Jacqueline Dotzler became an organ, eye and tissue donor upon her passing on April 24, 2014. 

Her sister, Justine Fedchak, shared this remembrance:

DotzlerJacqui was a beautiful person inside and out. She was loved by so many people and would do anything for anyone. Jacqui was a waitress in Batavia and was very into art and tattoos. She loved cats and treated hers as her babies.

I want people to know what a kind heart my sister had. She was such a loving and caring person and had such kind soul. I remember times that she would come stay over for weeks just because I was going through a hard time and we could have movie nights and just talk and laugh.

I honor my sister in so many ways. Since she was hit by a car and killed tragically, it came very suddenly and happened very quickly. We have a memorial site for her that is built with cats and stones all around it as well as birds and butterflies. She also will have a memorial up on the one-year mark of her passing in the area where she was killed.

She will forever hold a place in my heart and my step-father’s heart.
