Soon after graduation, Jackie married A.W. “Johnny” Chapman. They lived 20 years in military service before her husband retired and they moved to Florida. They raised their three children who now live in North Florida with their families. After Johnny’s death, Jackie married Hubert Owens. They were married nearly 20 years before his death in 2007.
Jackie was currently a member of the Orchard Community Church. She had also spent many years as a faithful member of the Madison Street Baptist Church in Starke, FL, where she taught Sunday School and sang in the choir.
