Jackie was passionate about her family and showed deep love for anyone fortunate enough to call her family or friend. She constantly prioritized her loved ones needs before her own, refusing to see anyone have to struggle if there was anything she could do to help. Nothing gave her more joy than to see the laughter and smiles on her children, grandchildren, and numerous nieces and nephews faces. She had a rare compassion that extended to anyone she saw in need, without judgement or prejudice Jackie cared deeply that all people deserved to be loved and experience joy. She even said she would still be cheering for Kevin Durant.
Because of her faith in Jesus Christ, her family and friends take comfort knowing that Jackie has been reunited with loved ones who have passed in the presence of our Heavenly Father and His Son. Jackie is survived by her loving husband Pete; son Robert; daughter Becky Reining Maze and son-in-law David Maze, and two grandchildren, Ashton and Easton Maze.
