  1. Awa!!! I am just seeing this, unfortunately … Jacquie was a colleague and friend and was a ‘full’ woman of the arts. A filmmaker, arts administrator, and poetic soul. She will be sorely missed. Condolences to her family.

  2. My name is DJuna and I have been searching high and low trying to reconnect with Jacquie. She and I were childhood friends for a few years. I traveled to the Island with her. We spent the summer there with her cousins; Karen and Stephanie of New York. Her grandfather with the Priest there in Grand Turk. This is a very sad moment for me to finally find her this way. A friend from the Island said that he had heard about one of the grand children passing away but wasn’t sure. I advised him that I had been trying for years to contact them but without any luck. Karen and I had reconnected when I was living in New York and then she and I had lost contact. I’m sending my deepest prayers to the entire family.

    Love DJuna Collier-McClung

  3. I happened to check the BPM website and saw a memorial scholarship in her name. Our paths crossed a few times when I was a reporter covering public media. She was so accomplished. Rest in peace.
