Bria Jacks

Bria Marczianna Jacks passed away peacefully in the arms of her loving parents on April 3, 2014. Bria was born prematurely on March 12, 2014.  During her three short weeks with us she touched many lives and was loved deeply by family and friends. Her life was a gift to us that will live on in our hearts.

Bria is the daughter of Jason and Kasha Jacks of Hammond, WI.  In addition to her parents, she is survived by her maternal grandparents, Dale and Lynne Onsager of Blair, WI; paternal grandparents, Ray and Joanne Jacks of Thorp, WI; Uncle Randy and Aunt Diana Jacks of Shakopee, MN; Uncle Seth and Aunt Courtnee Onsager of Pflugerville, TX; and many extended family members. 

A Mass of Angels will be held at 4:00PM Thursday April 10, 2014. At Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in Hammond, WI; Visitation will be at 3:00pm until the mass time at church.

Because Bria loved Kangaroo Care and snuggling with Mom and Dad so much, we ask that memorials be made in her name to the Kangaroo Care Chair Program in the NICU at Children’s Hospital in St. Paul.

O’Connell Family Funeral Home in Baldwin is assisting with the arrangements. Please visit for online condolences/email hugs.
