I didn't know Holly had given the apartment tapes to Jacobs, but you're right. Here's a quote from the Heritage Auctions website:

Buddy handed over to Jacobs his one and only copy of the newly recorded acoustic songs. The Scotch Tape box had the songs and respective recorded dates in Buddy's handwriting, and gave them to Jacobs to review and to become familiar with while Buddy was gone on the Winter Dance Party Tour that ended so tragically. He planned on recording the tunes upon his return, with Jacobs producing.

But then I see this in the same Heritage link:

In December, 1958 Buddy Holly bought an Ampex tape recorder from famed producer Norman Petty to record rough takes of new songs he was writing. He wrote of the songs in a December 11, 1958 letter to his parents, commenting that "Peggy Sue Got Married" was his favorite. In another letter, dated December 14 to his friend Terry Noland in Lubbock, Buddy stated he was planning on having Jesse Stone, Ray Charles' arranger, do the the arrangements and that he would record at Pythian Temple in New York because "you can't beat the sound."
