It is with heavy hearts and great sadness that we announce the passing of our dearly beloved JACKIE “LA 49er” QUINTANA. Our Matriarch, Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, sister, aunt and friend, was called home to be with our Heavenly Father on Thursday, February 22, 2024 as she was surrounded by her loving family.

Jackie was a beautiful, loving soul. Her love and devotion for her family, especially her grandchildren, was beyond measure. Jackie was a cook for Hernandez Elementary school and Los Alamos National Laboratory. Her generosity and caring for others had no bounds. Her heart of gold and contagious, beautiful smile immediately flourished strangers to friends and extended family. Jackie was an avid San Francisco 49ers fan, dubbed as “LA 49er”. She had a passion for camping, family gatherings and cooking. If you went to visit, it was a sure guarantee you wouldn’t leave unfed. Her incredible sense of humor and glorious contagious smile will be greatly missed.
