She moved to Miami Beach, where she met Martin Weissman, who owned a bar there. They were married and moved to Pensacola, opening the Trader Jon's nightclub on January 1, 1953. Jackii operated the business with her husband, and they lived for a while in the building's second-story loft. She occasionally employed her artistic talents at the club, painting a portrait of Ernest Hemingway on the Palafox Street sidewalk and scenes of Paris inside the bar, near the Blue Angels museum.
She was diagnosed with lung cancer in the 1980s, losing a lung and surviving a number of heart complications. According to her daughter Cheri, "She defied nature and people in the medical profession. She never mellowed out as she got older. She loved being with people until the very end."
