Sioux Falls

Victor Jean Jacquot went to be with the Lord on Monday November 27, 2023.   He passed away peacefully at home in his sleep surrounded by his family at the age of 75. Vic was a consummate story teller and always ready with a fresh tale of yesteryear and the history of Sioux Falls. Vic was born on August 22, 1948 in Casper, WY, to Victor & Margaret (Sellers) Jacquot. As a child Vic lost is father in a tragic car accident.

Growing up, Vic moved across the Great Plains states, first to the Billings, Montana area,then attending high school in Mandan North Dakota. Vic was raised by his Step Father, Judd Booth and Mother Margaret. They lived in several towns across the Dakotas including Aberdeen, South Dakota and Mandan North Dakota. Eventually Vic settled inSioux Falls, South Dakotawhere he lived for over 50 years. Vic had the opportunity to be a part of the SD Civil Air Patrol and several other civic activities in his youth.

In his youth Vic developed a fascination with Radio broadcasting. He was an avid listener of radio his entire life. While attending Sioux Falls Collage he had the opportunity to work at Sioux Falls radio station KISD. He also worked at KELO in radio and television announcing.  His on-the-air name was Johnny Knight. During those times he had the chance to meet many interesting and famous people who came to Sioux Falls for events and concerts.  These experiences were many of his fondest memories and best stories.

In his late 20s Vic trusted Christ as his personal Savior. This was a transformational moment in Vic’s life. From this point on in his life he was a dynamic witness for Christ, never missing an opportunity to share his personal testimony of Christ’s redemption with anyone willing to listen. Vic became active in a small local church in Sioux Falls, located on East 41st Street.  At that time the name of the church was Sioux Valley Baptist Church.  Vic was instrumental in the growth and out-reach of the church.  Vic made many life-long friendships through the church.  Vic married his wife, Vickie, at the church on January 2, 1982. Together Vic and Vickie served as volunteers and faithful witnesses in several local Sioux Falls Churches and through the Gideon’s International Ministry.

In the 1980s Vic started a business “Vic Jacquot Financial Marketing.”   The business served agricultural focused financial institutions with various marketing and operations services. The agency was his pride and joy and his clients were some of his best friends. He invested a tremendous amount of time to sit down with his clients and share long conversations about diverse topics. This built strong decades-long working relationships with many of his clients. Vic also worked with Nordstrom’s “Under the Hood Show” radio broadcast and “Ask the Motor Medics” newspaper column and enjoyed being part of their team.

Vic loved Life! He was a consummate traveler having traveled extensively to many states across America and multiple countries abroad. Through his work he had the opportunity to visit almost every county and many of the small rural towns of the Great Plains and Midwestern states. He also enjoyed many hobbies including  walking his two Golden Retrievers through Riverdale Park, taking bicycle rides around the Sioux River bike trails and hiking and fishing.

Vic was a gifted writer and story teller. He often regaled his friends and family with stories of Sioux Falls and of his various travels and adventures. He wrote text for ministry and business projects including extensive advertising copy.  Vic created multipleadvertising campaigns such “Hometown Banking With Your Neighbors And Friends”and “Banking On A First Name Basis.”  These campaigns and others were used extensively in small community media outlets across the Midwest. 

Grateful for having shared his life are his wife Vickie, son, Michael, three sisters, Judy, (husband, Gayle), Linda and Terry all of Texas, many nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews, cousins and friends.
