Early Life and Education

Further details regarding the exact date of her birth, as well as her family’s background, parents or siblings have never been publicly disclosed to the present day.
Since her early childhood, Jackie was mesmerized with weather forecasts, and while avidly watching morning news as a young girl, she was fascinated by ‘the radar moving behind the meteorologist and the way the graphics magically shifted from one screen to the other’. Following her passion for predicting Mother Nature’s activities, after matriculating from a local high school, she decided to guide her upcoming education towards meteorology.
Jackie enrolled at Pennsylvania State University (often referred to as Penn State or just PSU) from which she graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in meteorology. During her college days, she was actively involved within several meteorology clubs, including the Penn State University’s Branch of the American Meteorological Society (PSUBAMS), as well as the Campus Weather Service. As a member of The College of Earth and Mineral Sciences Student’s Council and its ‘Most Involved Student’, Layer was nominated to address the audience at the annual College of Earth and Mineral Sciences Exposition (EMEX). Besides these, she was also active within Lion Ambassadors and Penn State’s Dance Marathon (commonly referred to as THON).
Her first experiences linked to meteorology and broadcasting date back to her PSU days, when as a member of the Campus Weather Service, she was regularly involved in Communications Shifts as well as Forecasting Shifts, where she predicted a five-day weathercast for different parts of Pennsylvania. In 2011, Jackie began her internship for the WTAJ News, while in 2012 she completed another internship, for the ABC-affiliated television station in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.
Upon completing her studies, in 2013 Layer began her professional broadcasting career in South Bend, Indiana, serving as a meteorologist for WBND-LD. In the course of the next two years, she honed her professional skills by covering the midwestern area of the US, reporting about Lake Effect shows, tornado outbreaks and thunderstorms as well. In addition, she also tried her self as an anchor during the Notre Dam Day, when she joined the live broadcasts from the Notre Dame Hockey games. Eventually in May 2016 Jackie moved to Boston, Massachusetts, where she joined the New England Cable News – NENC prior to joining the local NBC’s Boston branch.
Since May 2018, Jackie Layer has served as a meteorologist for the 7News Weather Team.
Curious about Jackie’s private life, aren’t you?

It is certain that all these perks have massively helped her to gain a huge dose of popularity during her ongoing on-camera broadcasting career.
