There are people we meet in life that leave a great impression on us. Mr. Jackson was one of those amazing people! He and my boyfriend, Hammer, spoke often. When Hammer got out of the hospital and retired, Mr. Jackson called everyday to check on him. Such a wonderful, caring man! It meant the world to us. Our sympathies to his family. Mr. Jackson will be sorely missed.

My brother and I knew Jim from school( Rostraver class of 66). We also knew his Mother. She attended our church services. We had not seen him in years. Was VERY sorry to hear of your loss. When my mother died, We found reading the 37th Psalms helped. Hope it brings comfort. Pass this along to your family.

I met Jimmy quite a few years ago, while I took care of his Mother Mrs Mabel at my job. He was a Sweet ,kind man. He was the number guy and enjoyed it very much. He always showed Me great respect and expressed his care for my grandkids and I. I enjoyed our lunch dates and talks. He always listened and would say *Enjoy today because tomorrow isnt promised to Us*. My heart is sad with this news. After speaking to him thurs. I wondered why he didnt answer my call on Monday. Hes gonna be sadly missed by many. Esp Myself . Keep watching over Me as you always tried to look out for Me.
