Jerry Lee Jackson, 57, of Stringer,MS, passed away in his home Friday afternoon, August 2nd, 2019, after an ongoing heart condition.
Born in Jackson, MS on January 1st 1962. He resided in Jasper County, and spent his entire life a Mississippi resident. He loved living out in the country, and enjoyed a simple and minimalist life, way before that was a trend. He served in the National Guard for six years and was talented in mechanics as well as electrical despite having no certification for it. His father was a carpenter, and he acquired the skill to build stairs, decks, pretty much anything he put his mind to including an entrance ramp for his mother when she needed help getting to a from her house. Truly one of the kindess, most generous hearted person I have ever known, ironic that it was his big heart that failed in the end.
Memorial Services for Jerry will be held at Memory Chapel of Laurel on Monday, August the 5th at 5:00 p.m.
Preceded in death by his father T.E. Jackson and brother Robert " Bobby" David Jackson.
Survivors include his mother Linda Jackson, brothers; Michael, Tommy, and Donald Jackson, and sisters; Linda "Sue" Kelley, Tammy A. Purvis, Mavis Graham, and Janelle Hammond. He is also survived by many nieces, nephews and cousins.
Jerry will be missed terribly, and live on thru our memories, for his life was cut abruptly short on Earth. The saying, The good die young, never rang so true. I know now he walks along with our Lord.
