“Jackie was among the first people we called when we sent reporters to Watertown the night police chased the bombing suspects there. She was a tireless reporter that night, and tireless on many other stories before and since.
She covered communities west of Boston for us, turning up stories ranging from the serious (digging up details of bonuses and pensions for a police chief accused of assaulting his wife), to the light-hearted (coverage of Olympian Aly Raisman of Needham) to the hilarious (a nude statue on the Wellesley College campus). She contributed much to both our print and online efforts.
Through it all, Jackie was accurate, aggressive and pleasant to work with, and always ready to make another call to make the story better.”
