So sorry to hear the loss of Jackie and condolences to her family. I have some wonderful fond memories of the beginnings of SPN and times spent with Jackie. She was a force and without her SPN would not of gotten off the ground.

Jackie, you were my coach, my friend and my second mother. I'll cherish all the many hours that you and I sat and talked about baseball and life. You will be missed. Rest in Peace. God Bless!
