She’s a TV personality and singer, while she’s perhaps known best for being a daughter of the late American singer-songwriter and actress Dolores Janney ‘Jenni’ Rivera Saavedra.
Early life and education
Jacqie was raised in Long Beach alongside her brother Michael, and sister Chiquis who has also become a popular singer and TV personality, by their mother and their father Jose Trinidad Marin; it was revealed in 1997, when Jacqie was seven years old, that her father had sexually molested her and her sister Chiquis, as well as their aunt Rosie.

Jacqie was 20 when her mother married her third husband, American retired professional baseball player Esteban Loaiza in 2010.
Jacqie was rather shy while growing up, and the reason behind this is believed to be the fact that her father had sexually molested her.
