Early life and education

Prior to holding public office, He served as Deputy Commissioner of Environment and Planning in the administration of Erie County Executive Joel Giambra.[4] Jacobs also worked at the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) under then-HUD Secretary Jack Kemp.[5]


Jacobs co-founded the BISON Scholarship Fund (Buffalo Inner-city Scholarship Opportunity Network) in 1995. The BISON Fund provides scholarships to City of Buffalo residents to attend private grade schools. In 2004, he was elected as an at-large member of the Buffalo Board of Education; he was re-elected in 2009.[6]

Jacobs serves on the Boards of Buffalo Place and the Freedom Station Coalition and was previously a board member at the Catholic Academy of West Buffalo and the Olmsted Parks Conservancy.[6]

Jacobs was appointed to as New York Secretary of State on April 19, 2006 by Governor George Pataki.[7] During his time as secretary of state, Jacobs took an active role in the development of the Niagara River Greenway, which is a new park being developed along the Niagara River.

In 2011, Jacobs was elected Erie County Clerk, and was re-elected to that post in 2014.[6]

New York Senate

In February 2006, Jacobs was the Republican nominee in a special election for the State Senate for a seat representing Buffalo and Niagara Falls. Jacobs was defeated by Democrat Marc Coppola.[8]

On November 8, 2016, Jacobs defeated Democrat Amber Small[9] to win the 60th District State Senate seat and become New York State Senator-elect for the Buffalo area. The district was formerly represented by Democrat Marc Panepinto, thus, Jacobs' election added a seat to the New York State Senate Republicans' overall majority.

Jacobs easily won reelection in 2018, despite Democrats claiming the majority in the Senate.[10]
