"Jacqui brought peace and happiness to everyone that she touched. She was a wonderful massage therapist. She brought good humor and demanded good tunes at every juncture in life," said Erik Yingling, Jacqui's cousin.

Jacqui worked as a massage therapist at Riverside Day Spa and Salon in the French Quarter. Her boss told us she will be deeply missed.

"I just saw her like 3 or 4 days ago — and - and oh my gosh, I can't believe it. I was feeling really sad the whole night last night and this morning I am like I 'm going to miss - I 'm going to miss her coming in," said Hoa Chau, the owner of Riverside Day Spa & Salon.
