James F. Jacobs (1952 - September 3, 1994) was an American dancer and interior designer. He was a featured soloist with the Annabella Gonzalez Dance Theater from 1977 to 1982.

Jacobs, a native of Chambersburg, Pa., attended Shippensburg State University in Pennsylvania and the Fashion Institute of Technology and the Parsons School of Design in New York. He appeared with several modern-dance groups and was a featured soloist with the Annabella Gonzalez Dance Theater from 1977 to 1982. As a designer he worked for Karizma East Ltd., the Bratan Corporation and Christina Borg Interiors in New York and for the Egger Emporium in Eschenbach, Switzerland.

He died on September 3, 1994, at Cabrini Medical Center. He was 42 and lived in Manhattan. The cause was AIDS, said Annabella Gonzalez, a friend and choreographer with whom Mr. Jacobs danced.
