Family was everything to Jackie and loved to be involved in all aspects of their lives. We would often hear from those who interacted with Jackie that she was always up beat and kept a big smile on her face. Jackie loved music and was a choir director starting in college up until this last year when she joyfully put on the Christmas program where she lived. Since Jackie loved people and parties, her Celebration of Life will be held January 13, 2024 at 10:00 AM located at LDS Stake Center, 1550 North Val Vista, Mesa, AZ.
