Jackie was a few years older than me but i remember playing kickball at Glenview and wanting to kick the ball as far as she would kick it. She told me to aim my kick towards her house so i did and it really improved my kickball skills. We also played some sports together growing up and again, her talents and skills inspired me.
I send my deepest condolences to everyone affected by her passing especially Joe, Lu, Ronnie & Dan. My heart goes out to you guys and I will keep you all in my prayers.
