Jacqueline Voelkel, 61, passed away on Sunday, July 31, 2022 surrounded by family. Jackie was born in South Amboy in 1961, and resided in Iselin since 1986. Jackie’s life revolved around her children and family, and she fought every moment of her 13-year battle with cancer just for the time spent with them. Her favorite things to do were looking at the ocean, reading books, visiting small towns, and listening to Bruce Springsteen - all alongside her family. Movie and game nights were the events she loved most!

She is also survived by her sisters Joanne Murphy Zientek, and Colleen Creighton and her husband William; her nieces and nephews Jennifer Lucas and her husband Tyler, Katie Devine and her husband Dan, Leigh Stanckiewitz and her husband Keith, Ryan Voelkel, Kevin Voelkel and his wife Nicole, Nicole Voelkel, Rena Voelkel, Bryce Voelkel, and Rachel Voelkel and her great-nephew and niece William and Mary Kate Devine.
