Jackie started singing when she was three years old and had a love for music that she shared with everyone through the years.

She could often be found humming a tune or writing a jingle. Jackie had a spirit of hospitality and loved cooking, baking, and taking care of every one around her. Being a wife, mother, and MeMe was her entire world.
