Jordan Jacobo is an American actor, screenwriter and film director.

Early life

Jacobo was raised in San Diego, California.[1]


In 2017, Jacobo created Jordan Loves on KPBS, a series that covers areas throughout San Diego such as the Coronado Bridge. He had previously made the web series Jordan Hates and wanted to create a show that expressed his cheerful side.[1] In 2018, Jacobo adapted a story from postal carrier Ryan Bradford into a short film called 92115.[2]

Jacobo wrote a series called Sides in 2021, based on sitcoms from the 1980s and 1990s, that screened at the San Diego Latino Film Festival.[3] In 2023, filmmaker Devin Scott directed the film Long Live Xander the Great, which was loosely based on Jacobo's childhood, and with Jacobo cast as the narrator.[4]
