Herbert Jacobowitz


On Feb. 16, Herbert Jacobowitz passed away. Beloved husband of Barbara Esterman Jacobowitz, devoted father of Robin Small and Karen Gallo, and cherished grandfather of Zoe Elyse Gallo. Herb received his B.S. from Brooklyn College, his M.S. from the University of Maryland and his Ph.D. from MIT. As an atmospheric physicist at NOAA, Herb was a leader in the development of weather satellite experiments and in studies of climate change.

At retirement, he fulfilled his lifelong wish to teach mathematics as an adjunct professor at Montgomery College. His greatest joys were his adoring family and his wide circle of precious friends who appreciated his lovable and caring nature.
