Jacquelyn “Jack” Eva Marchand (Del Rosario), age 33, born, June 17, 1983 in Manila, Philippines, at rest on May 10, 2017.

Preceded in death by her grandmother, Barbara Taylor; grandfathers, Leonardo Del Rosario and Dennis Prince Sr.; and her faithful canine companions Cedric and Raider

Left to celebrate Jack’s memory are her husband, Ryan Marchand of Sterling, IL to whom she was committed to since March 2004 and married in February 2009; sister, Jennifer Prince of Seneca, IL; father, Charles Taylor Jr. of Plainfield, IL; grandparents Charles Sr. and Roberta Taylor of Joliet, IL; mother, Joy Taylor of Crest Hill, IL; father, Tim Prince of Peoria, IL; grandmothers, Leonarda Escubil of Manila of the Philippines, Karen Prince of Bourbannais, IL, and Sheila Woods of Joliet, IL; as well as numerous friends.

Jack graduated John C. Birdlebough High School (Phoenix, NY) then earned a bachelor’s degree at Illinois State University (Normal, IL).  She was a standout athlete in golf, taekwondo and especially fencing.  She enjoyed watching classic films with Grandma Barb and television comedies with Ryan, listening to music, watching sports (particularly baseball - The Chicago Cubs and Anthony Rizzo) and hockey, making delicious home cooked meals, sewing and knitting scarfs and growing a prosperous garden. 

Jack was a terrific person who was beloved by those whose lives she touched.  She had a charismatic personality and was a selfless individual.  Her exceptional judge of character helped her choose a few close friends who rewarded her with happy relationships. She instilled in people, especially her husband Ryan, a calm manner and taught them the importance of patience.

Jack graciously gave to others. Whether it was her personality, time, or objects, she expected little in return from her good nature. She had a knack for picking up the most minor of details; it made her the gift whisperer. 

“She walks in beauty, like the night, of cloudless climes and starry skies.”  Lord Byron

A celebration of Jack’s life will begin on Saturday, May 27, 2017 with a memorial visitation at Tezak Funeral Home, 1211 Plainfield Road, Joliet from 1:00 p.m. until the time of service to be held in the funeral home chapel at 5:00 p.m. Cremation rites have been accorded.
