I just found out yesterday about Jakies passing I went to Maria regina with her for 9th and 10th grades and we had some classes together and then we saw eachother years after that at a bar in Malverne when I went to see a band-I was really saddened to hear of her death because I remember her as a very funny very sweet girl that had a huge heart-God Bless you Jackie

I attended a memorial remembrance ceremony for what happened 10 years ago in Orlando, Florida at Lake Eola Park. All the victims of that day had their names on American flags posted in a grassy area in the ground. I picked her flag out at random, just as her death was. I remembered that she died 10 years ago even though I never knew her, met her, or even what she looked like. Let us never forget her.

Jackie was a beautiful young lady. She was always the girl to put a smile on my face because she always had something nice or funny to say. I will always love you, Jackie!

I only met Jackie once, at my wedding. I heard she just loved weddings, and my brother was a friend of hers, and she asked if she could go with him. She didn't care that she didn't know us. She wanted to come and join the fun. I hadn't thought about her for a while, since I only met her the one time, but today we were at Eisenhower park and took a walk over to the 9/11 memorial. I was pretty impressed with it. It was a nice tribute. As I was skimming through the names of the Nassau residents who lost their lives that horrible day, her name popped out at me, and it touched my heart, thinking of all the people who knew and loved her and how unreal it must have all seemed to them on that day, as well as all the people who lost loved ones on that day. Speaking or reading about 9/11 brings a lump to my throat and tears to my eyes to this day. I didn't know Jackie, but I just wanted to pass along my condolences to them.

Dear Aunt Jackie,

I was only a year old when you left us, but I know you're up in heaven with Grandpa watching over us. I pray for you every day in school, and one day I will meet you again in heaven.

Jackie was my cousin. Sad to say, but we hadn't seen each other since we were kids. We will never forget that day... so many amazing and brave people were lost. What we can do now is to pay tribute to all those who were lost, and all who serve our country to ensure nothing like this ever happens again.

This past 9-11, my 11 year old daughter and I participated in a Memorial walk, and met many wonderful people who were touched by this tragedy. Still, eight years later, it was just as difficult as the first for me. Still numbing and raw, with many tears. Don't know if, or when it will get easier, but your memory lives on. Much love always!

I drew Jackie's name at church eight years ago. They had several bags filled with the names of victims, and we were to pray for everyone, but specifically for the person whose name we had chosen. I've read so much about Jackie, and while I never knew her, I think about her all the time—when the digital clock reads 9:11 and on every anniversary of that tragic day. Blessings.

Jackie was my friend's older sister who became my friend as well later on in life. Her brother Mike and I played soccer together for many years as kids. I send my thoughts and prayers to her entire family as the loss of a loved one and a friend is hard to cope with under these circumstances. She will be greatly missed. We love you Jackie and you will always be remembered.

I used to work at Nassau Community College on Long Island years ago. One of the women who I worked with in the Registrar's Office at NCC, Marion Donovan, lost her daughter Jacqueline Donovan, during the collapse of the first building at the World Trade Center. Marion was walking from her car, in the parking lot, towards the Registrar's Office, when her daughter frantically called her on her cell phone, and said, "Mommy, a plane hit the building, and now I can't breathe, and it's so hot....."
and then the phone went dead. They never found Jacqueline's body, as far as I know.

Today, as well as on all September 11ths, since the attack, I remember Jacqueline Donovan for the sweet person she was; full of life and a really fun girl. Jackie was a student at Nassau Community College back in 1988, when I worked there, and visited our office almost daily. She had been in a horrific accident the week before she was supposed to graduate, in 1987 or 88. The accident she had then almost killed her; she survived only to lose her life in the attacks on September 11th.

Jackie was 34 when she died.

Just wanted to share this memory to add to the many personal tragedies of that day.

I went to high school for 4 years with Jackie Donavan (she is one of 2 classmates I've lost in the 9/11 attacks).I remember her always being full of life and always very sweet and funny. We were in the same circle of friends. I found out about Jackie months after 9/11 through another classmate, Maureen. I'm very saddened by the loss of such a wonderful person. I always stop to say a prayer and pay tribute to her when I am by her bench which is towards the west end of the Long Beach boardwalk. I'm hoping to meet up with Jackie again in heaven one day.

Jackie was a very close friend of my cousin Tommy.  I liked her from the momentI met her.  Her smile, her laugh, her personality...one of a kind.  It may sound cliche, but she really did light up a room.  She was a part of my family, as my cousin would drag her to every wedding, birthday, bbq, or whatever.  Yet, the most boring party became the funnest whenever she was there.  I can still picture her balancing a spoon on her nose at somebody's wedding (can't remember the wedding, but I remember Jackie!).

When my cousin Tommy passed away, a little more than a year before, she was a great source of comfort.  I had hoped she and I would stay friends.  We briefly lost touch, but bumped into each other at Jeremy's Ale House.  We swore to each other we would meet up again soon.  I believe that was August 2001.  We never did get together again. 

I do believe she is up there on a cloud, watching over everyone who loved her so much.  Right next to her is Tommy, and the two of them have smiles from ear to ear, planning their next prank.

i 1st met jackie in early 1997. she had just opened up a new bagel store in valley stream on long island. i had just started a new job over in that area and i used to go in there for my morning coffee and bagel. she was so nice and very pretty too. her store was a real nice place to go,all new inside and very clean.and of coarse the bagels were excellent. we became friends.i said to her i know its not polite for a guy to ask a woman her age but i was just curious because you look around my age. she laughed and said  its ok i;m 31. we used to talk sometimes when she wasnt busy. she made a comment to me (you live here) and she laughed it was funny.over a coarse of time i developed a crush on her. i wanted to ask her out for a date but i never had enough nerve to. now i wish i had.this news of her saddened me deeply. she was such a wonderful. nice person and very smart. may god bless you jackie. you will always be in my heart. love gary
