    First of all, my deepest condolences to the Vreuls family and may Jackie rest in peace. I still can’t believe Jackie has passed away, because she is the most energetic, powerful and cheerful person I’ve ever know. I have lots of memories with her and it always makes my heart warm. When I heard this sad news from Jon, we had first snow in Sendai here and it’s very cold and freezing like we lost sunshine. Jackie was a person like sunshine. I have to admire her positive attitude to cultural differences and being kind and sweet to everybody. I miss her a lot, but I hope she will enjoy her loving surfing in the heaven and watch Jon and girls from up above. Love you Jackie, you are always in my heart.

    My deepest condolences to Jackies family, news of her passing leaves me with a heavy heart and is very hard to take. During my recient conversations with her, things seemed to be hopefull for recovery, Its just so very sad. She was taken way to soon. I met Jackie while she lived in St Thomas, she would be commonly spotted like a wild women just screaming up and down those mountain roads, sidewalks or whatever on her little scooter with a Giant smile and Laughing all the way, her hair and some kinda sun dress just blowing all over, yelling “Heyyy” to anyone she knew as she blew by. We had a close, tight net circle of extraordinary friends. Togather we had amazing and ridiculously fun adventures, seemingly every day or several times a day. Flying all over in helecopters, diving for lobsters, surfing, sailing, island bar hopping on a sport fisherman, snorkling, camping on Anagoda for New Years, spending time on Richard Bransons Nekar Island... and much more. Jackie, lol, she made every moment just a riot for everyone she was around, laughing at just eveything, never missing a moment to getting us fully envolved in some very silly play. One story... Lars ( he passed away some years back, and is greatly missed) and Jackie came over to my house, I was in the bedroom and heard them come in...They were just laughing so loud to the point of crying, I kinda quickly came out of my room to see what was going on... then WACK! WACK! WACK! right in the face with Eggs! Lars and Jackie each had a carten of eggs in thier hands and were shortly just fully engaged in egg warfare... If thier are eggs in heaven when those two get togather, man, the Angles are going to have a really big mess to clean up! If Jackie was in your life she made it a lot better! We are all so blessed to have known such a fun and amazing person, words just can’t express her radiance. She is now with God and the Angles...Watching over her girls, family and friends... making Heaven, not just a good place, but now a very Fun place to go! God Bless Jackie, and all.
