Following is from the email sent to members from Club President, Tim Vertz, notifying of Dr. Jacob's passing. 
"It is with great sadness we let you know that one of our longest serving and honored Rotarians, Dr. Robert Jacobs, passed away peacefully [], Friday, February 15th. 
Dr. Jacobs has been a devoted member of the Thiensville-Mequon Rotary since 1958 and had 59 years of perfect attendance. Prior to his retirement, Dr. Jacobs spent his professional career as a podiatrist in Thiensville. 
Dr. Jacobs also served his life as the Rotary Chartered Organization Representative to help oversee our Cub Scout Pack 3852 and Boy Scout Troop 852 where he served in this capacity from the 1970’s until the recent past few years. 
Dr. Jacobs was certainly an avid traveler and he visited Rotary clubs all over the globe including Denmark, Jerusalem, Iceland, Norway, Sweden and Japan. 
Our heartfelt prayers go out to his wife Marilyn and his entire family. 
Services for Dr. Jacobs will be held on Monday, February 18th at 11am at Goodman Bensman Funeral Home which is located at 4750 North Santa Monica Boulevard in Whitefish Bay. His full obituary should be listed on their website [] ( 
On a personal note, Dr. Jacobs has been a wonderful mentor to me in my years in Rotary and helped prepare me to help mentor and advise our Cub Scout Pack 3852 and Boy Scout Troop 852 who we sponsor. 
We all are incredibly appreciative of a well-lived life of service that Dr. Robert Jacobs gave to his community."
