Chip Jacobs joined the Obernel team in 2016 through our merger with Foster, Jacobs & Johnson. Chip was a principal with FJJ (his family firm) for 25 years, gaining the trust and respect of the community, clients, and employees. Chip is active in the industry and community with a long history of leadership in numerous non-profits and boards. He is an active member of the American Society of Professional Engineers, the Consulting Engineers Council, the Construction Specifications Institute, and the National Fire Protection Association.
With a working history of over one thousand projects, Chip has a broad knowledge base to draw from when assisting clients in formulating solutions for their mechanical needs. He has a unique passion for this process and loves educating clients on available solutions so they can make informed decisions about their buildings.
When he is not “at the salt mines” as his father would say, he enjoys spending time with his family. They participate in outdoor activities, including downhill skiing, mountain biking, and boating.
