Ruth Jacobs was my Sociology professor at Boston University. She made me feel so special when she asked me to critique her class after reading one of my writing assignments. She belived in me. This has stayed with me all these years.
I know she impacted many more. God bless the Jacobs family and know that Ruth Jacobs legacy lives on. She is in my heart.

September 30,2013,
when we were Ph.d studebts at Brandeis, two "older women" defying the stereotype of women of a certain age,Our renowned Professor, Everett Hughes, could never tell if I was Fran or Ruth, and if Ruth was Fran. Ruth wrote a poem about this, one of her many insightful poems about life, women,and history.I have kept, in a large box, all the letters, articles, poems that this creative woman wrote throughout her life. We were close friends for over 40 years, making sure to connect with phone calls, never, later through email, because Ruth wouldn't use this new instrument. Instead was her voice,on the phone,(never past 7 p.m.) and visits where we continued to share ideas and experiences.I will miss her forever.

In the 1970's, I was a teaching fellow at Boston University in Sociology and was inspired by Ruth Jacobs. She served as a model of compassionate strength for me.So know that her spirit continues to live on in those she touched.

Dear Ruth, You have given so much to so many people, inspired and led and loved. You had a wonderful heart and accomplished so much good. We will miss you greatly in our Wayland Poetry Group where your poems and your comments, your mere presence, were so helpful and inspiring.
