Jacqueline Lee Jordan was a multi-talented student who had an insatiable thirst for knowledge. Her life reflected a deep faith as seen in her involvement at her home parish of St. Edward and at St. Pius X High School. Jackie was an altar server, choir member and substitute accompanist during Sunday liturgies. As a freshman at SPX, Jackie earned straight A's in her Honors classes and was actively involved in many extracurriculars, including Choir, Band, Theatre SPX, as well as the Art, Anime, Culture and Culinary Clubs. Most of all, Jackie's love for the sciences was enhanced in the Science Club and fed her thirst to be a paleontologist.
