Jackie worked for DORS (Department of Rehabilitation) for 20 years, retiring in 2000. Being a mother and a wife were always the main priorities in her life. She loved her family deeply. Jackie also enjoyed many other things in her life, most notably, dancing, bowling, fishing, and traveling. She was also an avid St. Louis Cardinals fan and loved gambling especially playing the slot machines.
