North Shore Congregation Israel released a statement about Sundheim.
“Jacki’s work, kindness and warmth touched us all, from her early days teaching at the Gates of Learning Preschool to guiding innumerable among us through life’s moments of joy and sorrow as our Events and B’nei Mitzvah Coordinator– all of this with tireless dedication,” the statement said.
It added, “There are no words sufficient to express the depth of our grief for Jacki’s death.”
