Jackie L. Larsen loved animals, all animals, and had a particularly strong love for coffee. "It was 'guesstimated' that the coffee mug she so lovingly carried held approximately 32 oz.," said colleague Tech. Sgt. Rosalyn Anderson. Larsen, 37, of Tacoma, Wash., died of natural causes July 17 at Balad Air Base. She was assigned to Beale Air Force Base. Larsen, a paralegal and an 18-year Air Force veteran, was the 9th Reconnaissance Wing Legal Office's superintendent, based at Beale Air Force Base. As the legal office superintendent, Larsen managed the general law and military justice divisions, overseeing all aspects of enlisted training in the law center. She also was the principal adviser to the Staff Judge Advocate regarding enlisted matters. "Many people knew Tech. Sgt. Jackie Larsen as a military professional. They would say that she was dedicated, a real 'tough cookie,' and a 'no nonsense' kind of NCO," said Anderson. But she also giggled when she was in a silly mood, was protective of her family and had a love of deep sea diving, she said. She is survived by her husband, Scott.
