Jacquelyn Michele Whited (Jackie) of Hendersonville passed away unexpectedly, yet peacefully, at home April 28th, 2016. She had been fighting an autoimmune disease that affects the liver since diagnosed at the young age of 17, although to nearly everyone, she appeared to be a healthy, vibrant 23 year-old. Battling the physical and emotional effects of this disease and other conditions following a traumatic accident in June 2013 finally took their toll on our beautiful Jacquelyn, and on this sunny spring April day, she was taken to heaven.

About Jackie

When family and friends describe Jackie, they say she was outgoing and lived life to its fullest, cherishing each day. She was beautiful, happy, energetic and colorful and was always smiling and laughing. In fact, many say her smile was super-infectious. Jackie was a strong, optimistic young woman and left a positive impression on many during her short 23 years.

In addition to spending time with her family and friends, she cherished many things, including animals. Jackie had a deep love and passion for animals, especially cats and horses and occasionally spent time at local shelters. She loved to listen to all genres of music, especially 80s and 90s tunes, watch scary movies and create art. Jackie started riding horses at the young age of 8, occasionally worked at the barn, taught others how to ride and did not stop until her accident in 2013. She was also very artistic and enjoyed writing short poems, painting and drawing. Jackie was a great big sister to her little brother Josh and enjoyed kids and babysitting tremendously, especially when “Aunt Jackie” was able to hang out with her niece, Shae Logan Cox.

Jackie’s family

Jackie leaves behind her parents, Tina and Robert Whited, two siblings, Jessica Cox and Joshua Whited and her two beautiful cats Munchkin and PP. She is also survived by her niece Shae Logan Cox and by several grandparents, including Robert and Virginia Whited of Gallatin (paternal), and Linda Logan and Nelda Case of Hendersonville (maternal).

    Tina, Robert, Jessica and Joshua, you have my deepest sympathy. The loss of a child is like no other you will ever experience, since I also have walked that path. Please, know that there are no right or wrong ways to grieve, it is whatever makes you feel better at that point and time. When you need to cry do that, when it’s time for laughter it definitely helps, when it is time to question, that is okay as well, when it is time to be angry, know that is also a natural emotion!

    Tina, whatever, whenever, if you need to talk, know that I am here for you, only time will make it bearable and faith will eventually see you through…. God bless your family and friends at this time! Much love

    I am so sorry for your loss. My husband, Cameron, and I were home visiting for the holidays in December. Luckily, we were able to see Jackie, one last time. She was a very sweet, loving person. She will always be remembered in our hearts.

    Linda, Tina and family,

    I am so sorry for the loss of your beautiful angel. I have never lost a child or grandchild…I came very close to losing my son and I can’t imagine the pain you are going through. I know Jackie is going to be missed terribly and now Heaven is a little sweeter! I pray that God wraps you all in his arms of comfort and gives you a peace that passes all understanding. Will continue to pray for you all!
