Jacquelyn was born June 10, 1974, in Albany, New York. She was the daughter of Dr. Lillie Beasley Glover and the late Major (Ret.) Herman W. Glover, JR. She grew up in Orangeburg, SC as a member of Williams Chapel AME Church and an affiliate of Evening Light Church of God in Laurens, SC. She joined First Baptist Church of Glen Arden in Upper Marlboro Maryland after relocation to Washington, DC. Jacquelyn attended the Child Development Learning Center and Felton Laboratory School on the campus of SC State University. After graduation from Wilkinson High School, she attended North Carolina A&T State University, Greensboro, NC and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Architectural Engineering. Additional educational preparation includes a Business Leadership Development Certificate from John Hopkins University, Baltimore, MD; and a Master of Science degree in Engineering/Construction Engineering Management, The Catholic University of America, Washington, DC.
Jacquelyn spent 26 years working on several types of engineering and architectural projects. She served in the construction realm in leadership roles such as principal (CEO), partner, managing director, project manager, senior facilities engineer, as well as architectural engineering coordinator for private and public sector clients. She was a business development professional and a construction manager at heart. Her current position was Vice President, Business Development, Delon Hampton Associates, Chartered, Washington, DC/Baltimore, MD/Silver Springs, MD.
Jacquelyn was an exceptional daughter, godchild, niece, cousin, and friend. As we move out of our unhappy “state-of-mind” which followed her sudden departure, we have found comfort in knowing that she left a huge footprint that will last a lifetime.
Jacquelyn was preceded by her father-Herman W. Glover, Jr., godfather, Rudolph R. Glover, and grandparents.
