Jacob Dowell was born March 4, 1985 in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. The fifth round, 140th overall selection of the Chicago Blackhawks in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft, Dowell is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin.

A strong two-way player, Dowell joined the University of Wisconsin Badgers after training with the USA Hockey U-18 Development Program. He spent four seasons with the Badgers in which he continually improved his play and capped off his stint with a career-high 19 goals. After his time in Wisconsin, Dowell immediately joined the Norfolk Admirals and appeared in 9 regular season, and 6 playoff games. In 2007-08, Dowell split his time between Rockport and the Chicago Blackhawks, making his NHL debut with the club in a November 22, 2007 contest against the Calgary Flames.

Dowell would spend the majority of the next two seasons with the Rockford IceHogs of the American Hockey League, receiving only the occasional call-up to the Blackhawks.

2010-11 would be Dowell's first full season in the NHL. He appeared in 79 games for the Blackhawks, scoring six times and adding 15 assists.

In the summer of 2011, as an unrestricted free agent, Dowell signed with the Dallas Stars.
