Born in Kittanning, Pennsylvania, Jackie spent her childhood and college years on the East Coast. She attended Salem College in West Virginia where she followed her passion in teaching by obtaining her Bachelors in Education and continued her higher education at the University of West Virginia where she started her Masters Degree.

A loving mother and homemaker, Jackie was a remarkable cook/baker and enjoyed preparing meals for her family and friends, especially during the holiday season.
