Age: 11
Age at T1D diagnosis: 8

Jacque is a very busy and fun 11-year-old, who is passionate about musical theater and plays piano, softball and just started playing trombone this past year. Jacque is also very active with her local JDRF Chapter, and has participated in JDRF One Walk events, Galas, TypeOneNation Summits and has also served as a JDRF Youth Ambassador for the past 3 years. Jacque hopes to become either a world-class veterinarian or Broadway actress one day, and doesn’t plan on letting T1D stop her. “Type 1 diabetes is something I have, but it’s certainly not something that has me.”
