Jacqueline J. Reissig, 18, Carmel, passed away April 2, 2016. She was born March 11, 1998, in Indianapolis, the daughter of Jeffery and Anna (Ogden) Reissig.

Jacqueline Jay Reissig was a free spirit with a beautiful soul. Jackie was a great friend and a loving daughter that could cheer anyone up with her beautiful smile. She enjoyed being around people and experiencing happiness. She was determined, assertive, and undeniably loyal to the ones she cared about, and never judged anyone for anything and made sure people were comfortable. She loved to have fun, but also loved being in her pajamas, while watching movies. She could make you laugh until your stomach hurt and anyone who had the privilege of knowing her were the luckiest people in the world to have such an amazing friend. Jackie had a good heart and was so elegant and will never be forgotten.

Jackie was a senior at Carmel High School. She was a talented artist, loved taking pictures, and enjoyed going to concerts with friends.
