Brooke is dearly missed by all who knew her. I was a friend of hers at Columbia, and it shocks me to know that she's gone. I am so sorry for the family's loss.
Brooke was my cousin and it pains me to know I didn't have the chance to get to know her better. I love her and I will really miss her. I wish strength to her family upon these hard times.
Jill Arends, cousin
I have Mercy band with Brooke's name. This is my way to honor the sacrifice daily. I would like the family & friends of Brooke to know that my heart aches for you and my lips will remember you in prayer.
I live in Manhattan, and of all the thousands of fliers that were posted by friends and family members in the city, I just always remember Brooke Jackman. I never even knew her. So young and with everything to live for. I remember thinking what a terrible waste. My condolences to her friends and family.
