In Memory of Jackie Louise Rogoff

In Memory Of

Jackie Louise Rogoff

Devoted to All Living Beings

With Love from Family & Friends

Jackie Rogoff

Jackie Louise (Anton) Rogoff was a beloved mother, grandmother, relative, and friend. We all miss her.

After a few years of challenges to set up a memorial for her – we are finally there.

Jackie loved people and her friends & family --and she loved wildlife. She was a member of several conservation organizations. So a fitting memorial to her would be related to her love of nature, animals, and conservation.

A fund is set up to support a bench in her memory and gifts over the amount needed for the bench will be used for the care and support of the manatees. The bench will be located at the overlook of the David A. Straz Jr. Manatee Critical Care Center. This has been an awful year for the manatees in Florida. We have seen a peak year for red tide related deaths and illnesses. We had a record year of manatee deaths due to boat strikes. The Center not only helps the sick and injured manatees, but is also a place to help the orphaned manatees. The goal for all our “patients” is to be able to release them when they are well and bottle feed the orphans so that they will safely grow and be able to be brought back into the wild.

This memorial to Jackie matches her interests and addresses a critical conservation need.
