Jacqueline Mosquera Obituary

Our beloved Jacqueline "Jackie", valiantly battled ovarian cancer for eight years. On February 19th, at the age of 46, she peacefully passed away at home surrounded by the embrace of her family and friends. Jackie's spirit was an embodiment of intelligence, thoughtfulness, empathy, and generosity, leaving an indelible mark on all who knew her.

Jackie was born and raised in Newark and then lived most of her life in Kearny. She earned her high school degree from Saint Vincent Academy, her undergraduate degree from Rutgers University - Newark, her Master's degree from Saint Elizabeth University and early childhood certification from Caldwell University. 

Her professional journey traversed significant paths. Beginning as editorial assistant at the Star Ledger, then assignment editor at Univision, she later transitioned to Telemundo before finding her true calling as a teacher. As an early childhood educator and later as a master teacher across Newark, Paterson, Bayonne and Morristown, Jackie's dedication to children reflected her profound love for teaching and fostering growth. She loved to travel, have fun and spend time with her family, her boyfriend, friends, and fur babies - Wookie and Luna. Jackie had a beautiful smile and the best sense of humor.

Jackie is survived by her loving parents, Jose and Teresa Mosquera, her siblings Iveth and Edwin, and her adored nephews Christian Mosquera, Sebastian Luna, and Mateo Luna. 

She was a vocal advocate for the rights of women, children, and animals. She was outspoken, genuine, and believed in empowering others to stand tall in the face of adversity, leaving an enduring impact on all whose lives she touched.

Jackie's parents and siblings wish to honor her through charitable giving and the establishment of an educational scholarship in her name. All proceeds will be split among charities that help children, women, indigenous people, and animals. In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to Jackie's memorial fund on GoFundMe: https://gofund.me/f60b0a54

Jackie's memory will live forever in our hearts and minds. A celebration of life mass for family and friends will be held on March 2nd, at noon at the Saint Patrick's Pro-Cathedral in Newark, NJ.
