    I am deeply sorry for the loss of Jackie. He was a great man and good friend of my family. I loved speaking with Jackie. He always teased me about my winter artic boots. Told me they were not in style. I told him they were good enough for my Dad Jack Lockhart so they are good enough for me. He laughed and said what a great men my Dad and Preston Mathews were. Jackie was one of a kind and will never be forgotten. Sending love, hugs and prayers for the family.. May God comfort you in this difficult time.

    Jackie will always be remembered in a most positive way. He left for his family and friends a tremendous legacy of what life is really is all about….”building friendships and relationships.” He never met a stranger and a he was a true friend to all. I am proud to call him my uncle.
