The family name
was changed from
Goldberg to Gilbert
before they all
migrated to America
- presumably taking the
lead from Uncle Jack
(neé Marcus Goldberg)
who went into
vaudeville where it
would not have done
to be a 'Goldberg'

I was named Joyce Gilbert
but changed my name to Jessica
in 1992. I left San Francisco in 1968 and lived in New York for 17 years before moving to London. In 1998 I shifted my base once again, back to San Francisco where I lived on the bay in my floating home, The PickleYacht for 14 years and now live on land in San Francisco.
