MacDonald’s life tragically changed forever when she
received a call on March 25, 1988, informing her that her
daughter, Debi, had been brutally murdered in her home while
Debi’s 3-year-old daughter slept nearby. After discovering
the murderer had not been apprehended, Jacque began her
own relentless nine-year search for her daughter’s
killer; a seemly impossible undertaking driven by a resilience
and determination that only a loving mother could have.
Jacque knew she would find the “one person who knows”
who would have the information needed to bring the killer
love of Debi, Jacque never gave up and for love of Jacque,
her husband, Dennis, stood firmly by her side. In 1996,
Jacque’s determination and perseverance finally paid
off when “the one who knows” came forward with
vital information that led to the arrest and eventual conviction
of Debi’s killer nearly ten years after her death.
has become an inspiration and a beacon of hope for those
who have lost loved ones to horrendous crimes. She has fought
for victims’ right and has helped others as they struggled
with their own life-altering tragedies. Jacque now has a
television program called “The Victim’s Voice”
which highlights unsolved cases, the criminal justice system,
and the impact of crimes on families, among other issues.
“The Victim’s Voice” also broadcasts a
weekly radio show on KYOS 1480 in Merced, California. For
