Rebel In Action: Jeff Jacobs '97

Aug. 30, 2019

'97 Business Alumnus and Native Las Vegan, Jeff Jacobs

Las Vegas Native and a 1997 graduate of UNLV, Jeff Jacobs works hard behind-the-scenes to connect the university and the community. Jeff says that his time at UNLV was pivotal to both his personal and professional endeavors. A thirteen year veteran in finance management and oversight, this alumnus studied Business Administration with a specialization in Accounting. At the height of the 90s UNLV Runnin’ Rebel NCAA success, Jeff has fond memories of the men’s basketball games. But his love for UNLV men’s basketball started back in elementary school and continues to this day. He is a staunch supporter of UNLV with a special heart for Rebel Athletics. More specifically, Jeff was instrumental in the creation of the Rebellion student section in the Thomas & Mack Center.

Jeff has a vested interest in giving back to UNLV, specifically the Lee Business School to help ensure future generations of students have the same experience (or better) that he had. This is demonstrated through his current service on the school’s alumni board of directors and previously as a committee volunteer with the Alumni Association. Furthermore, Jeff is also active on the LIED Institute for Real Estate Advisory Committee.
