Googled: Charles M. Jacobs ’94, Ice man

Published: October 2005

Charlie Jacobs literally grew up on hockey—his father Jeremy has owned the Boston Bruins since 1974. After graduating from Boston College with a major in English, Jacobs began a career in hockey management with the Los Angeles Kings. He later directed a media services firm, but the family business called in 2003, and Jacobs returned to hockey and became the Bruins executive vice president.

Following several seasons of lackluster performance and a year of no play due to a labor dispute and a lockout by owners, Jacobs faces the challenge of rebuilding a franchise that in the late 1960s and early 1970s captured all of Boston’s imagination.
