I just saw this and I am saddened by the loss of my dear cousin Jackie. I have such fond memories of her. We went to school together and had our graduation celebration together. She always had a beautiful smile on her face. My thoughts go out to the family. Love Jodi Dodgion.

Warm greetings of sympathy to Jackie's close ones.
It's a blessing that I could be her friend for over 30 years. She visited in Finland a few times and we often met in the USA, also. Jackie was diligent to keep in contact with letters and cards. There's a feeling of longing left for her, but also thankfulness that she has reached the goal. Rest in peace, dear friend.

Jackie was light and warm friend. I remember her from my trip to WA 1985 and later. She and Kay visited Finland and us in Turku 1986. My dad remembered that those young girls had living faith already then. We had great moments together. Jackie sent us letters during many years. We are thankful for her friendship. Now, she has reached the eternal life.
Our condolences to the family and children.

We were so saddened to hear of Jackie’s passing. The memories I have of my dear cousin and her family are so positive, always happy with a smile! The visits to Washington to visit in years past bring back some very happy memories! I remember one trip in particular, we met them at the beach in Lincoln City and what a great time we had!
Our condolences go to all of her family and friends as I can only imagine the loss you are all feeling.

We send our love and prayers,

Keith and JenniferTormanen with Micah, Emma, Logan and Abigail and Liam Worrad

My heartfelt condolences to you Corey, together with your children.

I had a priviledge to know Jackie for more than 20 years; got to spend many unforgetable moments with her on my many travels in the USA. In 2011 also my husband learned to know her when we were in the USA together.

It was only a couple of weeks ago I had a video call with her and its hard to understand that she no more calls or sends a message to me.

But its a comfort to me that I have no doubts of Jackie's Christianity. She is another anchor for me, a reason to strive on this narrow road to Heaven so that some day I will see her in Heaven's glory.

Jackie touched many lives with her tender, loving and forgiving heart, and I've been blessed by her friendship.
May God comfort all of her family and closest ones, today and in the days to come! His promises are great.

So sorry to hear about Jackie's passing. My blessings go to her family and friends. Jackie was my boss when I worked at Rockford Homes. She was so kind and patient with me while training me on some of her duties. She had a beautiful smile and a love for the lord and everyone around her. She always had a sparkle in her eye and got so excited when things pleased her. She kept in contact with me even when we all went our separate ways. I know she will be missed by everyone.

Please accept my deepest sympathy and prayers for comfort on the passing of Jackie. She joined the staff of Educational Service District 112's print/communications department in the early 1980s and was one of our hardest workers and most compatible of employees! Always on time, on task and on point! We loved her love of family (she'd often bring little brothers and sisters by to cheer us up and remind us we were really working for children)...we loved her for her hard work (she always finish jobs perfectly)...and for her happy attitude (she exuded joy). I ache for our loss, but rejoice in her reunion with Our Father.

Please accept my deepest sympathy and prayers for comfort on the passing of Jackie. She was such a joy and hard worker when she was employed by Educational Service District 112 in the early 1980s. I hired her for our print/communications services at the ESD and she was one of the BEST hires of my career...always on time, on track, and on point. She accomplished so much on her shifts and found new ways of increasing productiveness. But, more importantly, she brought joy, fellowship and her deep faith to the PR team. We loved her and admired her for her love and care for her younger brothers and sisters, whom she frequently brought by the office. Her passing is our loss, but God's joy in reunion!
