Professor Jackie Browne, Ph.D.

CAHSS Professor Jackie Browne, Ph.D., died in March 2017 following a long battle with cancer, but she left a lasting impact on everyone of her colleagues.

Browne was hired in 2003 by Professor Kimberly Durham, Psy.D., to work in what was then the Fischler School of Education and Human Services. “Her passion until her final days was the elderly and the process of aging,” said Durham, Chair of the Department of Human Services (DJHS) and Interim Dean of the Abraham S. Fischler College of Education. “She was a caring individual, and the profession she picked was a good fit for her.”

In 2010, Browne began developing the Gerontology M.A. program. Russell Garner, the department’s Director of Administration & Student Services, remembers Browne being personable. “She would take the time to stop and ask how you’re doing,” he said. “She was very giving and thought of others more than herself.”

Assistant Professor Angela Yehl, Psy.D., knew Browne for about 10 years and previously worked with her on an NSU Quality of Life grant. She remembers Browne’s dedication to working on issues about aging and ageism. “She was passionate about changing the perception that it’s not a good thing to grow older,” Yehl said. “Her life’s work was shifting the paradigm that older people have nothing to offer.”
