Hospice Director Stepping Down
Hospice of Santa Barbara Executive Director Steve Jacobsen announced he will be stepping down from his position on 1/24 to begin the next chapter of his professional career. Jacobsen saw the number of people Hospice served each month increase from 280 to 700 in his five-and-a-half years at the helm. He implemented a Community Spiritual Care program, grief support in schools, and counseling services at nursing homes. Board President Jackie Marston said the board is deeply saddened by Jacobsen’s departure but also celebrates the “tremendous and significant contributions” he made.
