Jackie's Story

In March 2008, Jackie Spellman was a happy, healthy 24-year-old with a contagious smile and laugh and her father’s sense of humor. She had recently completed a sports marketing program with AtlantaSpirit, owners of the NBA Hawks and NHL Thrashers, and had accepted an opportunity to join the NFL’s Houston Texans marketing group. The former college soccer player and lifelong sports fan was thrilled to move closer to family and begin a new chapter of her life.
