George Jacobs was born August 27, 1946 in Washington D.C. to the late Rosa Hite Jacobs and the late William (Bill) Jacobs. The family later relocated to Rich Square, NC where he attended W.S. Creecy School where he graduated. He relocated to Paterson, New Jersey in 1964, where he met his soon to be wife, Ruth Sturdivant. He later enlisted in the Army where he served for two years during the Vietnam Era and earned an honorably discharge. He then returned home and married his loving wife Ruth Sturdivant on June 28, 1969.
