Jacobson grew up on a farm north of Abilene and was active in 4-H and FFA. She graduated from Abilene High School, attended Manhattan Christian College for two years, then graduated from Kansas State University in May with a degree in agricultural education.
Jacobson did her student teaching at Hillsboro High School.
