West Chester resident, Jacqueline Angelucci, 34, earned her angel wings on April 7th, 2021. She was born on September 22, 1986.
Jackie loved her family more than anything else. The beautiful people in her life included her wonderfully funny and compassionate husband, Larry, Jackie's "mini-me," daughter Aubrey, and her sweet baby, Bryce, born on her birthday. During the pandemic, Jackie's loving family lived every moment for each other, generating joy and creating new memories.
Jackie loved to cheer on The Phillies, Flyers, Sixers and most of all, her beloved Philadelphia Eagles. She treasured her personalized Jon Dorenbos video, sent to inspire her in her courageous battle against breast cancer.
She attended as many tailgates and games as she could. Home openers offered Jackie new hope each season. And the Birds winning the Super Bowl was her dream come true.
She loved to travel both inside and outside the United States. Even during her most difficult weeks, Jackie never stopped dreaming up and planning road trips. Her second home was Ocean City, New Jersey. She called it her “happy place” because it made her so incredibly happy through the years. This is where Jackie spent most of her summers with her grandparents while working many different jobs on the boardwalk at the shore.
She was an exceptional writer, armed with an uncanny wit, and you'd consider yourself lucky if you ever heard her deliver a speech.
She adored Adam Sandler's films and music and found humor as a means to endure any suffering.
From a young age, she knew she wanted to help people. A double major in both Psychology and Spanish, she educated, counseled, and was loved by her many students. Social worker by trade, she cared for many families, particularly those with children in crisis. Jackie's deep reservoir of love and compassion for young people and her concern for their safety and happiness is her lasting legacy to the lives she touched.
Jackie's most extraordinary gift was her ability to make the people she knew and the people she helped feel as though they were the most important persons in the room. Over the years, many people claimed her as their "best friend" and she will forever be known as the one and only “Aunt girlfriend”. She possessed a talent for making people laugh and feel cherished. Her sense of humor, luminous smile, and laughter lit up many rooms and softened many hearts.
Jacqueline is survived by her adoring husband, Larry; her beautiful children, Aubrey (13) and Bryce (1); her loving mother, Reina Lori Martinez Mooney; her father, Robert F. Mooney Jr; a brother, Justin Mooney, and “sister” Ressie (Joe) Popowicz. She is also survived by her Nana, Immaculata “Maggie” Martinez. She will also be missed by her many aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends who will remember Jackie for her endless kindness, honesty and strength.
At her request, there will be a private service for immediate family and friends. A celebration of Jackie's life will be held in June to remember her and share the laughter that she brought to so many.
Our lives are richer for having known Jackie, with the bright, red lips. Watch over us, Jacqueline, we love you!
