Jacob Loose opened his first dry goods store in the 1870s. Twenty-five years later, he was baking mogul of Kansas City's enormous Loose-Wiles Biscuit Company. Cookies and soda crackers enabled Jacob and Ella Loose to live well. And they gave generously. The Loose's philanthropy is legendary, and their name evokes lovely Loose Park, an 80-acre area donated to the city in 1923 by Ella Loose in the memory of her husband.
