In Loving Memory of
Jacky had an notable career with Elsevier during her 13 years of service to STM Journals. Jacky was a valued member of the team based in Oxford, UK. She worked with us in the Life Sciences and Social Sciences Journal team as an editorial manager, being responsible for the development of content in Current Opinion and Drug Discovery Today journals. With her long-lasting career at Elsevier, she possessed a lot of knowledge, working successfully together with a wide network of editors and authors.
Those of us who had the pleasure to have worked more closely with Jacky knew her for her positive attitude, for being a great listener and for giving wise and practical advice. Her editors and publishers really appreciated her openness, cordiality and compassion. Her years of experience granted her a wisdom that many of us valued highly.
Jacky was a lovely person, arts and crafts fan, football supporter and gardening lover. She was well-known in the Kidlington office and involved in many social and charity activities through RECares. Above all, her love was directed to her children and grandchildren, and in particular her great-granddaughter Lydia, whom she was able to spend some good quality time during the pandemic. Jacky would have reached her official retirement in August and was very much looking forward for the next phase of her life pursuing her other passions.
Jacky was a dear colleague and friend to many of us. Her kindness, open, friendly personality and positive outlook will be deeply missed. Our thoughts and sentiments are with her family and loved ones.
