Jackie Long, 86, went to be with the Lord on November 26, 2019.
Jackie started working as a buyer for Block’s Department Store. Soon, she began attending a small white frame church called E.49th St. Christian church. This was where she found her Savior, her life’s work, and her ministry. She became Pastor Russ Blowers assistant in 1957. They worked side by side in ministry for many years, including time at the church’s E. 91st campus. She also worked with other pastors there and coordinated countless weddings. After retiring, Jackie continued to volunteer at the church in Benevolence, Wheels in Motion, Heritage Place, Hannah Circle, and Golden Harvest ministries. She was also on the board of the E91 Church Foundation.
