Dear Norma, Dave and I were so sorry to hear about the passing of your dear Glen. He was always so gracious and kind to us and always had such a happy smile. Our love and prayers to you, Norma, and our thanks again for your warmth and understanding when we were experiencing our loss. Your gentle kindness was so appreciated. I wish I could give you a hug but we are in the MTC preparing to go to Rochester, New York (Palmyra Temple)!!! Thanks for paving the way for us.

We know you understand the glorious plan for eternal life but lonely days are long. We pray for your comfort and peace. Our Love, Dave and Kris Jackson

This world lost an amazing man. I consider myself lucky that I knew him and had the honor of being a part of his family. Glen was a man of integrity, he is one of the most generous people I know. He accepted me for who I am, and never passed judgement. Glen always had a smile on his face. He was an amazing Grandpa to my kids and I am so sad that they only got a few years of playing with him. I am grateful that they got to spend time with him weekly. I am not a fan of Tom & Jerry, but that was something special that he was so excited to watch with Jaxon. We will tell our kids stories of Grandpa always. Glen was a man that I could spend hours talking to. He was a man filled with knowledge and wisdom. I will miss hearing him say, "Hey Jer" as it is a phrase that he said EVERY me we saw him and this will stick with me forever. I will hold on to all the memories we had traveling, playing games, picnics, the list goes on. Glen was a man that put his family first, everything else could wait. I am so grateful that I married into such an amazing family and I got the opportunity to know Glen for 12 years.
This is a reminder that life is precious and you never know what the next minute will bring. I am forever grateful for my family and friends that have helped and loved my family, especially these past few days and I know will continue to do just that as we mourn the loss of an absolutely amazing man.
Much love my friend, you will be missed in our home.

He will be remembered fondly by all who knew him through the Tour business. He planted many gospel seeds and was a missionary to the tourists, Thank you for your knowledge, kindness, and kinship--

Glen had a way of lighting up a room by simply walking into it. I had the pleasure of working with him at the tour office, and the day was always brighter with him there. I admired him greatly and so truly honored to have known him. He was such an example of love, joy and happiness, and I will always remember what light he brought to everyone around him.

Norma, My condolences to you. I remember your active participation in the NCOAGA when I was in the Guard. Glen and you were a big part of our Guard family and I value the time we had together.

I have no doubt that he will continue to be a guide and a light in your lives - just in a different way.

I'm always going to remember when I was little and my mom would say we're going to Grandpa's and then I would say “is it the 7-eleven Grandpa?” We would travel for an entire day to your house and then we would at some point before leaving to go home make a trip to the 7-eleven by your house. You would let us pick out 10 of the little candies from the bottom shelf, whichever ones we wanted. I would look forward to it so much. I remember the time my pickup broke down right in the middle of moving and the back end was full of my things. You picked me up and went with me to the repair shop and to go get a rental. A week later I bought a car and we returned the rental. We drove around afterwards talking about girls and music and the new car. It was fun. I going to miss the games and the way you could sometimes ask your dice to roll a certain number and then they would. I'm always going to feel close to you and I look forward to seeing you again someday.
