I am just getting this notice or I would have been to the service. Jacque was not only a classmate but a friend and service advisor. December 28th was our last time talking before you introduce to your co-worker and the last thing you said was baby girl you can trust her to do you right. I hate we did not get our opportunity to do lunch and reminisce on the Buc days. Love you Jacque, I will miss that big smile and the tenacity you showed about life good or bad through it all you kept your heart up. Heart of gold.

What a beautiful Memorial Service for a very special lady. My husband and I have been customers of Jacquie's for the past 13 years, and we both love her.
Today's service brought together friends and family from all phases of her life, and everyone there knew how truly wonderful Jacquie was. She was a unique individual, full of fun, laughter and caring for others. She will live in our hearts forever...

Dear Christine and Purdy Family,

Jackie was truly one of our favorite people. We have been honored to interact with her from the time we purchased our Prius in 2008. She was the best of the best, always pleasant and witty and grateful for her sweet and sour treats no matter how hectic her job was. We became closer with each visit.
Orris and I wish to convey our heartfelt condolences, so devastated with the news of her passing, sending love and blessings to you all in your grieving processes.
She shared so many memories about her beloved Family and always her love for Christine. Again, so very sorry for your loss.

I am so saddened to hear of Jacque's loss. She was such a beautiful soul that will dearly be missed. I knew her from the Toyota Service Dept, but have always considered her a friend. I'm happy I was able to see her and meet Christine about a month ago before I relocated to Washington State. I was so looking forward to us kayaking together on Lake Coeur d'Alene in Idaho. We talked about all the fun things we would do when she visited. She talked about her and Christine teaching the kids martial arts and her eyes lit up when she talked about it. May she rest in peace. I send so much love and light to Christine and Jacque's family. Big, big hugs to you all.

So very sorry for your loss. I've been a Toyota Customer for years and always looked forward to seeing Jacky when I needed service done. She was the best I've ever met taking care of my car. Always she would take a moment to find my Mom and give her a big hug and for me as well. We always loved a moment to chat with her and admire her collection of sun bobbleheads. Truly a beautiful human being that we will truly miss. Heaven has gained another angel.

I am very sorry for your loss of Jacquie. She has been my service advisor at Daytona Toyota for several years. I always knew I could count on her to take great care of my car. Her smiling face, bubbly personality, and caring style will be missed every time I go in to have my car serviced.

Jacquie's Family and Friends
Jacquie will be missed by more people than you even could imagine! When we drive into Toyota service we definitely will miss her genuine smile, quirky hair and those dozens of desk tchotchkes!
One just had to smile, if you were lucky enough to have Jacquie take care of you and your vehicle.
Blessings to all that shared her life.
