Jackie moved to L.A. working at Lauren Fenmore's Department Stores. Jackie fell in love with CEO of Forrester Creations, Eric Forrester. Stephanie Douglas, Eric's wife, doesn't like poeple who mess with other people's marriages especially her and began a rivalry with Jackie. When Jackie's son Nick more became involved with Brooke Logan who was engaged to Ridge Forrester (Eric and Stephanie's son), Jackie didn't care and pushed Nick to pursue his relationship. This caused Nick to meet his father and Jackie's ex-lover Massimo Marone. During a flight crash, Jackie admit to Nick that Massimo's his father and Frank Payne, Jackie's husband at the time had decieved them both thinking Jackie and Massimo didn't care for each other and Massimo didn't know about Nick.

Ridge then later Nick and Brooke were captured by thugs sent by ex-fugitive Sheila Carter for Massimo's gold. Massimo sent out a rescue mission and Ridge fighting Sheila's thugs for Brooke fell in a furnace and was thought to be dead. Nick then seduced Brooke with Ridge returning to L.A. and Brooke was pregnant. Ridge and Nick both took a paternity test and Nick was the father. Jackie was overjoyed but then the doctor explained there was a mistake in the test. Jackie kept this a secret and secretly ran a second test and found Ridge was the father but didn't tell anyone. The truth later came out and so did Jackie's prior knowledge. This put a strain on Nick and Jackie's friendship and almost destroyed Jackie's and Massimo's. Ridge turned his back on Massimo and started a war with Nick Marone and Massimo was in the middle of a war between his two sons.

Stephanie and Jackie were fighting and Stephanie accidently through Jackie off a balcony putting her in a coma. Donna Logan watched her fall. Nick Marone was outraged at Stephanie for doing this to his mother, and Nick with the help of Donna wished to Stephanie what she did to his mother. Turns out Jackie lied about some things how her accident happened and she had some shameful secrets. Such as Jackie slept with a few of the sea captains at Marone Industries when Nick was young. Nick thought it was untenable that his mother was a prostitute. With the help of psychiatrist Taylor Hamilton, Nick forgave Jackie. Nick and Taylor then grew a relationship. Stephanie announced that Jackie was a former prostitute in a fashion show and it backfired because Jackie got sympathy. Eric despised his wife's negativety and gave sympathy towards Jackie. Jackie made an underestimated statement about Stephanie's younger sister Pamela Douglas, and was kicked out.
