Jacob Florance Minis (1852-1936) was a commission merchant and broker in Savannah, Georgia. For several years he was associated with his father, Abram Minis in the company A. Minis & Sons (Abram Minis, Isaac Minis, and Jacob Florance Minis). Around 1894, after the death of his father, he started his own firm, J.F. Minis & Co. with J. Cooper Harris, which ceased operation in approximately 1905. He was the last president of the Union Shipping Co. and vice-president of the Savannah Brewing Co. He served a term as a curator of the Georgia Historical Society and made donations of Minis memorabilia to the Society.
