The youngest of six siblings, Jackie grew up in a small Kansas town where everybody knows each other. She was raised in the First Baptist church and decided to commit her life to Jesus at the age of eight. It wasn’t until junior high, though, that her relationship with God grew into an intimate friendship.
In 2018, Jackie married her high school sweetheart, Grady. They both graduated from Kansas State University the following year. They have a newborn son, Joel and a 75# fur-baby, Koda.
In their free time, Jackie and Grady like to pitch a tent and go camping. The couple also loves to travel and have been to Thailand and Nicaragua, as well as several places within the states. They hope to grow their list of international travels throughout their marriage. Jackie enjoys sewing, cooking, and reading a good book.
One of Jackie’s favorite Bible verses is James 1: 2-3, 12. These verses have given Jackie strength through many hard times and continue to encourage her when trouble arises.
