About Jacqueline

Jacqueline Ko, OMF and OMF Canada Ambassador, is a multi-award-winning Canadian performer, producer, and disability advocate. She is known for her roles in opera, theatre, musical theatre and film, and is also the founding artistic director of Opera Mariposa, Canada’s first fully disability-run opera company.

Connection to OMF

Bed-bound from ME/CFS for a large portion of her childhood, Jacqueline has become determined to merge her love of music with advocacy. At age 17, she presented her first Benefit + Awareness concert for ME/CFS. Over a decade later, Opera Mariposa’s annual Benefit + Awareness events have raised over $115,000 for ME/CFS treatment, research, education, and patient support.
