John E. Jacobson 1947-2022

Attorney John E. Jacobson died Dec. 12.

John practiced law in Bismarck in both the public and private sector for many years before moving to the Twin Cities and later working for Thompson Reuters.

After completing high school in Devils Lake, ND, John graduated with his undergraduate degree and JD from UND. He eventually retired with his wife Marlene to South Carolina.
