Dr. Paul Nicholas Jacquin, M.D. 74, of Cookeville, Tennessee passed away on Tuesday, February 19, 2019, at his home surrounded by his family and loved ones.

Paul was born in Joliet, Illinois on Saturday, March 25, 1944, to the late Marian Bernice Jacquin and the late Paul Benjamin Jacquin.

Paul married Susan Jane Gilbert-Knutson Jacquin on March 19, 1994, in Salem, Oregon.

Paul is survived by his wife and her daughter Julie, his two daughters Emilie Schreiber of Poway, California and Susan Kranitz of Las Vegas, Nevada, as well as his two grand-daughters Allie (15) and Evie (12) Schreiber and his sister Susan Fulton of Brandon, Mississippi.

Dr. Jacquin came to Cookeville in 1996 to provide much-needed cancer care to the Putnam County area. He was the first full-time cancer specialist at the Cookeville hospital, and for the first 3 yrs saw patients five days a week, took care of hospitalized cancer patients every day, and was available seven days a week to both his patients and other physicians. He continued this high standard of cancer care with only minimal help for the next ten years until other medical oncologists were added to the hospital staff.

In addition to providing high quality and compassionate cancer care to all of his patients, he also worked behind the scenes to improve the quality of care, both thru formal participation on hospital committees, and informally, improving lines of communication with regional medical centers and pharmaceutical companies.

His honest caring of his patients and commitment to their best care was evident with every patient that he saw. Similarly, he cared deeply for his family with much love and devotion.

He was a salutatorian graduate of Crete-Monee High School in Crete, Illinois, Michigan State University and the University of Illinois in Chicago Medical School.

A Celebration of Life for Dr. Paul Nicholas Jacquin, M.D. will be held Saturday, April 6, 2019 at Bell Hall Auditourium/ Nursing Building at Tennessee Technological University at 1:00 pm.

You may give in memory to The Cancer Center Foundation at Cookeville Regional Medical Center or The American Cancer Society.

Dr Jaquin treated my lung cancer in 2010 and 2011. I chose him because of his dedication and caring for his Patients I saw as a LPN at CRMC. I knew he would show me the same respect and care as a Patient. He saw me through my Radiation and Chemotherapy. I have nothing but respect and love for him. He had the time to learn about my Husband and my children and care about them. I wouldn't be here today if not for him. Thank You for sharing him with my family.

Dear Jacquin Family,
The beauty of a life well-lived is that it leaves a legacy of love behind. Dr. Jaquin came into our lives in 1998 when our mom was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Even when her health did not line up, Momma would tell everyone that she was healed by the Blood of Jesus. Not one of us gets out of this life alive but the Doc helped Momma to have a decent quality of life for another eight years.
Dr. Jacquin always shot it straight with Momma as she was a shoot-it-straight kind of gal. Momma was on Medicaid and always felt bad that the Doc did not even begin to get paid for the treatment he provided her.
When Momma passed in 2006, she had saved $300 to give to him. With her proper instructions, we made an appointment and brought the money to Dr. Jacquin. The Doc said he could not take it but when we insisted (as he knew Momma would have), he did and donated it to the care fund for those that could not afford taxi trips and other things that most take for granted. I am sure Momma smiled down from Heaven.
Dr. Jacquin had an amazing sense of humor and was the perfect blend of Groucho Marx and Captain Kangaroo. I cannot imagine how challenging his role was in helping his patients heal from the ugly C word and deal with the defeat when they ultimately passed. As he was a very modest fellow, I was surprised to read that he had only been in Cookeville a short time when Momma became his patient and that he was instrumental in establishing the Cancer Center in Cookeville.
I am so sorry for your loss. Thank you for the gift of this amazing man as your family sacrificed time with him so he could take care of patients. He gave so much and is sorely missed in our community.
It has been said that “An inheritance is what we leave for someone. A legacy is what we leave in someone”. Dr. Jacquin’s legacy will live on through the lives he touches every day at the Center and through the memories you and your family have of him.
Debi Smith

My heart was so sadden when I saw on FB we lost such an amazing compassionate man. I worked with Dr Jacquin at the cancer center. He cared for his parents so much. But he also had a humerous side. He will be so missed. My prayers are with his family. He treasured his grandchildren, loved his family. God bless you.

I was a patient of Dr. Jaquin 2017-2019. I enjoyed it so much when I would see him and I was almost bawling when he told me that I was cancer free. Not tears of joy mind you. It was sadness knowing I wouldn't be his patient. My prayers of peace for his family. God bless you!
