    We, Sean, Katherine, & Nora, are sad to hear of Jackie’s passing. She fought long and hard and she was an inspiration to myself and my family. Her care at the Inn was beyond superb. Her kindness immeasurable. It has been nearly 5 years since our last Memorial Day weekend trip to Savannah as we moved abroad to Japan. Jackie always had nice comments to us on Facebook about our overseas adventure. I wish I could have brought Nora to see her one more time, so Jackie could see how the little girl she let stay in the room upstairs as long as she wasn’t too loud, has grown up. Loving thoughts to Jackie’s family during this difficult time.

  2. Teresa and Mike Jacobson says:

    We are beyond sad. We have known Jackie since we started as innkeepers in Savannah in 2005. We shared laughter and tears. We started a group of women innkeepers, Savannah Inns, with our friend, Diane. We traipsed around town in our Pajamas for months inspiring other businesses to join us in our inaugural Savannah Pajama Shop Hop. Mike often handed us water to replace our wine glasses as we plotted on the front porch where our determination to impact the world of innkeeping and Savannah tourism would lead us.

    Jackie was unfailingly a steady friend, a heartwarming innkeeper, a proud mother and then a proud grandmother. She fought the bravest fight not once, not twice, but three times to beat back cancer. We will miss her heart.

    Our sincere condolences to Jackie’s family. We are deeply saddened to learn of her passing.

    Jackie’s graciousness, sensitivity, and humor made our wonderful times in Savannah even more beautiful in our memories. My late sister, Suzanne, and I spent our last vacation together at Zeigler House. Jackie had an artist’s eye. an angel’s heart, and a sweetly devilish sense of humor. Blessings on her soul.
