Todd Jacobson is a highly decorated Iraq War Veteran who is currently a student at Greendale Community College. He has a wife and two children, a girl named Ellie and a newborn baby girl. He is attending Greendale because of a promise he made to his deceased father that he would graduate college. When he became the lab partner of Pierce his easy going and accommodating nature clashed with the study group's over the top personalities. He is first introduced in the Season Three episode "Competitive Ecology". he makes a return later in the season in the episode "Basic Lupine Urology". He is portrayed by David Neher.
In the study group's third year at Greendale, they were randomly assigned lab partners for the class they were talking together at the time, Biology 101. Unwilling to work with strangers, they managed to convince the teacher, Professor Marshall Kane, into letting them pair off within the the study group. They then individually "broke up" with their assigned lab partners and Pierce's partner, Todd Jacobson, took no offense aware that he would rather be with his friends. However, Pierce found himself the odd man out after the rest of the group immediately paired off and was forced to keep Todd on as his partner. Todd was later coerced into helping a paranoid Pierce spy on the rest of the study group.
