Introducing your new
Commodore: Maureen Jacobson
Maureen grew up in Closter, New Jersey and attended Endicott Jr.
College and New York University, where she majored in marketing and
then psychology. Since the age of 15, she wanted to live in NYC
which she ultimately did for many years. Maureen worked in personnel
and then after landing a lucky break, she began modeling, mainly for
magazines and catalogues. She met her first husband and moved back
to New Jersey where her son, Darren was born.
life changed, she decided to move to Boca Raton where her parents
had retired. At this point she started working for an executive
recruiting company. Another company was looking to expand so she and
her best friend at the time opened up an office for recruiting high
tech executives. Life was great but then got even better when she
was reacquainted with a family friend, Ben Jacobson. That was it for
the both of them and now 25 years later….
Maureen and Ben and her son boated many years and devoted a lot of
time to the Corinthians. Ben was Commodore from 1996-1997. They are
the FIRST COUPLE to be Commodores and are very proud of that fact!
have 11 grandchildren and love their families! Maureen’s grandson,
Darren David now lives in the area. Maureen spent many years raising
funds for a few favorite charities. She was President and Chairman
for HANDY, which helps abused children now in foster care. She also
was on the Boards of the Royal Dames of Cancer Research for breast
and prostate cancer and on PAWS- Pets Are Worth Saving. Maureen was
honored as Woman of the Year for Broward County in 1997 and also
Woman of Style and Substance in the same year.
Maureen is “sort of” putting her new business of selling High

best yacht club there is! She feels we all are very lucky people!
