About Woody Jacobs

Mayor Woody Jacobs was born and raised in Cullman County. His father, Woodrow, owned a small accounting firm and his mother, Dean, served as Cullman County Clerk for a number of years. After graduating from Cullman High School, he attended Cullman College at Sacred Heart, and then went on to earn an accounting degree from the University of Alabama.

Upon graduation from the University of Alabama, Woody returned to Cullman and joined his family business as an accountant, where he specialized in helping small businesses with tax preparation. After working eighteen years in the accounting field, Woody made a career change and joined building contractor Eidson & Associates, where he spent twenty years supervising commercial construction projects. He retired from Eidson & Associates in 2016.

Throughout his life, Woody has given back to the community he loves. He served as Cullman City Council President for eight years, from 2000-2008. He has also served as president of the local American Red Cross, president of the Cullman County Fair Association, treasurer of the Cullman Lions Club, and president of the Cullman Parks & Recreation Board. Currently, Woody serves as a deacon at Christ Covenant Presbyterian Church, board member of the Fixed Point Foundation, and coach for the Miracle League Braves.

Woody has been happily married to Connie (nee Voigt) Jacobs for almost 35 years and is the proud father of son Tyler and daughter Hannah.
