Together they had seven children and resided in Oxnard. In 2004 Jennie retired as the principal X-Ray technician of UCLA.
While she was proud of her work, her retirement allowed her to relax, support and appreciate the loved ones around her to the fullest. As the matriarch of her family, Jennie lead them with her faith and devotion to God. Her strong will, passion and desire created a solid foundation for the Acosta family. With her accepting and loving nature she was adored and known as "Mom" to many besides her children.
Always young at heart, Jennie enjoyed family parties, watching films, living near the beach, and Bingo. But nothing measured up to just spending time with her entire family. Jennie was a remarkable person and will remain in the hearts and forever missed by all of her family and friends. Jennie was a loving and beloved sister, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother.
She was preceded in death by her husband of 28 years.
Jennie is survived by her five siblings seven children, 13 grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren.
