Jackie was an extraordinary person who cared deeply about her family and giving back to the community. She was known for her warm and welcoming smile, which touched the lives of everyone she met. Jackie had many talents, joys, and passions that she pursued throughout her life.

Jackie attended Great Neck South High School in Great Neck, NY. She later attended the University of Toledo and graduated from the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York, NY.

She began her professional journey in retailing at B. Altman’s. She later held positions such as Promotion Director at SKI Magazine, Marketing Director at Keystone Resort in Dillon, Colorado, and Promotion Manager at WOMC in Detroit.

Outside of her career, Jackie had a deep love for volunteering. For over 25 years, she dedicated her time as a Phobia and Anxiety Counselor affiliated with White Plains Hospital in White Plains, New York. She also volunteered at The Shelter of Abused Women & Children in Naples, Florida, and the Nantucket Basket Museum in Nantucket, Massachusetts.

Her presence will be deeply missed by her family and all those who knew her.

A Celebration of Life will be scheduled in the future in the New York area to honor Jackie’s remarkable life. In lieu of donations, the Kupper family suggests volunteering a few hours in your local community or with an organization that is meaningful to you, as this was something that Jackie held dear to her heart.

Jackie leaves a legacy of kindness, generosity, and love of family. Her memory will forever be cherished by those fortunate enough to have known her.
