From her website:

PLEASE NOTE: As of August 15th, 2019: Jennifer Jackson is temporarily CLOSED to queries — except by referral from clients or colleagues, or if a submission has been previously requested.

Any queries received prior to the above date via her query account will still receive a response in due course.

With regret, any queries received after that date will be deleted unread. Please check back here for updates on query status.

"Thanks for your query.

As to your material I'm afraid I will be passing -- I'm just not drawn
strongly enough to the concept of your story to feel that I'd be the
right agent for the project. I realize it is difficult to make an
assessment from a query; nevertheless please know that I give serious
attention to every letter, outline, and writing sample I receive.

Sorry I couldn't give you a more positive reply. Thanks for thinking
of me, though, and best of luck in your search for representation."
