Jackie was an active member of the Salvation Army. In his earlier years Jackie was a fisherman. He enjoyed many years fishing with his lifelong friend Capt. Randolph Le Frense. For the last 22 years he was employed as a labourer with local 92 in Fort McMurray, where he met friends from far and wide.
