Jackie Cassidy was born in Sheboygan and grew up in Madison. She attended Madison schools and, after working as a flight attendant for TWA and Wien Consolidated Airlines in Alaska, began a 36-year career as an ultrasound technician at the University Hospital and Clinics. She is now retired. She began making jewelry about 10 years ago. She and her work can be seen at many art and holiday fairs in the Madison area. Traveling and grandchildren also occupy her time.
Jackie's jewelry is on display at the University Hospital in the display cases near the gift shop and the surgical waiting area. Parking is available in the hospital ramp.
