I still can’t believe you’re gone. I wish we had more time. I am so lucky I had you as my mom. You’ve taught me so much and I hope to keep making you proud. I admired your strength, courage, and kindness. I loved your sense of humor and your laugh. I will miss talking to you multiple times a day. You’re truly my hero and an inspiration. I know you’re finally at peace and that brings comfort to our family but we will forever miss you and try to live just like Jackie.
Love you

Today will be the hardest day trying to say goodbye to you - I knew this day would come but you beat back this cancer so many times I believed you to be indestructible. You have taught us all the true meaning of a “super woman” no matter how you would be feeling you were still helping others and working your tail off no matter how many times we asked you to slow down - you only had one speed, fast fowRd full speed ahead . You were blessed with a very loving and supportive family who adored you as you did them. You have touched so many lives. I am going to miss our conversations and I am going to miss you more than words can express. I will always cherish our friendship - rest now Jackie the fight is over.

Jackie -- you earned the respect and admiration of all who had the privilege of knowing you. You fought a hard battle, with determination, perseverance and strength and I thank you for showing us all how to live a full life no matter what the circumstances. Rest easy Jackie, you left us better by your presence

I don’t usually have anything special to say when these events happen and so don’t even write much, this is very different.
Through meeting many years ago amidst the madness of our careers, the raucous hysterics at vendor dinners ( you’d say; we gotta go , free food and wine) , quick meets for a bite and catch up. The deep, honest , terrifying little conversations about life and circumstance, we somehow squeezed in , each time we saw each other. And those same conversations that somehow always managed to include inappropriate quips and banter and ridiculous belly laughs .We would hysterically laugh because it was wrong but we were funny on the downlow. . Your strength, determination and Unwavering persistence always shown through each and every struggle life threw. You always left me feeling like , hell yea, you can get through anything. After all, look at you. You’re perseverance and unwillingness to allow your battle to impede you’re life was astonishing to all that knew you. You were brilliantly wise in your career knowledge and practice ,yet, street smart with a wicked edge.A caring, genuine, empathetic soul that would do anything she could for you, give you a boost, reinforce confidence or straight up call you out on bs when need be. You adored your husband, your eyes lit when talking of your kids and grandkids ( those we swore would kill us trying to keep up) You did it all , every bit, with grace, strength and determination and I adored you and was in awe of your entire presence from our first meet years ago and that just grew as our friendship. People who didn’t know you would ask who you were, and I had to reply “ that is JACKIE ADAMS, how do you not know of her? That woman is a LEGEND. if you’re ever lucky enough to be her friend and really get to know her, consider yourself to have been blessed as there will never be one of her again. I was one of the blessed to have been her friend and will cherish every single moment I spend with her. I prayed this day wouldn’t come though we knew better. I hurt for your family that will have to navigate the incomprehensible loss. I sit here and as sad as this is, somehow I feel peace in my heart in that , you, Jackie Adams, took every minute of your life , the good , the amazing, the barriers and the pain and you, my dear, made it your bitch,! You are Jackie Adams so who would expect any less. I’ll see you again and I’m sure you’ll be coolest lady there

Jackie, You have been a dear friend and our champion. We will miss you - your humor, your untouchable style and your unfaltering spirit. You have shown us what it is to love and be loved. And Jackie, you are so loved and will be so missed. Love Diana and Jimi Golden

Jackie, you have been a pillar of strength! I will be forever grateful for the Christmas Eve you insisted I come over to share with you and Neil and your family. I have seen you be such an inspiration to your family. May you Rest In Peace!!! My prayers to you and your family. Love Rose

You are my rock and my hero. I always told you if I had the same work ethic as you or toughness I'd be the luckiest person in the world. Reading all the comments and posts, I realize that you were everything I thought you were and more. I hope I can one day live up to your legacy. I know this isnt goodbye but it still hurts (worse than my broken foot you misdiagnosed) whoops! I will never stop hurting but knowing that you were so proud of me eases then pain. I'll take care of Squealy and Schwaubo. I learned from the best so I cant do too bad. I love you forever!

I will always remember you smiling at me as you walked down the hallway. Our paths always seem to cross. I will miss your beautiful smile, beaming eyes and your laughter.  My prayers are always with you and your family.

Rest In Peace Jackie!
Grant that as we grieve
We may hold her memory dear.
She is the bravest person I ever know.
She fought to the end...
She is gone now from this earth
But her memory will stay with all of us forever!

I think Jackie was the 1st person I did pranks with. We used to torment some of the house docs and we would literally fall on the ground laughing. I had the honor to work side by side with her even when she accidentally splashed me with body fluids. Then she became my attending and took very good care of me. Very thorough. When I asked why do I have to take these meds she simply stated “Because you’re f#<%%> old!” You were such a warrior and fought like no other. Rest In Peace dear friend.

You were my wife, the mother of our 2 awesome children, grammy to our 3 beautiful grand children, loving sister, and most important my best friend. I am so inspired by the way you lived and loved life and how it took a terminal cancer almost 9 years to finally take you. When you were diagnosed and given a year or two to live we decided not to run and hide but to enjoy each day like it was our last together. As we gathered through 8 last Christmas Days and countless other last good times I thought the cancer would never beat you. I realize now what a warrior you were and how much pain and suffering you went through each day just to keep this family together. I believe cancer didnt beat you but instead you move on to God to watch over us from higher up. I will always love you and look forward to the day when we can be together again. Love always. NEIL
