Our Continuing Conversation about Race and Racism in our Community
January 25 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Our guest speaker, Jakki Cobb is a wife and mother of three daughters and “Mimi” to one granddaughter. Born and raised in Morristown, Jakki and her family moved to Landing 15 years ago.
After a 30-year career with CIT, most recently as Vice President of External Reporting, Jakki was downsized in January 2019. She describes herself as semi-retired, splitting her time as a basketball mom and serial volunteer. She serves as Executive Secretary of the Morris County NAACP, Treasurer for Carette’s Inc., and is an active member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. and the Morristown Area League of Women Voters. Previously, as a licensed minister, Jakki’s advocacy and volunteer service was through her faith community, and she led bible studies at the Morristown Correctional Facility and Market Street Mission. For years she encouraged people to “look up and live” and wait for change; now she actively looks for ways to bring about changes she had prayed about for so many years. She reminds us that we have to be the change we want to see.
