Dr. Irwin Jacobs, co-founder, chairman of QUALCOMM Incorporated (San-Diego, CA), and outstanding engineer, businessman and Jewish
philanthropist, together with his wife Joan are the major supporters of the Kishinev Jacobs Jewish Campus. Irwin and Joan Jacobs firstly visited Moldova in July 2002. Their journey was of great importance to the local Jewish Community. They acknowledged that they left feeling not only that "good work was being done," but also that the community was serious about its goal of becoming independent and self-supporting in the future.
Dr. Jacobs and his wife Joan came in September 2005 to open Campus named after their name as its major supporters - Kishinev Jacobs Jewish Campus. Their next visit was in May 2010 when they brought some of the family members and could admire the progress made by the KJJC in five years.
