Portrayed by

Jackie Joyner-Kersee is a main character on ABC's The Neighbors portrayed by Toks Olagundoye.


Jackie Joyner-Kersee is married to her community’s Supreme Leader, which makes her the Zabvronians equivalent to a first lady. Although Jackie is also baffled by Earth’s many strange customs, she’s much more open-minded than her stubborn husband. Having been a star athlete on her home planet, she also possesses a competitive spirit, and a resilience that serves as an anchor for not only her husband, but the alien community at large.

On Zabvron, her name is Debbie, and not Jackie.

Family issuesEdit

Though her family is on Earth she remains separated from her dearly loved sisters. Who sadly were exiled by Larry after an attempt on his life. Due to this she reguarly (around Thanksgiving) is filled with a longing for her family. In "Thanksgiving Is for the Bird-Kersees", Dick and Reggie freed her sisters on Thanksgiving to please their mother and to bring their family closer together. They were freed from exile by Larry at the end of the day.
