My heart goes out to my family and to all of my Uncle's friends...may God be with you. We will miss you Uncle Ben as we know you are at peace now along with my mom, your sister Joy, whom passed on in May of 2018. You were such a kind-gentle soul that has left a non-erasable mark on me has a youngster in the sport of fishing. I will never forget how much patience you had with me teaching me so much in such a short period of time while visiting you in the Alaska wilderness. You sure knew how to land the Chinook, Coho and Sockeye just to mention a few!
Rest In Peace my Dear Unle Ben.

Your Nephew, Tommy

I spent a lot of my younger years at the Jackson’s home, Mrs Jackson always made chef style meals and Mr. Jackson was always helpful and tried to teach you mechanical skills in which he was so good at. Could fix anything and tried to teach you the know how,. Such a great family that I so enjoyed growing up with. I remember when Mr. Jackson owned the gas station on North Market. If I had car trouble he would always tell me to bring it to him, and he would always give me a cheap price to fix my problem, probably less than what it cost him to do it. But he was just a kind and giving man, will miss him dearly. Rest in piece Mr. Jackson 🙏🙏🙏🙏
