This week will be one residents of Hebron will remember.

This morning the Northwest Herald in its new tabloid format highlighted the Alden-Hebron School Board’s agreeing to buy a new 80-acre school site from former School Board member Daniel Walters, who is the father-in-law of School Board President Susan Walters.

Susan Walters told the NWH that she was out of the loop, that School Superintendent Debbie Ehlenburg handled negotiations.

Now a press release from the McHenry County Sheriff’s Department tells the story of the arrest of Hebron’s Mayor on

Hebron Village President Arrested on Drug Charges

John Jacobson

Officers from the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Division and the U.S. Marshal’s Service Great Lakes Regional Task Force Tuesday served criminal warrants on and took into custody the President of the Village of Hebron at his home.

The charges stemmed from an incident in the early hours of March 17 when MCSO Patrol officers were dispatched to the residence of John G. Jacobson in the 12300 block of Jacob Avenue for an assist to rescue in the absence of the Hebron Police Department, which was not on duty at the time.

A female friend of Jacobson, later identified as Jeanna Rosing (age 27 of Lake Geneva), had called 911 to report that Jacobson was not breathing and beginning to turn blue.

Hebron Fire Protection District arrived on scene and took over efforts to revive Jacobson while deputies began investigating what occurred.

Rescue transported Jacobson to Mercy Harvard Hospital, where he was treated and later released.

While speaking with Rosing, sheriff’s deputies noticed drugs and drug paraphernalia in plain view.

A search warrant was then completed by members of the Narcotics Division and later signed by a judge.

The MCSO executed the warrant later that same day.

A search of the residence revealed less than one gram of cocaine, two crack pipes, chore boy, a shotgun and some ammunition.

Rosing was later transported to the McHenry County Correctional Facility for three unrelated outstanding warrants against her for retail theft.

The Sheriff’s Office worked with the McHenry County States Attorney’s Office and multiple charges and warrants were approved for Jacobson.

On March 22, 2016, the Sheriff’s Office served Jacobson with the arrest warrants and took him into custody.

Jacobson was then transported to McHenry County Correctional Facility.

  1. another felonious politician!

    Let’s clean up the crapholes and corruption!

    This is sick!

  2. They elected a criminal so that is what they got.

    He was charged before and in trouble.

    Voters need to look at records of people.

  3. This piece of shit needs to go to jail!!!

    He’s been living a fairy tail.

    He better serve jail time.

    Putting innocent people behind bars.

    Scumbag! !!

  4. Great job Sheriff’s Dept.

    Great to see them working with the US Marshalls Office and State’s Attorney’s Office.

    Good to see that things are finally going the right way with the right people in office.

  5. This is the first time there is evidence of that famous word used here a number of times, Corruption!

  6. You people never seem to disappoint to make me laugh.

    Hubby and I get a good laugh from the comments so often!

    Fairy tail – LOL

  7. This guy has been getting away with this bull shit for years.

    Karma is a bitch, it eventually will catch up to you.

    Keep reading all the great articles on this loser!!!

    Minimum 4 to 16 years for the unregistered gun charge.

    Sounds like fun.

    I’m glad he made enough money with the lies so he can buy drugs for him aND his girlfriend! !!!

  8. Another WIN in the War On Drugs!

    A lot pinko, bleeding heart liberals said mass incarceration, spending billions of dollars and gutting our civil liberties would never work.


    No doubt in my mind that Drugs is hunkered down in a bunker somewhere and will soon accept unconditional surrender.

    But we could still lose this war.

    There’s a bunch of Obama-loving socialist, doctors, that say research and evidence clearly show that,

    “It is not that drug abusers lack moral principles or willpower and that they could stop using drugs simply by choosing to change their behavior. And in reality, drug addiction is a complex disease, and quitting takes more than good intentions or a strong will. In fact, because drugs change the brain in ways that foster compulsive drug abuse, quitting is difficult, even for those who are ready to do so.”

    Utter applesauce!

    We all know druggies use drugs because they are bad people who hate America and don’t love Jesus.

    Jacek Kopacz, I know you mean well, but let me explain..

    Jacobson is not a piece of excrement.

    Fecal matter can be used for fertilizer, but drug addicts are useless.

    And if jail worked, why would there still be so many so many people doing drug after prison?

    No the answer is the same one we need to stop terrorists; Torture, then death then go after their families!

    We should bomb Hebron until it glows.

  9. I’m amazed that a 68 year old crackhead mayor parties with a 27year old!

    So sick

  10. Before we bomb Hebron, can we at least save the IL HS basketball championship trophy they won there some years ago?

  11. Is this why the voters in Hebron township just passed a tax increase?


  12. Did the Alden Hebron School District 19 school board inform the taxpayers of the district about the approximate total cost, and approximate per property taxpayer cost, for the entire project, including the cost to acquire property and build a new school?

    Does the Alden Hebron School District 19 have money in the bank to purchase the 80 acres of land at the corner of Price Road & Kemman Road in Hebron, Illinois for $756,000; or do they have to finance all or some of the amount?

    Apparently no taxpayer watchdog for Alden Hebron School District 19.

    If there are any taxpayers in that school district concerned about property taxes they should probably talk to Susan from Woodstock about how the cost to build Woodstock North affected property taxpayers in the Woodstock District 200 school district.

    Kemman Road in Hebron becomes Queen Anne Road in Woodstock.


    Property taxpayer payments to retire debt for a particular bond referendum often result in lower early year payments, and greater latter year payments, because there is more room in latter years as existing bonds are retired.

    So it’s important to get the annual estimated principal and interest payments for the referendum bonds, as well as the overall principal and interest payments for all bonds (including existing bonds).

    The principal and interest bond payment schedule is known as the debt service schedule.

  14. This person is not a candidate for rehab folks. If you are 68 and a crackhead, a crackhead you will be…forever. Honestly…I know we are all wondering, the big question here…why did they revive him in the first place? Death is the best solution for this sorry piece of child loving trash. He even knew it and tried to get a head start on the job. You just had to bring him back, well done…

  15. I’m sorry but there is NO way this douche-bag should be allowed to keep his job. Drubs and weapons are both felonies. And it’s super creepy that a 68-yr. old druggie is hanging out with a 27-yr. old woman? My guess is she isn’t with him for his handsome face? Ick!

  16. Upon reading more info. on this loser’s previous DUI and drug possessions, shame on Hebron for electing this guy! He shouldn’t have even been allowed to be a candidate, let alone win! (Note to self: stay away from Hebron!)

  17. “We all know druggies use drugs because they are bad people who hate America and don’t love Jesus.”

    Ha! Are you THAT ignorant?

    Thats got to be the most hilarious and uneducated thing Ive heard in a long time.

    You should be going to jail, right along with him.
