Jacquelyn and her husband Tony have six children. They include a set of twin boys who both live in Colorado – Mitchell, a First Lieutenant in the Army, and Dominic, who works in software sales; a daughter, Allison, who works as a CNA at a dementia/Alzheimer facility; another set of twins – Joe, a freshman at Michigan State University, and Rachel, a freshman at Grand Valley State University, and the youngest son, Jimmy, a junior in high school.
