Jacobus became interested in health, healing, and nutrition when he was 19 years old, but it was not until he got a job at a Bozeman health foods store in January 1994 (when he was 34) that the interest turned into a passion. In 1996 he started writing weekly radio ads called Health Pearls. Currently more than 930 have been broadcast. In July 2000 he also started a weekly 3-hour health talk radio show, called Gesundheit! With Jacobus which he continued until September 2019. He mostly interviewed local and national experts in health, healing, and healthy lifestyles about topics related to body, mind, and spirit. Other times, he would do solo shows in order to highlight newsworthy topics and research.
Jacobus enjoys connecting with people and explaining often complicated health topics in a way that makes them more understandable and practical.
