I was so sorry to read about Jackie's death. It was my pleasure to have given Jackie and her girls tennis lessons. Jackie was always a joy to be around. She was always energetic, smiling and laughing. I can still hear Jackie's voice as she came onto the court! I trust that her daughters , grandchildren and great-grandchildren will carry on her legacy. My condolences especially to Hal. I cannot imagine life without Jackie...

When I think about Jackie, I think about the warm, always positive and perky tennis partner I had many years ago. She was so inclusive and accepting. She was one of my first tennis partners and always encouraged me even when I got on myself. I knew that Jackie was ill and she didn't have long but when I saw her obituary, my heart broke. We have lost such a lovely, fun and caring friend. My deepest condolences go out to you all. We have all been blessed to have known her. Gail

I have only known Jackie for the past 8 years but feel I have known her a lifetime. When I started playing tennis after moving to WA, I played with Jackie and other friends. I always felt so welcome by her. She was always positive in her responses to my complaining about my playing. I, as well as others, will miss her on the court....especially on Wednesdays!!! I will always remember the good things!!!
