Dr. Jacqueline R. Hott, President of Everything
I nominate my mother, Dr. Jacqueline R. Hott, PhD, FAAN, as the greatest Jewish mother ever. She has been president of Sisterhood, Hadassah,and also a Girl Scout Leader, Den Mother, Rummage Sale Organizer, Professor and Dean of Nursing. She also wrote all the lyrics for the myriad fundraising shows for the synagogue. All this while raising four kids, going back to school to get her masters and PhD and then post-graduate work in psychoanalysis and sexual therapy. She has great style and joie de vivre. She is still going strong at nearly 87, working six days a week as a therapist with a specialty in couples and sex therapy. She is beautiful and funny and whip smart and the most generous person I know. Her four kids and ten grandchildren would agree.
