Celebrating Jackie’s life, light and legacy.

Let’s influence positive change in health, education and wellbeing, in Jackie’s name and spirit.

About the Jaclyn Fisher Foundation

The Jaclyn Fisher Foundation was conceived as a family foundation by Jackie herself, and later was created in her name and memory by her parents and sister.

Jackie Lea Fisher was an extraordinary young woman whose life was tragically cut short at age twenty-five. Diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease at nine years old and with Primary Peritoneal cancer at the young age of 21, Jackie continuously embraced life to the fullest, always supporting others with abundant love.

Jackie was kind, generous, dedicated and passionately believed in the possibility of change for the better.

Through the Jaclyn Fisher Foundation we aim to keep Jackie’s memory alive, and to honor her extraordinary spirit going forward.

Our Mission

The Jaclyn Fisher Foundation is dedicated to continuing Jackie’s legacy of giving of herself and her resources for “Tikkun Olam”*, the betterment of both her community and the greater world.

In collaboration with you – our partners and donors – we hope to influence positive change in the areas of health, education and wellbeing, in Jackie’s name and spirit.

*Tikkun Olam is the Kabbalistic concept of repairing the world through acts of kindness, selfless giving and the pursuit of peace & light.
