Jackie Ortega: 1952—2004
Jackie was well loved. She had housing at the time that she died, and was still active at Mary’s Place. A Women in Black vigil was dedicated to her memory.
Jackie & her friend Queen are pictured in the 2004 Mary’s Place calendar, December:
“We are friends to the end.” Queen and Jackie have helped each other through some difficult spots in their lives, and they’ve come out with a strong friendship and a stronger faith: “God is good. God is great. We are all a product of God’s goodness.”
