Forensic testing will be conducted to make a conclusive link, which could take several weeks.
Pennsylvania State Police say the 37-year-old mother of two from Williamsport disappeared from her home in Lycoming County in 2003.
She had not been seen since.
State troopers made the gruesome discovery on Monday at the Frankford and Westmoreland Avenues facility.
Investigators say a tip earlier this week revived the cold case that had long been dormant.
A manager at the storage warehouse declined to comment Tuesday morning.
A man identified by police as Jade Babcock is now being held on an abuse of corpse charge. Investigators have not revealed the extent of his involvement but said he is Jacobs’ ex-boyfriend.
