Biography

Jacqueline Amelia Parkington Hawthorne, Jackie to her friends, is just shy of ninety years old. She was born in 1930 in Boston, Massachusetts and lived there until she was sent to Miss Porter’s School in 1943. She graduated in 1947 and attended Cornell University thereafter, majoring in American History. In 1951, she traveled west to Stanford Law School.

Afterwards, she used her degree and her business savvy as best she could, but it found its most fertile ground after she married Tanner Hawthorne in 1955, when they began to work together on business ventures. They had their first and only child, Abigail, in 1958. Tanner died tragically in a car accident only two years later, leaving Jackie as a young widow.

She took over the business solo, and attracted the attention of the Ventrue who would be her domitor and later sire.

She was embraced into House Everard in the seventies and distinguished herself well through the economic instability of the 1980’s, when Jackie and her business partner, Richard Clark Jr., built a thriving ultra-luxury concierge and lifestyle management service for Kindred and Kine alike. The success of the business allowed her to rapidly develop the connections and resources she needed to stand out among other Ventrue neonates.

In 2019, she and Richard decided they had lived on the East Coast for too long, and wanted a change of pace. They moved back to their old stomping grounds of San Francisco, where both of them had spent some of their mortal years.

In September of 2019, she succeeded Eveline Witt as Primogen of Clan Ventrue. Ms. Witt remains on as Whip to guide Jacqueline through her first time holding such a position.
