Mom is usually right! Unfortunately, fabric markers are meant to be permanent. But there is hope. Using a cotton swab and some isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol, begin at the outer edges of the stain and work toward the middle. Change swabs as color is transferred from the stain to the swab. You can also use a white cotton rag to absorb some of the ink but do not rub because it may spread the ink - just blot. It may take several attempts to remove the ink. Use patience and hopefully it will fade. When you have removed as much ink as possible, spot treat the area with a solution of oxygen based bleach (OxiClean, Clorox 2, Country Save Bleach, Purex 2 Color Safe Bleach) and water. If the jacket is machine washable, mix a solution of the oxygen bleach and water following package directions and soak the jacket overnight. That should help to lighten any remaining color.
