Jackie grew up in her hometown, however, her childhood can`t be regarded as a happy one; her father was allegedly abusive towards her mother, and Jackie, her mother and Jackie`s sister enlisted in the “Casa Protegida Julia de Burgos”, which is a domestic violence shelter in San Juan. Jackie attended primary and secondary school in Puerto Rico, after which she moved to The Bronx, New York City, with her mother and sister. She continued her education in the USA; enrolling the University of Miami where she studied meteorology, and then studied journalism at the University of Florida.
Before her career as a reporter and meteorologist, Jackie tried pursuing a career as an actress, but couldn`t land any significant roles, and instead sought engagement in different elements of the entertainment industry. She auditioned for the role of Selena, for the biographical film of the murdered Latin star Selena Quintanilla-Perez, but Jennifer Lopez got the part. After that, Jackie got the job at WRMA in Miami. Little by little she progressed, and soon joined the HBC Radio Company; there, she co-hosted a radio program, reporting on traffic conditions and news on the whole. She then hosted her own music show at WRTO, and also got her first job in television, serving as the traffic reporter for WSCV, but stayed employed in the radio company too, which considerably increased her net worth.
As her presence on television increased, she was spotted by Univision producers, and was soon appointed as a meteorologist for Al Amanacer de Noticias 23. Jackie progressed further when she started reading weather prognosis for the talk show “Despierta America” – which is among the most popular in the US Hispanic community – Univision`s newsmagazine show Primer Impacto, alongside Barbara Bermudo.
She didn`t stop there, as she extended her television presence to reality shows; she featured in “Mira Quien Baila!” in 2010 – which is a Spanish version of the American show “Dancing with the Stars” – and finished second in the competition. Her success in the show won her $10,000, which she then donated to the safe house “Casa Protegida Julia de Burgos”.
To speak further of her accomplishments, Jackie made her acting debut in the film “AWOL-72” (2015), directed by Christian Sesma, and starring Luke Goss and rapper RZA, among other stars, which also added a substantial amount to her net worth. Undoubtedly, her net worth will become even greater as she successfully engages herself in several parts of the entertainment industry, as she is a multi-talented person.
Regarding her personal life, Jackie was married to Puerto Rican singer and actor William Omar Rivera – better known to the world by his stage name, Don Omar – from 2008 until 2011.
