The Jacobs cabinet was the 9th cabinet of Sint Maarten. It was part of the executive branch of the Sint Maarten Government and was formed by members of the National Alliance and the United St. Maarten Party. It was followed by the second Jacobs cabinet installed after the 2020 snap general election.

The cabinet was formed following the collapse of the Second Marlin-Romeo cabinet in September 2019, when Franklin Meyers, faction leader of the United Democrats, left his party to become an independent member of parliament. On 22 September 2019, UD members of parliament, Luc Mercelina and Chanel Brownbill, followed suit.[1]

It was installed by Governor Eugene Holiday on 19 November 2019.[2]
