His grandfather was among the 10-percent of Polish Jews to survive World War II, making his life a statistical improbability. This truth guides and motivates Jacobson to "live a life worthy of the Jewish lives lost for the crime of being a Jew, dedicated to supporting, strengthening, and protecting all who are attacked for the crime of being who they are."
He lives near Chicago with his wife Betsy, an ER Doctor, as well as with their son Noah Lincoln, and their dogs, who are named after great champions for justice, Eleanor Roosevelt and Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
