Jocelyn received her Bachelors of Science degree in Business Administration at North Adams State College in 1984, and later completed a Diploma in Accounting at Bentley College. She worked in finance and data management for over 20 years. On September 11, 2010, she married the love of her life, Peter William Kennedy, originally from Walpole, MA. Jocelyn was a devoted family member who joyfully shared her life with her parents, siblings and many nieces and nephews. In addition, she was adored by many neighbors and friends wherever she was. She loved her summers in Barnstable on Cape Cod and Westport Harbor. She never missed a good beach sit and a ride in a boat. She loved her New England Patriots, Bravo TV, volunteering, skiing and traveling around the world. In 2012, Jocelyn and Peter made a new home in Cary, North Carolina. There, she was known for her neighborhood Pumpkin Carving and Kentucky Derby parties. She did not let illness define her, and lived with purpose as fully as possible. Jocelyn had a strong faith and was a life-long Catholic. Jocelyn is preceded in death by her parents, Richard and Dorothea Jordan. She is survived by her husband Peter, and brothers Rick, Chris, Glenn and Paul Jordan, and sister Cindy Jordan Sweetser. She will be deeply missed by her sister-in-laws Sandy Jordan, Peggy Jordan, and brother-in-laws Arthur Sweetser and Gabriel Lozano Porta.
