Our Story

Larry went to college at the University of Illinois to become an aerospace engineer, but after learning that “the math was too hard”, Larry switched to civil engineering, focusing in soil mechanics where he studied under Dr. Ralf Peck, a world leader in geotechnical engineering.

Our company was founded by Larry M. Jacobs, PE in 1976 in Pensacola, Florida with Larry working out of a small office on Palafox Street. Since then, LMJ has grown to become the local go-to firm for geotechnical engineering and materials testing.
