Jacquelyn Adler Crowell Holt, age 30, passed away on April 25, 2018.
Jackie will be remembered for her courage, determination, wit, and loyalty as well as love for her family, friends, and teammates. Regardless of the endeavor, Jackie tackled every challenge with energy and tenacity. Jackie is a 2006 graduate of the Winter Park High School IB program and a 2011 graduate of UF, where she earned a degree in mechanical engineering. With a natural capacity for athletics, Jackie competed in tennis, swimming, track, and triathlon as a young girl before she decided to focus on her passion: cycling. After having won numerous junior, collegiate, and elite national cycling titles, she became a professional cyclist in 2011 and rode for the U.S. National Team internationally, traveling to Europe, China and the Middle East.
In 2013, she was diagnosed with brain cancer and subsequently changed her focus from competing to coaching. For the past four years, she coached youth cycling at the Dick Lane Velodrome as well as junior road racing teams and individual adults. She also took this time to create a cozy home and garden in Atlanta with her loving and devoted husband, Daniel and their three cats. Jackie will be missed by her family, friends, teammates, and the young athletes she coached. She is survived by her parents Nanci Adler and Don Crowell of Maitland, her husband Daniel Holt of Atlanta, and her sister Elizabeth Crowell of Durham, NC.
