Many family members have shared that they were successful in receiving a transfer of a loved one’s unused JetBlue miles after calling customer support and presenting the appropriate documentation for the account credentials and certified copy of the death certificate. Family members may also be asked to provide details around their involvement as a qualified beneficiary of the estate.

Atticus' Legacy Review of JetBlue's closing account process after someone dies = 5/10 stars
JetBlue gets mid-level marks for their closing account process after someone dies, mainly because the good things we hear about them are not in writing. It seems that customers are having experiences that are right up there with the best airlines, but not only does their policy have little about this subject, it actually states what people don't want to hear, "miles are non-transferrable." If JetBlue put a little more time into this issue and made a standard policy that favored their account holders, then they would get a much higher score. Hopefully, after receiving this less than perfect mark they'll write one for their clients.
