We always enjoyed running into "Aunt Jackie" during our neighborhood walks. She was always kind to my 3 year old son. She let him "help" her walk Discus and because of her my son loves all dogs. Discus was his first doggie kiss. We will miss Jackie and always remember her fondly.

Hearing this news makes me very sad. Great teammate, classmate, competitor and person. When I was running at Fla. State, I always tried to make it over to the circle to see my friend throw. Usually very hard to root for Orange and Blue...but she made it easy!!! To the family and close friends, I am deeply sorry for your loss. The world is a little less bright without her shining in it. God Bless Jackie.

Jackie was my friend and teammate on the Track team at UF. We continued to be friends after I left. She was such a funny, friendly and dedicated person in everything she was involved with...people, school, career! She'll be missed by so many! I'm so regretful that life got in the way of our youthful fun! I miss you!

Jackie was my roommate my third year of law school when it was her first year, and we remained close friends over the years. I was very surprised and saddened upon learning of her death. She was a true friend. I will greatly miss her.

I was so very sorry to learn of Jackie's passing. The Gordons were wonderful Briar Creek Drive neighbors, and Jackie was a truly special and talented person. I will always remember her with the greatest respect and admiration and extend my very deepest sympathy to the Gordon family.

I only learned of Jackie's passing this evening (Jan 22). She was a kind, sweet, dear friend.

Our last "outing" together was when she invited me to escort her to the Virginia High School League Hall of Fame banquet in Oct '14. What a memorable evening for both of us.

I enjoyed many hour-long Saturday morning chats by phone with Jackie. We spoke about everything under the sun. Often our conversations were about our belief in God. She was a woman of strong faith. I know she is resting in Jesus' care.

My prayers are certainly with the family at this tender time of great and unexpected loss.

I will always be appreciative of the friendship she showed me and look forward to a reunion in heaven.

For now, "Farewell Jackie."

Jackie and her family were wonderful neighbors. Her achievements in athletics and academics were phenomenal. I am deeply saddened by her death. My warm regards and condolences to her brothers David and Garry.

Dave, Garry, and families -- let us remember the good times -- from Briar Creek Drive, WTW, UF -- Gainesville, Vienna & DC -- I am glad I got to spend time with Jackie. We enjoyed Gator games in Gville and at DC's Pour House and I was so looking forward to her April visit and UF's Blue Goose award. I know she was a sharp attorney, but she'll always be that rare & exceedingly talented Lady Gator!
