A Tribute to Jacqueline Magee

1 August 2019

It is with deep sorrow and regret that Vela Microboards Northern Ireland acknowledge the untimely death of our long-standing valued Board member, Secretary and friend whose contribution to Vela Microboards will be irreplaceable. Jacqueline's personality was larger than life, she was clever, kind, funny, cheeky called a spade a spade and had a tremendous zest for life. She particularly wanted to change the world for people with disabilities, their families and carers both within her workplace and within Vela Microboards. Jacqueline had links within the Statutory, Voluntary and Private sector which greatly benefited Vela Microboards. Jacqueline made things happen. She had a clear vision for the needs of under-represented people and responded appropriately getting support to those who needed it. As Vela Mircoboard Secretary, Jacqueline was an avid promoter of the organisation. Her determination, enthusiasm, humour and craic will be sadly missed by each and every member of the board and the many individuals we work with, for whom Jacqueline was an outstanding ambassador.
