Considered a key part of the Commerce program, Jacobsen-Huse also teaches and coaches water polo at Pasadena High School.

According to the USA Water Polo association, Jacobsen-Huse broke ground in women’s water polo, establishing a women’s water polo team at Pasadena High School and then later at UC Santa Barbara. She won a national championship with the Merced Water Polo club and is currently active in the masters water polo circuit.
