As the founder and President of Jacob Custom Homes, Jeff Jacob was born and raised in Colorado. Along with his wife and two children.

Jeff’s comes from a long line of Carpenters, whereas his ancestors have been building homes for centuries. Dating back as early as 1813, Jeff’s Great-Great Grandfather François Jacob began building homes in his home country of France. Later in life Jeff’s Great-Great Grandfather migrated to New Orleans, Louisiana to build homes.

Today, the Jacob family is still celebrated for François’ exquisite homes displaying distinctive arched windows and doorways on the corner of Royal Street and Toulouse Street located in the French Quarter of New Orleans, Louisiana.
