She spoiled and loved her family. Jackie retired from Eli Lilly after 25 years working in their IT department and moved to the most beautiful home and land you could wish for close to Lake Cumberland. Watching their horses in the pasture and dogs running and playing was like a dream, along with the hundreds of hummingbirds she fed.
She was preceded in death by her father, Jack Jackson. Survivors include her husband of 34 years, Rick; mother, Fernrose Jackson Altum; son, Brett (Kelly) Sawyers; daughter, Dawn Rene (Doug) Koepper; granddaughter, Amanda Koepper; stepgrandsons, Austin and Alex Smith; stepgreat-grandson A.J. Smith; and siblings, Judy Hanlin, Harold Jackson, Jodee Lawson and Michele Rees.
