He began Hospice work in 1985, and since then has been a Hospice Volunteer, Hospice Board member, trainer of Hospice staff and volunteers, and Hospice Chaplain. He served as Chaplain for Community Health Services Hospice, and Beacon Hospice.

For many years he was a grief counselor, focusing on the spiritual aspects of grief, and delivered grief and bereavement training workshops for agencies in Maine and New England. He was a senior staff member of the Elisabeth Kubler-Ross Center, and led residential Life, Death and Transition workshops nationally and overseas. "When I understood that people were bringing me their wounded and broken hearts and spirits, I decided to to study ministry." Jacob was ordained an Interfaith Minister October 28, 2000.

Chime is an interfaith wisdom school offering a two year program of study and service for students seeking to deepen their spiritual lives and become ordained as interfaith ministers. "The Chaplaincy Institute of Maine provides a mindful home for the exploration of self. We investigate not only the heart of wisdom, but how participating in that search together can inform and inspire our everyday lives."

Jacob is the author of Morning Blessing Letters and several articles on grief and spiritual care. He is a member of the Forge Institute, the New England Association of Interfaith Ministers, and the National Council of Hospice Professionals.
