Celebrating Jackie Homann's 25th Anniversary at Jones Obenchain

Celebrating Jackie Homann's 25th Anniversary at Jones Obenchain

May 19, 2022

In honor of the many successful and driven women who have helped make up Jones Obenchain’s proud history, we’re excited to share a bit more about Jacqueline Homann, Jones Obenchain’s first-ever female partner. Jackie is celebrating her 25th anniversary at the firm and we’re so excited to celebrate this achievement with her!

Born in West Michigan and raised in Central Indiana, Jackie attended DePauw University where she earned her B.A. in political science and religion. Then, she attended the University of Notre Dame where she earned her J.D., subsequently working for the U.S. Bankruptcy court as a law clerk and briefly for another law firm. 

Jackie joined Jones Obenchain in 1997 as one of the first female attorneys in the firm’s history. Then, in 1999, she became the firm’s first female partner, serving clients primarily in business counseling and litigation. Her practice areas also include construction law, insurance litigation, and bankruptcy litigation, both as a Chapter 7 bankruptcy trustee and as counsel for both debtors and creditors. 

Today, there are several female partners at Jones Obenchain. Janet Horvath joined Jackie in 2003 and was named a partner in 2009. Amanda Zaluckyj joined Jones Obenchain in 2018 and recently became a partner in January 2022.

Jackie’s legacy of high achievement and breaking glass ceilings carries not only through Jones Obenchain, but also her own family. Her daughter, Alex, is a high school math teacher and one of only two female boy’s golf team coaches in the state of Indiana. She is an accomplished golfer, holding multiple college records and teaches private lessons to students throughout the community. 

When asked about the most rewarding aspect of being a woman in the law field, Jackie said, “I’ve been honored to have many great female mentors who have enriched both my legal practice and my life. Now, it’s my joy to mentor other women—whether they be clients, my daughters, colleagues, or friends—to help them achieve their goals and succeed in all of their vocations.”

Join us in celebrating Jackie’s achievements!
