Obituary of Jacqueline Iacovelli
Jacqueline Humphries-Iacovelli, a beautiful, loving, passionate, empowering woman, passed away peacefully at Francis House, on July 22, 2017, after a courageous battle with appendix cancer. She was born on June 23, 1961, in Exeter, England, County of Devon. Jackie and her family moved to the U.S in 1975 where they settled in Binghamton, NY. Jackie lived in the Syracuse area with her husband Gary for the last 26 years.
Jackie retired in 2016 after a 30-year career in the health care industry, most recently as Regional and Community Affairs Director at Excellus Blue Cross Blue Shield of CNY. She held a Bachelor's Degree from Wilkes University and an MPA from the Maxwell School of Management at Syracuse University.
Jackie will be remembered for her passion and love of family, friends, art and music. Her garden surrounding her home in Baldwinsville was her pride and joy, and her love of travel took her to 21 countries. She still remained close to her extended family in England.
