Journalism. We believe it should help you live a better life.

That’s why we spend a lot less time on publishing mug shots and a lot more time helping you understand the employment market, figure out how to spend more time with friends and family with our events calendar, and what you can do to help businesses that have opened up. Make no mistake…we aren’t shy. We tackle the big stuff, like COVID and issues around race.

And if you believe in the value of journalism — that it should help, not exploit — please consider becoming a paid member of the Racine County Eye today. We can’t do this work without you.

Jacklyn Marie Frick, 32, died suddenly from a brain aneurysm on March 21, 2020, at Ascension Columbia-St. Mary’s Hospital, Milwaukee. She was born in Racine on May 13, 1987, the daughter of David and Mary (nee Van Swol) Frick.

Jackie was a 2005 graduate of Case High School. She was employed at Serendipity Preschool and Child Care Center as a daycare teacher. She was an active member of Hope City Church. Jackie loved the Lord, and had a huge heart for helping people. She also cherished her dog, Cocoa. She enjoyed staying active, training and running for many 5ks and longer races, including a marathon. She was an enthusiastic champion of the annual MS Walk. Her engaging smile, delightful sense of humor and legendary stories entertained all her friends and family.

Jackie will be dearly missed by her parents; sister, Jennifer Frick of Aurora, CO; grandmother, Marie (Lajeunesse) Van Swol of Manitowoc, WI; her best friend, Melissa Hoffman; and loving aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends. She was preceded in death by grandparents Dorothy and John “Jack” Van Swol and Richard Frick.

Private services will be held at Hope City Church, with Pastor Tylre Butler officiating. Plans for a Celebration of Life will be announced later. Memorials may be sent to the family.

Please send condolences to Maresh-Meredith & Acklam Funeral Home.
