The Michael S. Jacobs Foundation was founded in early 2005 after the unexpected death of Slammers Baseball, co-owner, Mike Jacobs on July 22, 2004.
Everyone who knew “Jake” as he was often called used to describe him as “bigger than life.” Everything about his presence was BIG—his personality, his generosity, his grand entrance into rooms, his embracing bear hugs and his contagious laughter.
Mike’s greatest passion was his family. He adored his wife, Galynn and their three children, Jordyn, AJ, and Taylor. He also enjoyed golf, baseball and poker.
To honor Mike’s life, Slammers Baseball and his family decided to establish the Michael S. Jacobs Foundation. The primary mission of the foundation is to provide collegiate scholarships to baseball and golf athletes with a strong academic background.
In order to fund this objective, the Michael S. Jacobs Foundation has teamed up with Slammers Baseball, Meningioma Mommas, Tehama/Izod to co-sponsor the yearly “Michael S. Jacobs Memorial Golf Tournament.”
The Michael S. Jacobs Foundation is a 501(c) (3) not-for-profit organization. We do not receive any financial assistance from state or federal agencies. We are dependent on charitable donations from individuals, corporations and foundations to provide the funds for our scholarship program. Your donation is tax deductible.
