  1. Just received the news of you leaving us and my heart is so saddened. You will always be a true treasure to me. My most cherished cubby mate of when we worked together. I will never forget how you were there for me when I was going through a very difficult time coming home from an overseas deployment and falling apart in front of you. You just sat there with me, no judgement, just letting me be me and letting me know it was ok to just do what I needed to do to get through the moment. To get to being better. You were one of my main reasons I survived it and managed to defeat the darkness. I love you sweet girl and I will always have you in my heart. Love Nia.

  2. Jackie’s sudden passing left our CPS family unit with a hole in our hearts. She was so kind, compassionate and caring to those in our unit and those families and children she served. My favorite memory, of so many, are when Jackie and Orlando were practically the same person as they finished each other’s song lyrics and movie lines. 4 of us in a little office was cramped but allowed us to grow closer and create a fast bond. I saw Jackie grow from a somewhat timid caseworker to a confident and well respected caseworker. Jackie’s contagious laughter would have us all laughing in just minutes. Jackie was an amazing person who left a big impression on all of us. She will be sorely missed.
