preparing for each pitch and understanding the best movements and plays once the ball is hit. Lucas has found great happiness and passion within sports. He often uses metaphors from sports in his professional work, teaching about teamwork, leadership, dedication, failure, success, and other valuable life lessons.
