This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Silver City, Alpine County, CA on Sept. 7, 1864. Jessie's marriage to John Short of Fresno in 1885 ended with his death in 1919; she married Egbert Jackson in San Francisco in 1920. Upon moving across the bay to Berkeley, Mrs. Jackson established a home at 1382 Euclid Avenue and erected a summer studio in Carmel on the corner of Dolores and 7th where El Paseo Court now stands. She studied there for many years with Sydney Yard. Although she worked in oil on rare occasions, she was primarily a watercolorist of coastal scenes of the Monterey Peninsula. She died of heart failure at Napa (CA) State Hospital on Dec. 11, 1948. Exh: Fresno Co.
