November 14, 1982 – May 17, 2020
Allyson Lynn Jackson, also known as “Ally,” was born on November 14, 1982, in Berkeley, California, to Barbara Parker Jackson and Allen Jackson, III. Allyson loved to read and won many spelling bees at school. She learned how to swim at a young age, becoming a licensed lifeguard, and teaching swimming lessons as a teenager. She took ice skating lessons, participated in many competitions, and won her first trophy at the age of 6. Allyson obeyed the Gospel of Christ at the age of 10 at East Oakland Church of Christ, Oakland, California. Her most recent membership with her family was at Helen Street Church of Christ, Fayetteville, North Carolina.
Allyson and Anthony “Tony” Eashman married November 5, 2010. They expanded their circle of good friends in Tennessee, Texas and North Carolina due to Tony’s military duty assignments. To this union, Andrew Jackson Eashman and Ashton Cole Eashman were born. Allyson loved being a “boy mom” and made sure her boys participated in a range of sports and activities.
Allyson pursued her passions and began an online business as an event planner while completing her studies for a bachelor’s degree in Hospitality Management at East Carolina University. Allyson enthusiastically made goodie bags for her boys’ classrooms and daycare for every holiday and occasion.

Allyson took two distance education classes I teach at ECU's hospitality program. We've not met in person, but we exchanged emails. She did an excellent job in both classes, especially in one class last year - she aced the class with the highest score. From the self-introduction she made in the beginning of the classes, email conversations we had, and her course work, I saw her as a wonderful mother and wife devoted to her family, and a driven student with a passion for learning. Rest in peace, Allyson.
