Ms. Jackson was one of my co-workers at the School for Creative and Performing Arts. She was a most kind and caring person. She was always working with and for the students and supported the rest of the staff in so many ways. The world was better because of Ms. J. You will be missed.

She was and remains a beautiful woman inside and out. I have known Ms. Jackson for 25 years since North Fairmount Elementary School. She encouraged my gift at a young age and we then went to SCPA together. She was my family. She was always everyone's biggest cheerleader. Ms. Jackson encouraged everyone and supported and nurtured our gifts and for that I will forever be grateful. Thank you Ms. Jackson May you Rest in Heaven ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤

I am deeply sadden to hear about the passing of Ms. Jackson. She was a phenomenal person who I was thinking about just a few days ago. She helped restore an old jacket of mine that my grandfather gave me. The lining had torn in the sleeves, and I was afraid to admit that I had torn this new gift to my parents. She took the coat home and fixed it for me. And, that small act of kindness meant so much to me. I still have that jacket and I will always remember Ms. Jackson whenever I wear it.

She was a wonderful, genuine person. My condolences to the community she inspired, her friends and her family.
