George was born in Waltham on April 8, 1948, a son of the late Mathew L. and Charlotte C. (Cody) Jacobs, and lived in Sudbury before moving with his family to Weston as a teen. He graduated from Weston High School in 1966 and after that trained in aircraft maintenance at East Coast Aero Tech.

During the Vietnam War George served for four years with the United States Navy as an aviation anti-submarine warfare operator. He had been a longtime member of the American Legion, most recently in Exeter, New Hampshire.

Until his retirement he worked for Camp, Dresser and McKee, an environmental engineering firm in Cambridge. A New Hampshire resident for the past five years, George had previously lived in Lincoln and in Waltham.

He leaves his son, James B. Jacobs (Natalie) of Raymond, New Hampshire; his grandson, Ryan DeVincent; and his brothers, Peter K. Jacobs (Frank Atkinson) of Southboro and Thomas M. Jacobs (Juleen LeBlanc) of Jefferson, New Hampshire.

George was also a brother of the late Steven W. Jacobs.
