Jerry began singing at a very young age at every possible talent show, school function, and church service that he could find. He began penning his own songs at age 8. Through Jacobs' childhood and continuing through high school, he continued to find stages and audiences to perform his music for. "I was born to be up there on the stage," Jacobs explains. "There's no better feeling than entertaining a crowd, and I've craved that feeling for as long as I can remember." He soon became his own booking agent, manager, and producer. Throughout high school Jacobs was constantly selling homemade CD's out of his locker, booking shows every weekend with his band, and promoting his music. The day Jerry turned 18 he started planning out-of-town concerts for his pop/rock band and got a taste of music out on the road.
