The most fun Jackie has had as a grown-up is as a vocalist in a jazz band.

Through high school and college, Jackie has been a jazz singer, and since 2017, has enjoyed serving as the vocalist for the St. Charles Municipal Big Band, a group with direct links to the 1870 St. Charles Brass Band. Good-natured people who want to make music, the band members play concerts throughout the St. Louis area, but Jackie finds performances in senior and assisted living centers the most rewarding. Jackie and her husband are also parents of a very young daughter.
