It is with a heavy heart that we announce the unexpected passing of Jackie Pozenel on Saturday July 24, 2021 at the age of 51.
Jackie was a Registered Nurse that spent her earlier career in labor and delivery; later working at the UHN Toronto Western Hospital Emergency Department and Princess Margaret Hospital outpatient oncology. Jackie had a reputation for being compassionate, caring, and showing empathy to the most vulnerable of patients she cared for. Certified as an Occupational Health Nurse, Jackie most recently worked at the Toronto Police Service supporting the police force during the Pandemic.
Over and above her career accomplishments, Jackie was an honest soul; she led with her heart, and was always willing to help others. She was someone that you could rely on and trust. Jackie was also a huge animal lover and advocate for adopting and finding them new homes. She loved to travel and visited many places around the world, loved adventure and live entertainment, but don't forget her wacky sense of humor as well.
Jackie is beloved sister to Matt, beloved step-mom to Brittany and grandma to Carmyn and Caydence. Jackie leaves behind family in Toronto, Louisiana, and Slovenia. Jackie will be missed deeply.
Service will be held at Cardinal Funeral Home on Saturday August 7, 2021 from 10am - 1pm
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to PAWS ABOVE or Toronto Humane society
Due to the current Covid - 19 restrictions in Toronto that allow a maximum number of guests to attend a funeral, the service details will be kept private and attendance will be by invite-only.
