Dr. Jackson and his family moved in to our neighborhood in the early 60's and his children attended school with my sister and brother. I remember their youngest child was just a beautiful baby pretty baby. Each and everyone of my family members remember him jogging by on the street some times walking a little he was a man that kept to himself. As the years have gone by I would see him in Meijer store on Henry once in a while and would always say hi to him he always remembered my family. My Condolence goes to his family and children he will always be remembered by Denise, Douglas, Dawn, Darwin and Derek Brown.

Dr. Jackson is credited with saving my life when, as a very sick baby, I was rushed into ER. He was always so encouraging to me over the years about reading and learning. One day he and his young son picked me up for his (the son's) birthday party. He showed me an example of impartiality: a little, poor, white boy who needed to see a color blind world as it should be. Thank you, Dr. Jackson, for your selflessness towards me and countless others.
