Jaclyn enjoyed a successful design career and exuded vivacity.

An intern at Caliber Creative, Jaclyn excelled at Fossil Group's headquarters and Squires & Company, in Richardson, Texas, before working in-house for nearly eight years at OneSource Virtual as their creative brand manager.

Known among her co-workers and peers as “the rag queen,” she had a passion for setting typography, a stellar eye for the perfect color palette, and was a true lover of print and all things paper. An avid traveler with an innate curiosity about the world, Jaclyn spent time in Portugal, Spain, South Africa, the United Kingdom and numerous Eastern European countries, all while working remotely and leading a creative team. Endearingly sincere, kind-hearted, and wittier than she knew, Jaclyn had a natural ability to connect with people, making countless genuine, deep and lasting friendships. Her knack for a well-timed joke or self-effacing story made her a joy to be around professionally and personally; her consideration and care for others knew no bounds.

Through the Jaclyn Williamson Design Scholarship created by her parents, Sarah and Kenneth Williamson, in memory of their daughter Jaclyn's legacy lives on — allowing her to continue to take new designers under her wing as they grow and strengthen their skills.
