Our friendship started the first day of 7th grade, after Jackie moved in on Abbott Avenue, just a block away from me.  Although she was far more mature and sophisticated than I ever became, we found we had a lot to talk about. We walked to and from school together every day, and by 5:00 we were on the phone together with my mother yelling in the background,"You just saw her!  What more can you two have to say to each other?"  Jackie was so expressive, and uninhibited; her world was larger than mine. Jackie always had interesting friends from other schools.She knew about fashion, art, writing, music, dance,  and dating! Of course she got the lead in the class play, and did a wonderful Anne Frank. She wrote for the school newspaper and majored in art in college.  I was the maid-of-honor at her wedding, but politics got in the way of our friendship in the 1970's.  I was so self-righteous and dumb.  Luckily we reconnected in our fourties, and vacationed together in Aspen.

Jackie met Jack,her husband, in college, and they had a very happy marriage.  She started a very successful computer business in the mid-80's.  She fought cancer the last ten years of her life, and died before her 50th birthday. I miss her.

I too remember Jackie fondly though I didn't know her nearly as Jane did.  Having played Peter Van Daan, I'm in a good position to agree with Jane that Jackie was a stellar Anne Frank.  Jane was no slouch as Margot.  Jackie was a warm, kind person.  I'll miss her at the reunion.

My remembrances of Jackie for the most part, are in grade school. I think of  her

as a very kind person without an ounce of pretence.

If memory serves, she and I were in Brownies together. There was an occasion when

Jackie's dad took us both to a Men's club for lunch (dinner}? That was very special,

because I had never experienced anything like that before. I also remember her wonderful

brother Sheldon. They called him Shelley, and I felt so proud that he shared my name,

as no one I knew did. I think she took ballet lessons with me at Victor Stengel's dance

studio on Hennipen Ave. How excited we all were, as he had been a dancer in

the Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo. I ran into Jackies mom, several years ago at

Lund's (when visiting my mother). We recognized each other even after all

the years!

Jackie, I wish I had known you later in life, but thanks for the Memories!!!!

I remeber having a mad crush on Jackie, who was, of course, beyond my water, and her tormenting me with the chant, "you must have been a beautifly baby, but uoo, look at you now", as we left class in eleventh grade.  We ran into each other agan in our late twenties, shared coffee, converstaion, and a good freindship.  A lovely lady, who acheived much, and died far too young.
