JACOBS

The School of Management's building bears the Jacobs family name, in honor of a $1 million gift provided in 1985. The building honors the late Louis Jacobs and his wife, the late Genevieve Bibby Jacobs. The couple had three sons: Jeremy M. Jacobs, chair and CEO of Delaware North Companies, is chair of the UB Council and chaired the UB Presidential Search Advisory Committee whose efforts led to the naming of John B. Simpson as UB's 14th president. The late Lawrence D. Jacobs, a world-renowned researcher in the treatment of multiple sclerosis, was professor and chair of the UB Department of Neurology at the time of his death in 2001. Max Jacobs, a successful stage actor who counts King Lear among his roles, is active in a wide range of community and cultural activities..
