Cousin Jo Ann was a very special lady. I always enjoyed seeing her at the Jackson family reunions in Mansfield. Jo Ann was lively, funny, and of course, beautiful. Greg and I send Reggie and the rest of the family and friends our deepest condolences.

I will miss my longtime friend, JoAnn. We had so many fun times together. Our husbands were co-workers and brought us together in 1976. May you Rest In Peace. God’s promises are sure , His mercies are always new, His plans are always good, and His love never fails. Praying for her family.
