NEWTOWN, Conn. — Friends of a 27-year-old Newtown woman who died in a motorcycle crash will say goodbye to her at services on Friday. 

Jackie Schulz was killed Sunday afternoon while riding her 2010 Harley-Davidson Sportster on Currituck Road in Newtown, police said. She was wearing a helmet when she crashed into a utility pole, police said.

Services will be held from 4 to 7 p.m. Friday at the Honan Funeral Home, 58 Main St., Newtown, with a reception to follow.

"If you have a bike, ride it. Nothing would make her happier than looking down on us an seeing all of Main Street, Newtown, lined with bikes," her friend Ashley Hubbard posted on a GoFundMe page. "Fellow bikers are welcomed and encouraged."

Hubbard started the GoFundMe page to help Schulz's 4-year-old son, Cayden Richard. On the page, Hubbard fondly remembers her friend. 

"After spending the day with her beloved son going on adventures which included looking at cool old motorcycles (which they both adored) and playing with the new litter of puppy's at Peepaws house, she dropped off her sweet boy and went out on her bike," Hubbard wrote. 

Hubbard also wrote of Schulz's beloved son. 

"Anyone who knew Jackie (even the slightest bit) knew how much love and passion she had for life, but above all for her 4-year-old son Cayden Richard. Jackie was one of the best, patient, loving, 'cool moms' I had ever met," she wrote. 

Friends have raised over $18,000 on the GoFundMe in three days. 

Schulz was born in Danbury on Jan. 5, 1990, a daughter of Alain J. Schulz of Newtown and Donna (Gugliemetti) Schulz of Southbury. In addition to her parents and son, she is survived by two sisters, Kasey and Erica, both of Newtown; and several aunts, uncles, cousins and close friends. 

She graduated with a bachelor’s degree in business marketing from Western Connecticut State University. She worked as an expediter at Kimchuk in Danbury. 

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Newtown Animal Center, P.O. Box 475, Newtown, CT 06470 or
