In real life, Dipper Scott’s name is Jacob Thompson and he comes from Charlotte, N.C. At 28 years old, he’s lived his entire life knowing he has a passion for singing. Focusing on pursuing his dreams of being a singer hasn’t always been the easiest for him since he also battles Crohn’s disease.
Crohn’s disease is an inflammatory bowel disease that causes the digestive tract to become inflamed.
It leads to weight loss, malnutrition, severe diarrhea, constant fatigue, and even unbearable abdominal pain in extreme cases. Pete Davidson is a famous celeb who’s also admitted he battles Crohn’s disease.
Jacob knows he deals with some unfortunate limitations in life due to the pain he experiences from Crohn’s disease but his alter ego, Dipper Scott, doesn’t have any limitations at all.
