Jacquelynn D. Schwartz La Clair, 31, passed away unexpectedly on Monday, July 18, 2011.
Born Nov. 10, 1979, in Palos, Ill., Jacquelynn graduated from Arizona State University in 2002. This is also where Jacquelynn met David La Clair, the love of her life. Jacquelynn loved kids and especially helping underprivileged kids. It was this love that led her to volunteer for and then work for the Boys and Girls Club of America upon graduation. This included leading up to her being the director of the Boys and Girls club in Bisbee, Ariz., from 2002-2004. When David moved to Virginia for work in 2004, Jacquelynn followed six months later. In 2006, David started Insignia Technology, a local defense contracting firm. Jacquelynn was his second employee. Insignia has received numerous local and national awards for its success and much of this can be attributed to Jacquelynn's impact as the business has grown.
After a year-long engagement, Jacquelynn and David were married just under six weeks ago on June 4th, 2011, at a beautiful ceremony on the water in Yorktown with more than 175 family and friends in attendance. This was the most incredible moment of their lives. They left for a two week honeymoon on June 11th.
Jacquelynn was a beautiful and loving individual that made a positive impact on every life that she touched. She always had a kind word and smile for everyone she met. She was the most thoughtful of individuals – always placing others ahead of her. Jacquelynn was active, and enjoyed a variety of activities. Her favorites included boating with her husband, David, and adoring their 18 month old Labrador, Ginger.
Jacquelynn represents the best in all of us and will be with us forever in our hearts and souls. Her legacy will reside in the thousands of individuals that she has touched through the years and the positive impact she has made on their lives. There is no doubt that the world is a worse place without her in it. Jacquelynn – you will never be forgotten.
Her survivors include her loving husband, David L. La Clair; parents, John and Beverly Schwartz; brother, Garrett (Maria) Schwartz; sisters, Christy (Dave) Williams, Jennifer (Ruben) Sandoval, Lisa (Brad) Evenson, Amy (Alex) Mackenzie; grandparents, John and Ruthe Schwartz; in-laws, Charles and Claudia La Clair, Chip (Audrey) La Clair; and many nieces and nephews whom she loved and adored dearly.
