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. The 1000th Health Pearl was broadcast in November of 2022, celebrating 26 years of health knowledge. 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 and brings this same passion and charisma to Gesundheit! Nutrition Center. He has been able to pass along his wealth of knowledge to his family and friends in the Bozeman community to help everyone live a healthy and happy life. Come visit Gesundheit! Nutrition Center and chat with Jacobus and you’ll be sure to learn something new!
