Rob Weber was born and raised in Northern Ohio. He was blessed to have attended church-based schooling; where he developed and internalized a faith, moral, ethical, and devotion to service foundation; culminating in graduating from Walsh Jesuit High School. Rob was selected to attend and graduated from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point where he majored in Environmental Engineering. Upon graduating from West Point, he served on active duty in the Army for five additional years as an Armor (tanks) officer attaining the rank of Captain. Additionally, Rob earned a M.B.A. from the University of Louisville.
After leaving active military service, Rob came back home to Ohio to attend the Ohio State University Moritz College of Law. Upon graduating, he practiced law for 17 years working exclusively as a trial lawyer helping individual people in their times of need. He has extensive jury trial experience with over 40 trials and has handled numerous high stakes multi-million dollar catastrophic loss claims. Rob has dedicated his entire life to serving and helping other people: first through his leadership as an officer in the U.S. Army and then through his passionate advocacy for people in the legal system. For the last two years, Rob has followed his calling of serving a much larger Ohio-based community by devoting his full-time efforts in the arena of political leadership.
