My memories with Jackie started at childhood, as a cousin and good friends we shared lots thru the years. Remembering the sleep overs as kids to the trips I accompanied her when she was flying for SCA. We had so much fun, and plenty of laughs. One of my favorite memories was her ability to make fudge, perfectly every time. She would call me and let me know when she was making fudge and I would not miss out on that opportunity. She would pour some of the fudge out on a plate but would always leave a generous amount for us to eat right out of the pan still warm. It was so good! I am so thankful for all the times we shared. Anyone that new Jackie new of her generous heart, her funny, and that beautiful smile. I miss you sweet lady, rest in peace with all the love that surrounds you.

I met Jackie in 1979 when she worked for Western Airlines and I was a new Flight Attendant and had just been based in Minneapolis. She immediately offered me friendship and introduced me to this wonderful city. We shared many fun times and lots of laughs as two single woman just starting a new life. Unfortunately, we lost touch when the Minneapolis based closed and we were forced to choose a different direction.

Even though I have not spoken to Jackie for many years, reading all these touching memories is no surprise. She was a special person then, and remained that way throughout her life. I feel lucky to have known her and I am sad to have lost the opportunity to rekindle a long ago friendship!

I met Jackie when we worked together at Sun Country Airlines. She was so sweet and funny and I just loved working with her! I remember her big kit of Mary Kay makeup that she would pull out between flights to do her lips. 💋💋💋
She also had a cute, funny way that she looked when she ate, that made everything looks so good. Silly memory...
Rest In Peace beautiful lady! ❤️

I had the pleasure of flying with Jackie when our DC 10 was our playground at Sun Country Airlines! So blessed to have known such a beautiful, funny, smart loving woman! When you look at her beautiful skin, you know she was a Mary Kay Consultant! She was a smart business woman! I admired her ambition. When she found her true love, we were all so happy for her, but sad to see her leave her Sun Country family! I will keep the fond memories of Jackie close in my heart! Hugs to Esau and all of her family and close friends!🙏🏻❤️

Jackie was a beautiful person and had a heart of gold. She was kind, humble, and gracious. She had such warmth, enthusiasm, love and kindness for everyone. I never saw her without a smile on her face which brought such joy. I was blessed and my life richer for being able to call her my friend.

Close friends are few and far between, I was blessed to have Jackie as one of them. Hard to believe that our friendship lasted 40 years. She made me laugh and feel alive like no one else. We just shared our Halloween together and of course Esau would watch us clown around like teenagers out of control, but we had a way of lifting spirits for us and those around us. The sweetest soul you'll find..I will miss you my dear dear friend, until we meet again..

I met Jackie when I started at Sun Country Airlines in 1992. I quickly realized she was one-of-a-kind. Her humor was infectious. Soon, we were comrades-in-arms in our work together on the first union contract for the Sun Country flight attendants. We spent endless hours-days and nights together. Of course, lot of breakfasts [Jackie's favorite!] too. I'll always remember her 'travel pillow', her bunnies, some of her expressions ["truly" and a few I can't print in public]. And then, there was our little vacation trip to Mazatlan. Memories to last a lifetime. Rest in Peace dear one.

Jackie and I were very close in junior high and high school. Her birthday was the same as my mom's. She was a great friend. We danced together in the Robinaires. We competed in the 1973 Svenskarnas Dag Queen pageant and Jackie won. (I was so glad she was the one to beat me.) We lost touch once I went to college. Every Robinsdale class reunion I hoped she would come to so we could reconnect. Jackie, you were so beautiful and talented! Miss you.

I met Jackie in 1993 at Sun Country Airlines. That was when the fun began! The stories, the jokes, the laughs and the mischief never ended. I feel blessed to have been a part of it. Jackie always reached out from her beautiful heart. Easu, she loved you dearly. You were her soul mate. Thank you for taking such tender, loving care of her. Jackie was an angle on this earth and now in the heavens. Rest peacefully my dear friend.
