MELVILLE, N.Y. – Music has always been part of David Jacobson’s life. But the tragedy of 9/11 let the 43-year old president of indirect lending company GrooveCar use his talents in a way he never anticipated by inspiring him to write a song he performed in public on July 4, 2002 together with the Long Island Philharmonic Orchestra.
