END--Jacqueline The world has lost an amazing woman, loving sister, aunt, and friend, a multi-talented artist, published author, famous advertising writer, astoundingly gifted cook, photographer and lover of animals, particularly cats. She is survived by her devoted brother Joseph Arlotta, niece Kyra Arlotta, and her cat, Susie. Jackie enjoyed a celebrated career as an award-winning copywriter and creative director in advertising, creating famous advertising for some of the most heralded agencies which includes Doyle Dane Bernbach; Chiat/Day; and Wells Rich Greene. She was loved and respected by her peers and colleagues. She was known for creating the Freakies cereal and the band of animated "misfit" characters that introduced the hit cereal to America. She is also known for the Bic Banana commercials which she worked on with Mel Brooks. She created famous advertising for Volkswagen, Absolut, Nivea, and so many more. Just a few things we will remember and forever cherish about Jackie: her brilliant sense of humor, intelligence, exquisite beauty and elegance, her kindness, her wisdom, her magical and beautiful holiday gingerbread cookies, her breath-taking flower photography, her clever writings, sophisticated style and huge heart, her generous desire to help anyone in need and her sense of magic. A spirited libertarian, Jackie was a dedicated patriot and fierce defender of the constitution. In lieu of flowers contributions to the Humane Society or the ASPCA would be appreciated. Memorial service Wednesday August 22, 2012, 5pm at Frank E. Campbell, 1076 Madison Ave. at 81st St., NYC.
