Jaclyn Squillace, 30, passed away August 24, 2018 at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital, New Brunswick after a long, hard fought battle with breast cancer that inspired so many.
Born in Rahway, Jaclyn was raised in Sayreville. She was a 2006 graduate of Sayreville War Memorial High School. She graduated from Middlesex County College with an A.A. in liberal arts and Kean University with a B.A. in psychology.
Jaclyn possessed a smile that would light up any room she entered. She was a smart and determined young woman who fought her illness as a brave fierce warrior with an iron fist.. Jaclyn was full of life and was ever present to help others also sick or in need. To that end, Jaclyn was the instrumental force in the birth of a charitable organization, not only to provide her with some much needed assistance, but as a way to give to others similarly situated. "Jammin for Jaclyn" is her legacy. Since its inception, her charity has immeasurably assisted those afflicted with illness and in need.
Above all, Jaclyn loved being a Mommy. Spending quality time with little Nicholas was always her number one priority. A loving mother, daughter. sister and friend., Jaclyn will be missed by all who knew and loved her.
Jaclyn is survived by her son, Nicholas, her parents, Denise and Ron Morgan, her brothers Michael and Mark, her sister Amber, and countless dear friends.
