Hello My Name Is … Jackie Troup

Jackie is my oldest sister- we are 14 years apart. I have the fondest memories of her always spoiling me from as far back as I can remember! When I was little she would take me to Snyder’s drug store for cherry cokes in her green mustang. One of my most cherished pictures of myself was from a trip she took me on to see Santa at the renown downtown Dayton’s. Growing up she always baked me these gumdrop cookies- they have always been a favorite because they are like nothing I have ever had and completely addicting! Jackie is also my daughter Allie’s Godmother (pictured below) Jackie will always be the best biggest sister I could ever have!
