Jackie was born on August 30, 1963 in Ranger, Texas, the son of James and Terrella (Powers) Simmons. He moved to the South Sioux City area in 2007. He worked as a Sales Rep. at Charlston, Inc. in Sioux City, IA.
Jackie enjoyed hunting, fishing, guns, the outdoors, helping other people, and watching the Dallas Cowboys and Nebraska Huskers football teams.
Survivors include his mother and step-father, Terry and JR Ewing of Texas; 2 daughters, Jaci (Trent) Goodrich and Jessica (Eric) Zwernemann, both of Texas; a step-son, Michael Cargile of Texas; 5 grandchildren; sisters, Debra Kay Dunne of Texas, Melissa (Dale) Hans of South Sioux City, NE and Tracey Jeanette Simmons of New York; and many nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his father, James Simmons; and a brother, Bobby Earl Simmons.
I remember plenty of talks with Jack. I remember dancing with him at his niece Heather's wedding. I remember him telling me how proud he was and he could not get over how beautiful his sister missy and his niece Heather looked. He was very proud of you and loved you both so much! He will be forever missed.
Jack was my first boyfriend and then husband at the ripe old age of 19. He was fun, happy, had a zest for life and as hard headed as they come. I remember the sweet, innocent love we shared. He will truly be missed.
