I met Sweet Jacqueline when I first moved to Iowa City. She was friends with my beloved cousin Donita. Jacqueline was truly a sweet and loving person. She had a quiet way of letting you know that she cared about you as a person. I remember the Mary Kay makeovers and seeing her at local social events on campus. No matter where I saw her she always had a big smile on her face. She truly loved her family and especially being a mother to her children. They were her pride and joy. I pray that they all find comfort in knowing the positive impact their mother had on many of us who have known her for so long. Her journey on earth is done but her journey in heaven has just begun. Rest In Peace Friend until we meet again. 🙏🏾
This is Faith Forte, your Aunt in Fort Smith. Jackie was a miracle baby. She was the fifth child born to your Grandmother Quinzola and her Dad Jeff. Their first four sons did not survive childbirth. We all adored her. She came to visit us on her 17th birthday.
She was lively and energetic and there was no doubt she favored her Dad. Oh how he loved her. She shared the births of her children with us. She was so proud of you! She poured everything she had into each of you. She really proved to be a ":lively stone". Her life epitomized her selfless love for others and the very special relationship she had with God. I am in awe of her God kept her through out her serious health issues and how she trusted Him completely. She truly had a more abundant life as a result. Celebrate her homegoing ! You can see her walking streets of gold, wearing her crowns, enjoying a heavenly family reunion, and most especially worshipping Jesus! Your Mom has left each of you a beautiful legacy of love and faith. Remember that together each of you make the McCoy family...hold tightly to her memory and each other.xoxo
I wish more than anything that I could be there. Jacque brought so much joy to my life. All of our love is with you today.
Without Jacque, I don't think I would have survived the University of Iowa. Her extraordinary and unconditional love welcomed me and my daughter, Alex, into her family's life. I am forever grateful that I knew such an exceptional person.
We are so sad to hear of Jacque’s passing. Jacque was elected as BPW Iowa’s Vice President in May 2021. While we had only worked together for a short time, she brought energy and creative ideas to our leadership team. Jacque was passionate about the mission of BPW Iowa to develop and empower women. Condolences to Jacque’s family and friends. May your faith uphold you and your memories comfort you in the days ahead. Cathy Hines, BPW Iowa President

They spent many nights in my home, when they were small. Jackie was a wonderful women and the world had lost a special light. I’m unable to attend the funeral because of physical aliment. However I will be with you in spirit. May God Bless this Wonderful Family. 🙏🙏
