A chance meeting and subsequent marriage of an African-American man in the military and a demure yet beautiful Danish-German woman in Copenhagen, Denmark, created the sensational Jaqueline "Jaq" Cherie Fleming.Though her birth mother was lost to the world tragically when she was a mere nine months old, Jaqueline grew up to become a strikingly beautiful, talented, and well-spoken woman with a big heart and strong aspirations. Raised in various cities including New York and Chicago, her true home is St. Louis, MO. Five mother figures helped encourage her in her dreams to perform and an incredibly large family, now consisting of at least twenty siblings, giving her the background and imagination to tackle and perfect a wide range of roles.She immediately took to the arts and began performing as early as age eight and by sixteen had landed her first professional role in "For Colored Girls" (Ntozake Shange). After finishing high school in New York City, she relocated to St. Louis where she received a full academic scholarship to Webster University and from there completed her studies with a degree in film and television from Columbia in Chicago. While in Chicago, she landed dozens of regional and national commercials, independent films, print and voice-over jobs and was honored with the prestigious Jeff Award, for best actress in an ensemble in Chicago which is the highest award received in the theatre community in the windy city.After appearing in Love Jones (with Nia Long and Larenz Tate) and Losing Isaiah (with Halle Berry), she decided to move to Hollywood per Halle Berrys advice for more film opportunities.
