They were wed in 1959 and raised 2 children, Kurt and Wendy, in the greater Memphis area. Jackie worked for the Internal Revenue Service as a tax examiner for 20 Years before her retirement.

Jackie always enjoyed the simpler pleasures of life including gardening, cooking, watching hummingbirds, and sitting outside with neighbors. The greatest joy of her life was her three grandchildren.
