Jackie Peters is Brooke Peters' cousin and a love interest of Michael Brody. She develops a passion for sailing just like Michael. She is a classic "damsel in distress" character, evidenced by her constant panicking and screaming when the group is attacked by a Great White Shark. She and Sean Brody are stranded on upturned boats when the rest of their friends swim to safety at Cable Junction, but they are saved by Sean's father, Martin Brody, who kills the shark and paddles the two to safety.
Jackie wears a pink, button-up shirt and red shorts.
