Jacobs Gets Extension
This week’s Foundation board meeting was the 112th for retiring CEO Jackie Jacobs, so the veteran leader was given a new job title — Executive Director Emeritus. Jacobs will continue serving the Foundation, dealing primarily with key Foundation donors and stakeholders. At some point, he will take a break to enjoy a special gift from the Foundation board – a trip to Israel. But before hopping on a plane, Jacobs quipped that he wants to check out if it’s a round trip or just a one way ticket.
