Jen Jacobs' Profile

About

Roberts + Gene is named in honor of owner Jen CK Jacobs parents, Philip Roberts Jacobs and Claudia Gene Case Jacobs, who fell fiercely in love in 1978.

Over the years, Jen has sailed the seas as a salty Sailor of the US Navy, designed her own line of jewelry, penned books, photographed food and lifestyle for some of the most notable titles on the newsstands and in 2012, fulfilled a lifetime dream with CISTHENE. With a cult-like following CISTHENE featured handmade jewelry from all over the world and a highly covetable collection of apothecary goods. Featured in VOGUE, Refinery29, Lucky Magazine, Time Magazine and countless others, Jen's eye for curation was lauded by customers and editors alike. But life had other plans... and love always wins. With the opening of Roberts + Gene, Jen weaves her magic once again... but this time into a tapestry of personal love and history.
