EXCLUSIVE: At age 56, Kathy Jacobs is a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model.
The Calabasas, Calif., pinup, who proudly stands at 5-foot-3 inches, is included in the 2020 issue available on newsstands. The cover features a trio of models — Olivia Culpo, Jasmine Sanders and Kate Bock, who each have individual covers.
