Jackie always had a ready smile and a presence that brought understanding and peace to everyone around her. Jackie was a beloved part of the Wolcott family; I will miss her gentle smile and our chats in the hallways of Wolcott.

My condolences to family and friends. Jackie was a colleague of mine at Wolcott Elementary School. She was very dedicated in doing the best for her students. Jackie was kind, caring, gentle, smart and professional to one and all. Her calm spirit and dedication will be missed.

I met Jackie through work at Wolcott elementary school, it was a connection I am grateful to have made. Jackie was such a caring, selfless, and giving person who strived to spread kindness with all she worked with. I am a happy recipient of that kindness, she was always upbeat and made sure I was the same throughout my day. We talked over many lunches about our children, food, Jamacia, and how we both had similar work ethics. I loved her laugh, it was infectious and always made those around her smile. I will be forever grateful for the friendship we built over the short time we worked together. I will hold onto our talks, her words of wisdom, and friendship forever on. Rest in peace, my friend.

May God bless all of you, and may you be comforted by your faith and happy memories of dear Jackie.
