Job position. Child Care Advocate
2001 - present
On September 9, 2001 her faith was put to the test when her son Juan, then 14 months old, was found head-first and motionless in an unattended bucket of mop water while attending daycare. Doctors told her that Juan, would never amount to anything and he would be a vegetable. By faith in God, she brought him home after 65 tedious and trying days in the hospital! Jackie wrote and self-published a book about her ordeal entitled "Juan's Story" which tells how God personally stepped in and ordered every step of Juan's care.
Jackie was devastated when she learned that the center was uninsured and Juan was unable to cover the millions of dollars needed for his medical care. Her tenacity unveiled a horrible truth about state-licensed daycare centers in Georgia: they are not required by law to carry liability insurance.
On March 19, 2004 after Jackie led a one woman crusade for change, Georgia Governor Sonny Perdue signed "Juan's Law." Her research revealed that more than 40 states have this same practice.
Jackie traveled to Virginia and convinced lawmakers to pass "Juan's Law," Governor Tim Kaine signed it into law in 2006.
Her fight to protect children led her to the United States Capitol where she convinced Congressman John Barrow to introduce "The Anthony DeJuan Boatwright Act" which passed the House in 2007 and again June of 2009. The bill has stalled in the Senate but Jackie continues her efforts to get this a national law! She hopes her title of Mrs. Georgia International will allow her to continue her push for the passage of the "The Anthony DeJuan Boatwright Act" as a federal law.
The city of Augusta, GA renamed Lincolnton Parkway, Anthony DeJuan Parkway on May 5, 2008. She has started the Antony DeJuan Boatwright Foundation in 2010 to further her child care advocacy.
Jackie Boatwright's efforts to protect children have been covered in MONEY Magazine, on CNN Headline News, the Associated Press and many other news medias.
Jackie has a BS in Pre-Law and a Masters in Business Administration and an EdS in Educational Leadership. Jackie is a mother to 2 sons and is married to Kevin M. Daus, MD. She was crowned Mrs. Georgia International 2016.
