I think this is a black footed yellow sac spider in the genus Cheiracanthium https://bugguide.net/node/view/456163

Cheiracanthium is known for its long front legs and their black feet. I was looking for a nice yellow one with a plump abdomen like your one, but I failed to notice that the one in the link I included was missing its front two legs. – Sorry – If they are attacked and grabbed by the leg, spiders can detach the leg. It can grow back again when they molt.
– What do you think of this one. – I am not sure which of the species you have.
