Satchell, Jacqueline Rosemarie
Jacqueline Rosemarie Satchell, 51, affectionately known as "Dr. Jackie" or "Jackie" of New Haven, Connecticut was born in Victoria Jubilee Hospital on the Island of Kingston, Jamaica, West Indies on October 19, 1968. Jackie departed this life on Wednesday, October 7, 2020. At six years old Jackie set out to be a physician. She immigrated to Connecticut from Kingston, Jamaica at 17 years old. She attended James Hillhouse High School for one year. After high school, she attended the University of Connecticut and graduated in 1990 with a bachelor of science degree with Honors in Chemistry. She attended Temple University School of Medicine in Philadelphia where she earned her doctorate of medicine degree in May of 1995. After graduation, she attended a three-year Internal Medicine Primary Care Residency at Yale University School of Medicine. During residency, Jackie participated in a one-month externship in Anchorage, Alaska, and a two-month externship in Harare, Zimbabwe. After residency, Jackie briefly worked in private practice as an internal medicine physician. She then worked at the Veteran's Affairs (VA) Hospital Connecticut Healthcare System in West Haven until 2020. She was a board-certified primary care physician and later became the Women's Health Clinic Medical Director for the VA Hospital. She had a special interest in developing and advocating for trauma-informed practices in healthcare. Her community involvement included presentations at local churches and in Jamaica promoting healthy eating, exercise, and behaviors to decrease hypertension and diabetes in communities of color. Jackie attended Christian Fellowship Church of God for decades where she was an active member, a mentor, a Sunday school teacher, and was involved in many more activities. Jackie was a charming, free-spirited, considerate champion for all. She had a particular fondness for the geriatric population. She touched many lives and left a lasting impression on all she met. She was passionate about medicine and welcoming to all regardless of their station in life. Jackie enjoyed annual international trips with her two daughters and spending time with her family. In her spare time, she enjoyed reading, gardening, and cycling. Jackie had a peaceful, calming spirit, and was quick to laugh at life. She was a fervent warrior of God. Jackie married Scott M. Jones, Esquire on April 4, 1997. During their marriage of twelve years, they produced two daughters, Erica Elizabeth Jones and Alissa Marie Jones. Left to cherish her memories are her mother: Gloria Beckford (Joseph); daughters: Erica Jones and Alissa Jones; siblings: Merdena Harrell (Anthony), Mecham Beckford, Rickerdo Beckford, Oneil Williams, Daniel Beckford, Sarah Beckford, Catherine Beckford, and the late Christopher Beckford; Aunt: Theresa Bailey-Smith (Randall); Uncle: Vincent Soares (Jean); Nieces: Dasjah, Kayla, Krystal, Monae, Korey, and Marley; Nephew: Mecham Jr., a great-nephew Dermont and a host of cousins, other relatives, friends, and well-wishers.

Jackie was a beautiful, smart, humble and amazing woman. She lived a spiritual life, a life of integrity and humility. Jackie always placed church, family, patients and people first. Her girls were her pride and joy and her rock and champion during her last days on earth. The beautiful spirit that she was, and the awesome memories that we shared will stay in my heart forever. She is now our guardian angel and the Heavenly Father’s soldier. Rest In Peace my dearly beloved sister until we meet again. ❤

Dr. Satchell was my primary care doctor for the last several years, but she was so much more than just a doctor. She often called well after normal hours to make sure I was taken care of or had what I needed, making me tell her to go home! Dr. Satchell was a patient listener who imparted genuine compassion, her concern for her patients was only surpassed by her kindness and understanding. My heart aches for her family, I hope they find some small comfort in the impact she had on those under her care. Her loss is tremendous and she will be severely missed.

Dr. Satchell was my primary care physician at the VA for over ten years. During that time she took great care of my various physical issues, but she used her caring, compassion and humor to work with me on healing my soul. I shall always remember her!

I was privileged to have Dr. Satchell as my physician for many years at the VA. Even if I hadn’t seen her in 6 months or more, she never failed to ask about my grandchildren and all of the family news in Colorado. She had a wonderful connection with everyone and will be sorely missed.

Dr. Satchell was the most patient, kindest, and genuine person that you my ever meet. She was my doctor at the VA, and had the best sense of humor. We laughed often, addressed my concerns, and laughed some more. She taught me so many things, how to advocate for myself/others, the Joy's of motherhood, and how to maintain a healthy marriage, and the Mediterranean and FODMAP diets. I am going to miss seeing her beautiful face. Love you and miss you dearly.

Dr. Satchell was the most patient, kindest, and genuine person that you my ever meet. She was my doctor at the VA, and had the best sense of humor. We laughed often, addressed my concerns, and laughed some more. She taught me so many things, mostly how to advocate for myself and others, the Joy's of motherhood, and how to maintain a healthy marriage. Let's not forget the Mediterranean and FODMAP diets. I am going to miss seeing her beautiful face. Love you and miss you dearly.

Dr. Satchell was my physician in the Women's Clinic at the Veteran's Hospital. First and foremost I send my deepest condolences to her daughters, family, and friends. We connected through so many things, one special similarity was her daughter and I share the same name. I opened my mail today and learned of my beloved Dr. Satchell's passing. I sat in tears, and for a while I just thought of the girls and all of the people that loved her so much. I am one of those people, and I am saddened that I missed her service. I confided in her with everything as a young married woman. I already miss her dearly and not sure how to move on to a different doctor. Rest in heaven Dr. Satchell, I will follow that Mediterranean and FODMAP diet she's been telling me about. She taught me how to advocate for myself and to speak up when something was not right. I know we laughed a lot about life and the Joy's of motherhood. I am going to truly miss her.

I am so sorry to hear this news of Dr Satchell’s passing. She was my beloved Dr at the Women’s Health Center at the VA for many years. It is because of her that I was properly diagnosed after 4 years with Diabetes. She had the best bedside manner and never rushed through a visit, making me feel like I was the most important person at that time. I am so sad to think I will never see her again. I told anyone that would listen about the wonderful Dr I had at the VA and I will miss her immensely. Dr Satchell thank you for your kind manner, brilliant doctoring and wonderful personality. You were one in a million!❤

To my beloved sister, I will miss you so much! Words cannot describe the immense sorrow I feel that I will no longer see your beautiful face or hear your comforting words ever again. Not only were you an amazing physician, mother, sister, daughter, wife and friend, but you were also an angel here on earth. I have never met anyone who exudes as much positivity and radiance as you. Our family was so blessed to have you for a little over half a century. I know you are resting well now and we will continue to keep your legacy of kindness, spirituality and loyalty alive. We love you!
