Jacqueline "Jackie" Johnson enlisted in the Marine Corps in 1967 and worked as a Military Journalist for three years and loved it! Most of her time was in the States writing for the base newspaper, but she also spent 18 months in Okinawa. Some of the articles Jackie wrote while stationed in CA were published in private papers.
After her military service, Jackie attended Franklin University and received a Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration with a major in Accounting. She spent her career doing cost accounting, taxes, and financial statements for several companies and retired in 2011. Jackie took 18 months off before she realized living the retired life was not for her. She decided to go into security and is working overnight at the main gate for a Facebook Data Center and is still doing taxes for her family on the side.
Jackie has PKD (polycystic kidney disease) and has been doing hemodialysis three days a week since 2022. She has a wonderful perspective on life and keeps moving. Jackie is an avid reader, loves to travel, and enjoys knitting – sweaters being her specialty. Will you help this lovely lady continue her desire to live life to the fullest?
Jackie has enlisted the help of a Veteran's organization called DOVE Transplant which is helping in her outreach to find her life-saving kidney donor. DOVE will assist all prospective donors throughout the process and make sure they do not incur any out-of-pocket expenses related to the evaluation or surgery.
