So very sorry to hear about your Mother. Actually shocked is the feeling. We had grown fond of her during the passing of Dave.
Mama Charlie was a source of encouragement and inspiration for me in the department. She was always there for me, especially in matters that pertain to course registration and basic requirements for graduate students. This is quite painful. May her gentle soul rest in peace. She was a blessing.
I worked with jackie for about 3 years, and she was like a mom to me. I had the honor of sharing christmas and thanksgiving with her at the ECE main office, and she always treated me like her child. I loved her jokes and her humor, and I am so happy I got to experience my time with her. She will be missed.
We met only once but you will forever be in my thoughts. Really grateful for watching over Haris Zulhimi, my son, and he has so many good things to say about you.
May God keep you safe and happy wherever you are.
It is very sad to write this message to you, knowing that you will no longer be with us. You were a wonderful person. I will remember you with love for your excellent service as an academic advisor since I arrived at this faculty. We love you, Jackie!
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
I've only been in Grad School for a semester but throughout the entire process of me applying, she helped me by answering all the questions I gave her and she did so with a tremendous amount of patience and kindness. I kept apologizing for asking her so many questions and she just told me "You don't have to apologize, I am here to help." She really made me feel so welcomed as I was navigating this new chapter in my life. She'll be dearly missed.
I am deeply saddened to hear the news of the passing of Jackie. She was such a kind-hearted person. Like all the graduate students, I have a lot of email communication with her. But like very few, I met her personally on the very first day of my in the department. Before starting the Fall 21 semester, when I reach here, I came to look at how the electrical engineering department is. I decided to meet Jackie right from India for her continuous help, support and guidance. Initially, I thought that Jackie is a male. But out of my astonishment, when I first saw her sitting in her office, I got to know that it is she. We talked for around half an hour, I still remember. I told her that I was sorry for sending her emails now and then with a lot of queries. But she politely replied that it was her job to respond to us, the graduate students. Her kindness touched me, it was precious. She even said that she needs to visit her doctor in Dallas often. Her husband passed on during the summer. When I got to know that news, I felt sorry for her.... she must be so helpless being alone and sick at the same time. Once I sent her an email - I was tensed and wrote something about my worries for the future - I would remember her kind response for a long.
"You will have a bright future. Don’t worry so much about it. You have a lot to look forward to."
I wanted to meet her at least one more time before I graduate. But I guess that was not my destiny.

Jackie was always a ray of sunshine in the ECE department. She helped me when I applied in spring 2021. My biggest memory of her is, when we first met, she pointed out that my last named sounded French - an observation not many people had pointed out. She will be missed.
We will miss Jackie Gray Charlebois.
