Categories: Aviation, Tragedy

Countries: Scotland, USA

Born as Kimberley Ann Reina on 26 May 1962 in Harbor City, Los Angeles, Los Angeles County, California, USA, she was the daughter of Theodore Jay Reina (b.1932) and Betty Ellen Reina née Hulet (1932-2012).

She changed her name to Jocelyn in 1980 when she took up acting because “she thought there were too many Kimberleys and Kims in the acting field" according to her brother John Reina.

Our Picture Source and the Clipper Crew website gives more information about her including that she started working with Pan American World Airways in January 1988. Her married name was Jocelyn Maslac but she was divorced and residing in Osterley, Isleworth, when she died, aged 26 years, on 21 December 1988 whilst working as a flight attendant aboard Pan AM Flight 103 travelling from London (Heathrow) Airport to John F. Kennedy International Airport, New York City, when it exploded over Lockerbie, Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland.

She was buried in Plot Memories, Map1, Lot 166, Space 1 at Forest Lawn Memorial Park, 4471 Lincoln Avenue, Cypress, Orange County, California, USA.

She is also commemorated on both the Memorial to all the Victims and the World Wings International plaque that are at Dryfesdale Cemetery, Dumfries Road, Lockerbie, DG11 1HZ, as well as on the memorial cairn in Arlington National Cemetery, 1 Memorial Avenue, Arlington, Arlington County, Virginia, USA, where her name is carved as Jocelyn Kimberley Reina.
