David Cary Jacobson (born October 9, 1951)[1] is an American lawyer who is the former United States Ambassador to Canada.

A graduate of Johns Hopkins University and Georgetown University Law Center,[2] he spent much of his career working in the Chicago offices of Sonnenschein Nath & Rosenthal, a major international law firm. He became a fundraiser for Barack Obama's presidential campaign in 2008, and subsequently worked on Obama's presidential transition team in the Office of Presidential Personnel.[2]

Jacobson's appointment was confirmed by the United States Senate. His confirmation hearings began on August 5, 2009[3] and the final confirmation occurred September 23, 2009 by unanimous consent.[4] His credentials were accepted by Governor General Michaëlle Jean on October 2, 2009, and he took his post as ambassador.[5]

On May 21, 2013, Jacobson announced his departure from the Embassy after nearly four years as Ambassador to Canada, effective July 15. [6]
