Jacobs, whose estimated net worth is $1.6 billion, was one of the top five financial supporters of Obama’s reelection campaign in 2012. He stepped down as chairman of Qualcomm, the mobile chip maker, five years ago.

The $10,000-per-person fundraiser is set for May 8 and will benefit the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, according to an invitation obtained by The Associated Press.

Couples who donate $32,400, the legal maximum, will be invited to a VIP reception and photo opportunity.
