Jimmy’s Pizza: The End of an Era

Amidst rumors of a possible sale, as of January 30, 2023, Jimmy’s Pizza in Silver Bay remains under the ownership of the Roger Jacobson family, according to Jacobson’s daughter, Alexis Jacobson.

Roger Jacobson owned and operated Jimmy’s Pizza for seventeen years, until his tragic passing in December 2021 from cancer, seven months after his first diagnosis. Alexis Jacobson says, “He worked tirelessly to run his business during a time when staffing shortages are in abundance.” After his passing, Jimmy’s Pizza was left to his family. In September 2022, it was determined that the doors would close.

The building was listed for sale, and remains actively listed on multiple realtor sites. At this time, it remains under the ownership of the Jacobson family.

In the case of the building finalizing a sale, the seller is unable to share the identity and purpose of the purchaser. My condolences to the Jacobson family during this time. I have fond memories of Jimmy’s Pizza from my childhood – delicious calzones, chicken alfredo pizza, using the little white plastic stands in the pizza boxes for dollhouse furniture, and my fascination with the little railing running as trim along the ceiling.

Hello! My name is Haley Searls. I’ve loved writing from an early age, though my nonfiction writing at five years old consisted mainly of weather and gardening reports. I still have some of those early articles: “It’s sunny.” “It’s still sunny.” “It’s raining.” I’m glad to say my writing has improved since then. I wrote a guest post for the Silver Bay Public Library blog, and was the writer/editor of the newsletter for my American Heritage Girls troop. I have been writing for the North Shore Journal since June 2022. Besides writing, I love reading, drawing, photography, music, and spending time with family and friends. Two books that have really influenced my writing are Reforming Journalism by Marvin Olasky and Writer to Writer by Bodie and Brock Thoene. As a journalist, I want to share positive community interactions and inspire people to make lasting connections. Article topics that interest me are ones which show community activities and involvement. Such articles include community events, youth accomplishments, library programming, small businesses, local history, local artists and authors, art programs, and cultural events such as theater and dance. If you have an article idea, email the North Shore Journal with my name in the subject line! I look forward to hearing from you!
