In Memoriam: Jacqueline Otis

Share This:

CSUEU members and Cal State Fullerton employees are mourning the loss of a fierce leader – Jacqueline Otis. It is never easy to say goodbye to a family member, and that is what she was to many within the CSU Employees Union and Cal State Fullerton.

Otis was known at CSUEU Chapter 317 – Fullerton and across the CSU system. She developed a positive working relationship with numerous campus presidents, management in human resources, faculty, staff, students and sibling unions across the campus. She engaged with many individuals at regular CSUEU board meetings, socializing with other chapter officers and members. A highlight attending meetings in Sacramento was shopping at Macy’s so she could add to her stylish wardrobe. Meetings consisted of sharing work and family stories of trips and adventures with her cherished family. She was heartbroken when her mother passed, but what kept her spirits up were her three amazing grandchildren. Otis was proud of her daughter LaTania’s accomplishments and career path. Her smile grew when she shared stories of being a grandmother. Her unconditional love for her precious grandchildren truly made her life complete. Her work ethic, public service and unselfish giving to others will live on within them.

Otis worked 20 years at AT&T before starting her service at Cal State Fullerton. She retired in December 2021 after 25+ years at CSUF. There is no way to honor all that she accomplished, but whatever work she did, she reached higher. Our deepest condolences to personal family members, the Titan family and the CSUEU family.
