Jacqui’s Story Essay


The Jacqui’s Story Essay is a responsive essay to the story of Jacqueline Saburido who was engulfed in flames as a result of being hit by a drunk driver in another vehicle.  The story documents who she was before the accident, her experiences throughout the accident, and the effects on her life and others afterwards.  


Juveniles ordered to complete the essay must read Jacqui’s story online or in printed format and write a responsive essay to her story.  The essay should include the juvenile’s personal thoughts and feelings about Jacqui’s story, what they have learned as a result of her story, and how they will apply the lessons to their personal life and future decisions.  The essay should NOT be a recount of what Jacqui went through but rather their own personal response to her story.  Once completed, the essay should be given to their probation officer for review and approval.  If the essay does not meet the criteria, the juvenile may be expected to write a new essay.
