After a devastating onset of an affliction in 2007 taking Jacki’s central vision from both eyes and now more than 10 years of visiting the best doctors worldwide that are still baffled by what took her eyesight, Jacki has turned her attention and efforts into being the prime example of how someone handed a negative experience can turn it into an inspiration for all of us. The “inspiration” behind her brother Rick’s PLAY MUSIC ENJOY LIFE! Music and Wellness program, Jacki has used Music to help her heal, and speak for all those afflicted as a voice of positive influence and well being! As she often states, all she wants to do is “Sing her Song”. Please also visit www.artandliving.com for more information about PLAY MUSIC ENJOY LIFE! and Jacki DePiro’s inspiration to this program.
Jacki's drive and determination lead her to buy the agency she presented, modeled
and MC'd for, along with her close friend and business partner Meredith Dirner Franco. Within just three short years Jacki and Meredith took the agency of 25 years and doubled its annual revenue while increasing profits significantly.
As a child, Jacki was raised in Buffalo NY, Cleveland OH and Chicago IL, and as an adult, has called the Los Angeles area home for over 20 years now. This truly accomplished and amazing vocalist continues to leave her audiences spell-bound with her new show and her first Solo artist Jazz CD “Where I Hang My Hat Is Home” continues to sell throughout the world. Her latest CD is due for release later this year.. The smooth, pocket-grooves Jacki sings to combine old-world class and swing with some classic Latin and “Motown” type grooves to add to the mix. Jacki gives the best of what Norah Jones, Diana Krall, Shirley Horn and Diane Reeves all offer yet adding far more power to the mix than any of these great vocalists. Her concerts always receive rave audience reviews and her respect from the global community of professional musicians is remarkable. .
Jacki lives in the greater Los Angeles area with her husband.
