The majority of his time was spent playing bit parts in teen films such as Pretty in Pink and Gleaming the Cube and episodes of sitcoms like Married… with Children and Roseanne, before retiring from acting in the early 1990s.
While working on Gleaming the Cube, Jacobs befriended a number of well known and highly influential skateboarders and artists.
