Jacqueline Marie "Jackie" Ashton Wright

September 28, 1949 ~ May 30, 2022 (age 72)


Jacqueline Marie Ashton Wright, fondly known as “Jackie”, was loaned to us by the Lord on September 28, 1949. Having completed her work on earth and impacting so many lives along her life’s journey, Jackie returned to the Lord on May 30, 2022.  

Jackie was born to the late Jacob Robert Ashton Sr. and Marie Smith Ashton in Washington D.C.  When Jackie was an infant, her father relocated his family to Mount Holly, Virginia. Seventy-two years later, Jackie departed this life at her home in Mount Holly, Virginia.  

At an early age, Jackie came to know the Lord and accepted the Lord as her personal Savior joining Salem Baptist Church. She was educated in the Westmoreland County Public School  System graduating from A.T. Johnson High School in June 1967.  

In July 1967, she married John Clyde Wright. Three children, two daughters and one son, were born from this union. In her early career, Jackie worked at Mattatuck and Washington & Lee  High School both located in Montross, Virginia. Eventually, she went on to start a family-owned seafood business, J & J Wright Seafood, which furnished seafood for various restaurants and had customers that spanned all throughout Virginia. In 1993, she married Charles “Esau”  Wright. Two children, a daughter, and a son, were born from this union. Jackie and her husband,  Esau continued to run the seafood business right up until his passing in March 2022.  

Jackie was preceded in death by her husband, Charles Esau Wright; parents, Jacob and Marie  Ashton; sister, Brenda Ashton; sister-in-law, Alice Wright; and brothers-in-law, Tommy and  Curtis Wright.  

Jackie leaves to cherish her memories children: Adrienne Scott (Rodney), Karen Wright (Stacey), Jevon Wright, Lisa Wright, and Charles Wright-Carter (Eric); grandchildren: Brittany Johnson,  Tavon Wright, DeVonte Wright, Brandon Jennings, Zae Wright, Natalie Wright, Jeremyah Carter and Leah Hall; great-grandchildren: Elena Jennings, Jayden Wright, Lyric Jones, and Ariah  Wright; sister: Ida Sheppard; brother: Jacob Robert Ashton Jr.; sisters-in-law: Emily Ann Usual  (whom she talked to every morning), Dorenda Wright, Diane Taylor, Cindy Muslim, and Minister Victoria Wright; brothers-in-law: William “Chick” Wright, Herman Wright (Connie), Earl Wright,  Roland Wright (Galanda), Paymus Taylor Jr., Steven Taylor, and Lawrence Taylor; a host of nieces, nephews, and cousins; devoted and faithful friends: Mary Jones, Darius Fauntleroy, Troy  Henderson, and Mitchell Hackett.
