Happy Birthday to my friend, xoxo, Barbara
You are always in our hearts. Thinking of you especially today.
Jackie, miss you lots!! Happy St. Paddys day, hope your having a green beer. xoxo Barbara
We miss you every day. Love you always.
I miss you. I still do. I will always remember your laugh. Not a day goes by that I don't think of you in some way.
I will never eat oysters rockefeller again. That treat is just for us. Someday we will have it again...I promise. Sorry you had to go so soon. I will see you when it's my time...
Another year-another birthday without you. We love and miss you always.
sincere, a kind sole, caring, full of life, loyal, honest, a kind and warm heart..... all ways to describe who this wonderful girl was to anyone who came in contact with her. Life cant be fair if someone like Jackie was taken away at her age. You will be missed and remembered by so many who knew you Jackie. i only hope there's a way for you to know this.
Jacqueline, you sound like a very fun person.It must have been very sad for your family to lose you.I am thinking of you and your family and hopefully they get through it.Your family will see you again one day.For you I have released a balloon a couple of weeks ago,also today I will plant a iris for you at my school.I hope your family gets through that hard time.
Was waiting all year for your picture to be in newsday, actually I went to retrieve it at 1am from the recycle bucket for some reason I felt I had to read it and sure enough, your picture and legacy was in there. I remember you from a small girl and how you enjoyed to talk to me in the police car. I think of you often, you always made me smile, except when I saw you smoking. Love randy damico
Thinking of you today and always Jackie....and when I do, it puts a smile on my face. Thank you! My prayers continue to go out to your family, and the 'infamous' 6..
I send my heartfelt prayers today for you, your Dad and, especially, all your loved ones... those still missing you "down here".
From your "West Point cousin" and (former) fellow 2WTC worker,
Jacqueline, on this 10th Anniversary, I am thinking of you and your family... our family... and I know you are with God who is loving you and keeping you in His loving embrace.
John Florio, Sr.
Jackie....I think of you often and remember the good times we had in CT. My prayers are with you and your family.
I think of you often and the last time we saw each other. (In CT) You ran to my car and threw my denim shirt in my car saying " here's your shirt *#@&%!!!! Lol. We always had fun hanging together! I miss you....
You are greatly missed. I hope you and your dad are having a good time up there. Things just aren't the same without you two.
I can't believe that ten years have passed. We love and miss you every day.
Thinking of you Jackie, always! I pray for strength and peace for your family as the years go by.

You were in our thoughts and hearts yesterday and always.'''Love and miss you."
Missed your birthday last week Jack! Always on my mind :)
My prayers and deepest, heartfelt condolences to the Donovan Family.
Jackie sounds like an amazing lady. My thoughts are with the Donovan family. I'm sorry for your loss.
You were in my thoughts today. You are a shinning star up in the Heavens making everyone down here on earth feel the warmth of your smile. Knowing that you are watching over us all.
Thinking of you today, Jackie as I often do while traveling around Malverne. The world lost such a great person when we lost you. You always made everyone feel so comfortable and always made me laugh. Rest in Peace, dear friend.
My dearest daughter Jackie,
So much has happened since that dreadful day you were taken from us, but one thing is for certain--you are always in my thoughts and forever in my heart.
Forever revving up our Harleys for a great person. Wish your family and friends PEACE!!
Jackster... Many days go by with you on my mind and even though I am no longer in the area, I will always remember you. You and I know we had something special between us and I will never break the promise. We had our issues, but we both know why. I don't usually do things like this, but somehow, I stumbled across this and realized it was meant for me to talk to you today. I've missed you for years and will until the day I see you again. I'll be back.
It was fun pretending we were
cousins. Always thinking of you
and miss you.
I just wanted to let you know how
much i miss you. There isn't a day that goes by that i don't think of
all the good times we had together.
As I cross-stitched your name on the memorial that I am doing for all of the victims, I prayed for you and your family. Please know that your death was not in vain. We will always remember. God Bless.
Jackie, I've been thinking of you a lot lately. You were one of the most amazing people I've ever met. I hope to are keeping my cousin Tommy out of trouble! I imagine you both up there balancing spoons on your noses! The visual always makes me smile. I keep reliving the last time I saw you at Jeremy's Ale House. I was so excited to have met up with you. I just wish we had the chance to do it again.
I worked with Jackie's sister in Malverne Bakery in the 80's. Whenever Jackie would come in to visit or I would see her around town she was pure joy and would light up a room. So funny, so sweet and so kind. Made everyone feel comfortable. What a loss to this world, but what a gain to heaven. Jackie you were a star that shown brightly in this world and now forever in the sky... God Bless the Donovan family. Your daughter & sister was pure joy to everyone she met.
Jacky, you were a becon of light, a smile when one so needed to see. You were my friend's girlfriend, and would bend my ear all night when he and I were not playing pool. We talked about a multitude of things, but as I remember, they centered on your loved ones,never you. Your legacy is one of richness and purity as you touched so many with your brillance of character, and mirth of life. I miss you. We as a whole, are lessened by your loss to us but....you do continue, in our thoughts and prayers what you were and are is acknoledged here in your loved ones writings......you are very loved!!!!!
As I write this, tears form in my eyes. Jackie was and always will be my cousin. You will always live in the memories I have of the many summers shared by our families.
Jackie was my cousin but we hadn't seen each other since we were kids hanging out during the summers in NY and NJ. I just want to tell my family back home that you're not alone. We all feel the pain and wish we could be together. We'll always love you Jackie. Rest in Peace.
On the Eve of the 2nd anniversary of 9-11 I think of the friends I made at KBW and Jackie was one of them. Jackie always had a smile on her face. My prayers are with her family.
JUST PASSING THROUGH I DIDNT KNOW YOU BUT FEEL BAD FOR YOU AND YOUR FAMILY NO ONE SHOULD EVER HAVE TO GO THROUGH WHAT YOUR FAMILY AND EVERY OTHER FAMILY IS GOING THROUGH DO TO THIS TRAGEDY. GOD BLESS ALL IN HEAVEN THAT MADE THE ULTIMATE SACRIFICE, AMEN TO ALL OF YOU.
The holidays will never have that complete feeling of joy. I know that you were in our thoughts and always in our hearts. We love and miss you.
Love you always,
Dear Jackie, I have heard so much about you. I worked with one of the infamous 6. She was also Jackie. She brought smiles to everyone in the office when she spoke of you and your antics. I felt that I had already known you. God must have needed you for a bigger purpose. Spread your beautiful wings and fly free now. Please know that I will pray for you and your family and friends. And Jackie, If you should see my grandma in heaven, please tell her how much I love her. God Bless you and your family. Love, Fran
I had met Jackie through a friend I grew up with .. we were aquaintances. Then many years later I met her again through another friend.. and it took a while but we figured out how we knew each other. Every time we saw each other after that we would say hi.. chit chat, laugh tell a joke. No matter what she always seemed to have a smile on her face. I am so lucky to have known Jackie.. and I thank Jackie C and Kelli K for introducing us.. not once but twice in a lifetime. My thoughts and prayers to her family.. I knew if I saw her I would feel comfortable wherever it may be.. She would make me feel welcome. I toast you Jackie D.... and you will be forever missed.
My heart goes out to the family of Jackie. She was a great person, got along with everyone, and made everyone laugh. Vegas hasn't been the same since you were there, hon! I miss your inquisitive personality, and great laugh. I think of you often...from the biker side, Kelli
I knew Jacky in High School. We weren't best friends but we knew each other and she always had a smile. She was the class clown and alot of fun. So sorry for your loss.
I met Jacky at a party honoring David Graifman's and Christine Huhn's marriage, in '99. Ironically, she and David, coworkers, were both lost a year ago. We had many beer's and many laugh's that night. I'll always remember Jacky's great smile and personality!!! Thanks Jacky.
Dear Family and Friends of Jaqueline Donovan:
Last Sunday, in preparation for the 11th, our church distributed name bands, like hospital i.d. tags, each with the name of someone who died on that traumatic day. I was fortunate to get Jaqueline's name, and have been wearing her with me since Sunday. I was watching on the 11th when her name was read on TV, and I saw her picture in the NY Times that morning.
My wife and I lost our youngest child, our son Jesse, two and a half years ago. He was a Peace Corps volunteer in Africa and was killed in an auto accident. Like Jaqueline, he was full of life and fun, and made a difference wherever he was, embracing people and the moment. We're still learning to live without him, which is like learning to breathe with one lung. It got better for us after the first anniversary, which we hope will now be true for all of you.
Becky and I will keep you in our thoughts and prayers as you remember Jaqueline and tell all those great stories about her and learn to love the way she is with you now. We send you our warm thoughts as you move into year two without her. Rick and Becky Thyne
Last evening, 9-11-02, myself, wife, family, & friends went to a local church to participate in a candle light vigil. At the church were 3048 small white crosses staked outside in the ground, representing all those lost on 9-11-01. All of us there at the church were asked to remove one or more crosses from the ground until none were left. We then held the crosses along with candles above our heads and observed a moment of silence in remembrance. One of the crosses I pulled from the ground had the name of, Jacqueline Donovan, on it. Although, I didn't know Jacqueline personally, I feel a special connection to her now. My thoughts & prayers go out to her family. If anyone who reads this knows Jacqueline's family & thinks they may like this cross, please contact me via email. GOD BLESS
To the Family and Friends of Jacky,
I never met Jacky, nor did I know her. Our company distributed remembrance pins with the name of a victim of the disaster on September 11. I received Jacky's name. We all wore the pins throughout the day in memory of the victims. I browsed this site and read all of the tributes that people have left for her. She sounds like a special person. My condolences and prayers are with you all.
Dear family and friends of Jackie;
I just wanted you to know that I will be wearing a heart with Jackie's name on it in the Raleigh North Carolina segment of the worldwide Rolling Requiem on September 11, 2002. All of the singers and musicians(There will be over 350 of them in Raleigh alone)will be wearing a paper heart with a name of a person who perished in the tradgedy of that day, over their heart. We will be giving hearts out to all of the specatators also. I wanted you to know that I browsed this memorial site for hours to look for the name of the one who I will remember tomorrow, and I was most attracted by the remembrances of Jacqueline. I especially like all of your descriptions of her fun-loving and generous nature. I will be praying for her and her family and friends today. God Bless You.
To Jackie's family,
I only met Jackie once, at our family barbeque. My stepbrother Greg and Jackie were dating and he brought her to meet everyone. She was so pretty and I could tell she was allot of fun. Her vivacious personality really came through, even in such a short meeting. I was horrified to learn that the world lost such a wonderful person on Sept.11. I was so saddened, and I think of her often. Please know that my prayers are with you all, I hope you're doing ok.
Sincerly, Elaine Allsopp

Didn't know Jackie but can tell she was alot of fun, just by the name and the smile:)
Even though you could not be here to celebrate your birthday, please know that you are in our thoughts and always in our hearts. We love and miss you.
Hugs and kisses from everyone.
I remember the first time I met you. I am pretty sure that it was at my brothers wedding, your brother-in-law. You looked so pretty in your sisters wedding party. I still have those pictures and will always remember your great personality, your funny ways, and your sweetness. You are missed terribly. I know that you are in heaven looking down at everyone.
To the family of Jackie, I am terribly sorry for your loss. I work with Jeanine at East School, my name is Bernadette, Your family is in my prayers, I didn;t know Jackie,but Iam sure she was as sweet as Jeanine.May God be with you all. Bernadette Ciccarello
Jackie had without a dought the prettiest smile of anyone i've ever met. I treasure the great times we had growing up together and all the laughs we had. A piece of this worlds sunshine left us on that horrable day. My deepest sympothy goes out to your family. God Bless
Since we met and had much fun at Brezy, there has not been a dull moment. You will never be forgotten. Everyone you touched will make sure of that. Rest in Peace.
We were in Maria Regina DHS together, (my cousin Karen and Jeannine were closest friends)we had lots of good times and laughs -- but we lost touch when i left MR before we graduated. Running in to here time to time at clubs and the mall alway brought back good memories. I know you are now up there with the Angels looking down and watching out for those you love makes me feel that your family is being well looked after. God Bless and you will be missed.
I WAS A POLICEMAN IN MALVERNE FROM 1978 TO 1999. I WATCHED JACQUELINE GROW UP . WE USED TO KID WITH EACH OTHER ABOUT HOW I ALWAYS LOOKED AFTER HER. SHE WAS MY FRIEND. I REMEMEBER HER WEARING HER CATHOLIC HIGH SCHOOL UNIFORM. WE TALKED MANY TIMES FOR MANY HOURS. I VISITED HER AT HER BAGEL SHOP A FEW TIMES. I REMEMBER VISITING HER AFTER SHE GOT HIT BY THE CAR ON FRANKLIN AVE. SHE STILL MANAGED TO MAKE ME LAUGH. SHE IS MY FRIEND, I THINK OF HER OFTEN. MY HEARTFELT SYMPATHIES TO THE DONOVAN FAMILY.
SINCERELY. SOMEDAY WE WILL MEET AGAIN RANDY DAMICO
I worked for Jackie a couple of years ago at the bagel shop. Her enthusiasm, her humor, her love for other people, all of her best qualities, she shared with everyone she met. She was contagious. My condolences to her friends and family.

Jacky's family -
She will never be forgotten. God bless you all. I will always think of her.
There's not a day that goes by without thinking of you. Our lives are so saddened.... Your beautiful smile always lit up any room that you entered. We love and miss you. You will forever be in our hearts, our thoughts and our prayers.
Your Loving Family
JACKIE WAS A GREAT PERSON. I WORKED WITH JACKIE FOR A BRIEF TIME AT KBW AND SHE WAS ALWAYS VERY UPBEAT AND HAPPY. MY PRAYERS GO OUT TO HER FAMILY AND FRIENDS
We will never forget you Jackie! Til we meet again.
I first met Jackie and her family in 1980. I lived about seven blocks away from the Donovan family in Malverne at that time. I lost touch with Jackie and her family in the late 80's, however in 1997, I was visiting in Malverne and saw Jackie. Actually she saw me first, she was driving a black mercedes. It was great to see her and catch up on our past and present lives. She was the same lively, funny, great-sense-of-humor person I knew back in 1980. We both promised to try to get together in the near future, however it never came to pass, much to my dismay. I'm sure Jackie could have taught me a thing or two, she always had something enlightening to say. My sincerest sympathies are with the Donovan family, and Jackie is always in my thoughts and prayers.
DEAR LORD SHINE YOUR LIGHT ON JACQUELINE DONOVAN AND MAY SHE REST
IN PEACE WITH GOD AND HIS ANGELS.
GOD BLESS HER FAMILY AND FRIENDS.
GOD BLESS AMERICA AND NEW YORK AND
MAY WE NEVER FORGET 9/11/01..AMEN
We see your sorrow-
and our hearts cry....
We can not erase your pain
but you do not have to face the anguish alone-for we-
-the American people-
are beside you.
We so desperately want to have the touch that brings you comfort,
the strength that gives you courage,
and the words to lighten your spirits.
And when we are left speechless
may the silence of our nation weave love into your hearts
to ease your sorrow.
May you find healing through our nation's strength as we-
-the American people-
face this difficult time together. Our hearts are with you. Teresa Jahn
I know from my son, Ben Saunders, that Jacky was a wonderful, caring friend. I extend my most heartfelt sympathy to Jacky's family.
I would like to extend my deepest sympathies to Jacky's family and friends. She was my ex-husbands secretary at Shearson Lehman Bros. (the beginning of her career on Wall Street)
For the few times I met Jackie I could see what a wonderful person she was. I know my dad appreciated all of her hard work, as did I. I kept her family in my prayers.
Jacky was a wonderful person. Always laughing and smiling. We laughed and laughed and laughed. She is deeply missed.
Jacky was the nicest, funniest, and most lively person I knew. She used to come down and talk with us at least once a week. I always looked forward to that. She will will be missed tremendously! My heart goes out to her family.
I was saddened to hear of the loss of Jackie. I worked with her for years at Prime Charter, she was always upbeat and happy! She was the person who always saw the positive in everything and was always ready with a smile. She was a lovely person. I am saddened by her loss and feel for her family. I was touched by her genuine good nature and feel lucky to have known her. I hope she is resting easy, she was a true friend to everyone she touched. My sincerest condolences to her family.
Jack, you will be sorely missed by many I'm sure. You were always able to put a smile on my face & I will always remember yours. Your quick wit & contagious smile will live on. I'll miss ya, Jack.....On behalf of myself & my family, I would like to extend my deepest sympathy to the family & relatives as it is difficult for me to fathom a loss so tragic as this. Love, Patrick
I just wanted to express my sympathy to Jacky's family and let you know that she was a truly warm and friendly person. I worked with her over 5 years ago and she was always one of the nicest people to be around. Everyone will miss her.
Jacquie worked with my late husband David Graifman. I met her on several social occasions. She was always had a big smile and many funny stories. She was a pleasure to be around and I convey my deepest regrets to the Donovan family.
Jacky (as she was known) was full of life. She was great partier, extremely friendly and very attractive. We will all miss her laughter and smile.
A great, wonderful person who got along with very diverse groups of people, from investment bankers to bikers. A loss to America.
