Jeanette Jacobs
1950 – January 1, 1982

Jeanette Jacobs is perhaps best remembered as a member of the ’60s girl group, the Cake.  Formed in 1966, the singing pop trio were fairly unique in that they generally performed songs they had written themselves.  The Cake released a handful of albums and singles before breaking up in 1968.  Jacobs then went on to tour with Dr. John and later, settled in England where she joined the short-lived Ginger Baker’s Air Force.  She was romantically linked to Jimi Hendrix, and later married Chris Wood of Traffic fame.  Jeanette Jacobs died on January 1, 1982.  She was 30 years old.

Thanks to Anne Bentley for the assist.
