Jackie is survived by daughter Sommer, son Cody, daughter Hayley and husband Benny Rader, their father Chester Harkins, and the ones who stole her heart, grandsons Myles Carter and Benjamin Sebastian.

Jackie married Chester in 1980 and remained married for 17 years. Jackie lovingly devoted her life to her children.
Later in life, Jackie worked over 16 years in office administration. She worked with dedication, compassion and care and was respected by all those around her. She was honored with numerous awards for her faithful work year after year.
Jackie loved Jesus, her family, coloring and solving puzzles, Blue Bell vanilla ice cream, Coca-Cola, Casa Ole and John Mayer. Even in difficult circumstances, her sense of humor shined.
