Her involvement in their lives while keeping a career was extraordinary. There were many days that Jacquetta spent working overtime to ensure that her children were able to participate in their own events. She was a hard worker and had perfect attendance while working for TWA. During her life, Jacquetta became an avid explorer, enjoying various foods and traveling the world with family and friends.

Butterflies had always caught Jacquetta’s eye. They were special and will be remembered by her family as a symbol of Jacquetta’s love.
