Jacqueline C. Boyd was born May 5, 1957, to Charles Watson and Ruby Mary. She was the 6th of 9 children. Preceding her in death were her father, her mother, her sister Carolyn Boyd, her sister Victoria Jones, her brother Gregory Boyd, and her life partner Steven Hall.
Growing up in St. Louis, Jackie was a true entrepreneur. She managed multiple locations of the Famous C&K BBQ Restaurants. She later opened her own business, Jackie & Sons BBQ.

Jackie was baptized and accepted Jesus Christ as her Savior early in life and was a member of New White Stone Missionary Baptist Church into her adult years.
