I attended North Shore Jr/Sr HS from its opening in 1967 through my graduation in 1972.
During that time Mrs. Jackson was my PE teacher, my cheerleading coach and my on campus mother. She would sometime bring Donna to school and Donna was a part of the school’s family.
She always made time to sit and talk with me.
I will always hold her dear to my heart.
My sincere sympathies to her family. Please know that Ellen Jackson lives in my heart and the hearts of many.
She changed my life for the better!

Mrs. Jackson was one of my favorite teachers at NSHS, I’m from the class of 72. Although I wasn’t very athletic, I did so enjoy her exercises and modern dance that she taught. She was very much a positive influence in my life.

Mrs. Ellen Jackson was my PE teacher as well as our Cheerleading Squad in early 1970’s. We had a group photo done for her back in the day at Tooley Myron Photography @ The Palm Beach Mall. We also had a get together years later & we designed a charm bracelet w,charms she would remember each of us by. I will forever hold these special memories of Ms. Jackson in my heart❣️ She had called me “Lil’ Bit!” Blessings to all those who were so fortunate to have had her in our lives! She was an AMAZING Woman❣️ In Loving Remembrance, Karen Lawrence Davis 1972

Mrs Jackson, you have always been my “Other Mother” since the 7th grade. You were always there with your encouraging words and sincere love. Mrs Jackson, you pushed me to be the best that I could be! I will forever cherish our many long talks, with you showing my family and I so much respect and attention. My dear friend and “Other Mother”, rest in peace. Until we meet again, you other daughter, Cathi Jackson.

To the family you have my deepest sympathy for the lost of a beautiful woman. Mrs. Jackson never allow her students to say I can't do it. I loved that about her. I admired having a black teacher who truly cared for her students. Althought she gained her wings, her sweet spirit will be in eveyone she knew. May God give her family/friends strenght during these difficult times.
