Jessica Jacobsen

Jacobson was born, raised and educated in Wisconsin—but when the opportunity came to work for Kraft Foods in Germany, she jumped on it. Working at the research and development center in Munich, Jacobsen manages a team of product developers for Philadelphia Cream Cheese. The dynamic nature of her job keeps it exciting, she says: “I could be participating in a flavor innovation brainstorming activity, creating new formulas in the pilot plant and testing production for other formulas in the factory—all in the same week.” An avid traveler, Jacobsen has been to all seven continents.
