Club Leader Spotlight: Meet Jackie, Leader of From the Ashes

Posted by

When Deb came to this Club to help out with a Tribute Quest, she didn’t imagine staying… until she met Jackie, whose firm, but kind, style of leadership appealed to her. So, we can assume when she realized it was the right Club for her, she said: “Stick a fork in it! It’s done!” and hasn’t looked back.

1. What is the name of your Club, what league are you in?

From The Ashes, Diamond League.

As a wise person once said: “Straws in the mouth are better than forks in the eyes.”

2. Who is your Club Leader?


3. How long has the Club been around?

March, 2022

4. Has Jackie been the Club Leader since the start?

No. Donna was the leader before her.

5. What makes Jackie so special?

Jackie has worked her butt off to take this Club up from Rookie League. She is funny, caring, trusting, fair, and just a total joy to be around.

6. How does she motivate the Club?

Jackie continually motivates. She almost always finishes with the most Club Points. We have a new theme every week. Whoever gets the extreme Perk, gets to pick the theme for the week. It’s fun to see what teammates will put up for their theme. We put our answer behind our name… so we can see everyone’s choice throughout the week. It helps us get to know each other… and brings up some very funny and crazy chat conversations.

7. If you could sing Jackie a song, what song would you choose?

The song I would sing to Jackie… OMG…(hope she has ear plugs) would be “A Boy Named Sue” because I cannot tell you the laughs we have trying to figure out, from the names that join, if they are male or female.

8. What’s the funniest thing Jackie has done?

When Jackie is a bit upset and can’t get through to someone… she always says “Sticking a fork in my eye.” It has become quite entertaining… because when I don’t like something, I will tell her to give me her fork… she says I steal it, but I say “nope… I use it, wash it, and put it right back in the same eye I took it out of… so I just borrow it.” When she can’t find her fork, we usually find it in her other eye!

9. If your Jackie were a movie, what movie would he or she be?

She would be “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants.” Except instead of the pants, it’s her fork!

10. What’s a special talent that she has that makes it fun to be in this Club?

Jackie’s special talent is — her patience and sense of humor. I came to this Club with my alternates to help them with a Tribute Quest… the story of the team, and Jackie’s friendly nature kept me there. I love Love LOVE this team, and Jackie. She has worked so hard on this team. There are no words that can describe how much I think of her… but I hope, if she sees this, it will be enough!
