Jacquelyn (Jackie) is a third-generation family member and shareholder of the Sheetz family. She and her husband, Tony, currently reside in Maryland with their two children (Carter, 6 and Olivia, 3) where Tony works as a Real Estate Site Selector for Sheetz, Inc. Jackie earned her undergraduate degree in Psychology from Indiana University of PA and her master's degree in School Counseling from Loyola College in Maryland. She worked as a school counselor at both a high school and middle school until the birth of her son, Carter. After Carter was diagnosed with autism at the age of 2, Jackie decided to stay at home and focus full time on advocating for her son and his needs.
Jackie has always had an interest in becoming involved with the family business in some manner and is happy to be a member of the Family Council. She works primarily on the Philanthropy committee and helped create the Kathleen and Gerald Sheetz Memorial Grant program. This program allows younger family members to award a grant to an organization of their choice after completing a number of volunteer hours. She also helps create educational and social activities for the annual family retreat. Jackie is looking forward to working more and expanding her responsibilities within the Family Council.
