Jacqueline Lee “Jackie” Eskins is permanently vacationing on Heaven’s beaches on Friday, February 28, 2020. Jackie was known for her outrageous humour, fancy jewelry, love of all animals, her straight-shooting mouth, and how well she loved her family. Jackie will be missed beyond compare. Where there is great love, there is great loss! The love of Jackie’s life was her husband, Jim, who she lovingly called ‘Fussy.’ They were best friends and had a fairytale love story until her final breath. Jackie and Jim spent their weekends together working in the yard, doing home improvement projects, hanging out in the garage, and jamming to old country music songs. Jackie’s other favorite activities were swimming in her pool, working on her tan, shopping, spending time with girlfriends, mowing the grass, collecting sparkly trinkets, watching HGTV and the Real Housewives. Jackie was not only an incredible mom and role model, she was also a best friend to her daughters: Chelsey Stacy, Billie Kimmell, and Kimberly Eskins. Jackie was the best “Yaya” to her grandkids: Hayden and Paisley Kimmell. She adored the kids, spoiled them rotten, and accidentally taught them their first cuss words. Jackie started waitressing at a young age, continued waitressing at Starks, The Harvest Table, and eventually became a stay-at-home mom. After the kids were grown, she worked at Odell Grade School as the head cook. Her cooking skills are unmatched! She also sold Avon, helped organize the Odell town garage sales, and coached Odell grade school cheerleading for a year. Jackie was the sun that everyone orbited around. Thankfully her light will shine on in everyone who loved her. Family and friends are invited to pay their respects from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on Wednesday, March 4, 2020 at Hager Memorial Home in Dwight. Funeral services will follow at 1:00 p.m. She will be laid to rest in St. Paul Cemetery, Odell, following the funeral. Any and all monetary donations should be made to Livingston County Humane Society, 21179 E 1358 N Road, Pontiac, IL 61764 or the Community Cancer Center, 407 E. Vernon Avenue, Normal, IL 61761.
