Jackie touched so many people throughout her life. She lived life to the fullest. Wherever Jackie went she lit up the room. She was selfless, putting the needs of others ahead of her own, even at the end of her life. As the Founder of a support group for women living with breast cancer in Mexico, “Cancer de Mama Clinic,” she leaves a lasting legacy.
