“If you want to be happy, be….”
Jackie, aka “Rollercoaster” Mori grew up in Copiague, NY as the youngest of five children. Currently divorced, Jackie has a 21 year old son whom she states is her greatest accomplishment. Jackie works as a legal assistant and it is no secret in her law firm that she, unknowingly, strutted around the office with her skirt tucked into her undies! No wonder she selected “Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood” as a movie title to describe her life!
Jackie is quite the talented lady, as she can blow bubbles with her own saliva! Perhaps, this is her rendition of “The Rain Song” by Zepplin she’s been practicing to get an audition on The Voice! America’s Got Talent has also been screening Jackie for her Dr. Doolittle aspirations. They heard SIS-Jackie has been working on super power skills to talk to Suki in doggy heaven and teach her calico cat to meow when she brings home another race medal!
Jackie loves to be on the beach yet dreams of one day traveling again to Europe, either Portugal, Spain or ziplining anywhere she can find that special man! Apparently, the last time she was eating at her favorite restaurant in Rome she found amore’, so a mediterranean cruise may be in order for some-more’!
SIS-Jackie was diagnosed with breast cancer (HER2) September of 2005. Jackie had a lumpectomy, chemotherapy and radiation. Like many of her fellow SISters, Jackie notes that beating cancer was the hardest thing she’s ever done.
We all know Jackie loves to win and sleep with her medals but she really wishes she could win the lottery! In the meantime, continuing to improve all aspects of her paddling technique and being on the dragon boat is how “happy” Jackie finds peace.
We love you SIS-Jackie! Paddles up!
