"I am so sad to learn of Jackie's passing. She was so kind to me after my sister Nichole passed away. I am forever grateful for the friendship and kindness Jackie showed Nichole and the love and comfort she gave me when she passed away. I know she is free and flying amongst the Angels. Her beautiful smile and abundant heart are missed already. Jon Bon Jovi's biggest fan will be watching from above. My good thoughts and prayers are with Jackie's , friends and family.

"Precious Jac, I know you?re busy right now, reuniting with your mom and all your loved ones who went before you and today welcomed you ... as you ran and danced and laughed your way into glorious eternity, finally flying free. That is a beautiful vision and I?m thankful, for your sake; but oh the broken hearts here left behind ... ? I?ve been reading everyone?s posts and I feel the same way about you, Jackie. You brightened this world by your presence, and inspired all of us with your strength and courage and encouragement and love, your beautiful, loving birthday posts, your honesty and faith, your light-up-the-room smile. You paid me the greatest compliment when you would tell me I reminded you of your mom. Oh Jackie ... you were so very special to me, and the loss of you hurts so much. ? You were an angel here on earth, and now you truly have your wings. Please be our guardian angel, Jackie Tortoriello . We will always need you, always love you, and always carry you in our hearts. My prayers and deepest sorrow and condolences to your family and loved ones."
