Tamara Kluger Jacobson was born in Montreal, Quebec, Canada on February 7, 1970 to Rubin Kluger and Jeannine Boyer Kluger.  At the age of two the family moved to Miami Beach, Florida where Ms. Jacobson attended public schools including Bay Harbour Elementary, Nautilus Junior High School and Miami Beach Senior High School.  During her time in High School, Ms. Jacobson participated in a court observer program where she was partnered with a district attorney from the Dade County District Attorney’s Office during the time that Janet Reno was the District Attorney. 

Ms. Jacobson is a proud alumni of the University of Alabama where she completed her Bachelor in Arts degree in Criminal Justice with a minor in English.  While in College, Ms. Jacobson was a member of the Sigma Delta Tau Sorority and eagerly participated with philanthropic work for battered women.

Upon completing her degree she proudly accepted a position as a Law Clerk to the Honorable Tucker L.

In 1994 Ms. Jacobson began working with Robert G. Harvey, Sr. immediately handling complex litigation.  She has participated in mass tort litigation and in obtaining very large trial verdicts, and appellate court arguments. 

In 2000 Ms. Jacobson was appointed by Governor Foster as a Commissioner to the Louisiana Human Rights Commission.  She served in that capacity through the administration of Governor Blanco and was then appointed as the Chair of that Commission by Governor Jindal.  She remains the chair of that Commission being nominated again by Governor Edwards. 

Ms. Jacobson has been a long time lay leader with the Jewish Federations of North America.  She was a proud member of the National Young Leadership Cabinet, the Greater New Orleans Jewish Federation Board, The Jewish Endowment Board and numerous committees for those organizations.  In 2009 Ms. Jacobson was selected to accept the Garon Young Leadership Award which was presented to her in Washington DC at the General Assembly for the United Jewish Communities.
