Ms. Harriett Jackson Mottley was born and raised here in Detroit. Her family has been attending St. John’s Church for five generations, including her uncle Mr. Harvey Jackson who was the Senior Warden of the St. John’s Vestry from 1963-1967. Harriett graduated from Cass Technical High School in Detroit, and then she attended Wayne State University. She worked for the Wayne State Medical School for many years in the historic Detroit Receiving Hospital. She was happily married to late husband Norris for 48 years. Harriett manages our office, coordinates the parish calendar, and helps produce most of our publications.
In her spare time, Harriett enjoys playing bridge and other card games. She is a big Detroit Lions fan, although she enjoys most of our city teams. And she prides herself on being a one suitcase traveler.
