HD 101: Jacqueline Cotton


Who is Jacqueline Cotton?

Jacqueline Cotton is a small business owner, mother and widow. She grew up in Illinois across the river from St. Louis and attended college at Midwestern State University in Wichita Falls, TX where she earned a degree in Communications and Public Relations with a minor in Music.

She married her college sweetheart, Robert Cotton, moved to Creve Coeur and finally to Chesterfield to raise their family. She and Robert spent 37 happy years together bringing up their two daughters, Allison and Miranda. She was by his side as he fought brain cancer (Glioblastoma) and passed away in early 2022. She cares deeply about health insurance after having been through a 3 year losing battle with her husband, who had no health insurance at the time of his diagnosis. This gives her a unique point of view regarding health insurance.

When her brother passed suddenly 2 weeks after her husband, she opened up her home to his son, Marshall, which gave him the opportunity to pursue his undergraduate education in the area.

In addition, she has long been passionate about Reproductive Rights and has volunteered often with Planned Parenthood. Jacqueline wants to step up and be part of recovering those rights. Missouri has become a dangerous state for many and she is compelled to make District 101 and all of Missouri a safe place to live, work and play!
