Glenn, was a true friend. I want for get the good times we had. One morning he came to my house said skinny Kenny you want to go get some breakfast? He also with his wife approval, gave me and my late wife a truck. He let God use him to help others. He was a man of few words, but a man who helped in need. A brother by a different mother. One who will be missed. Love you my brother, see you on the other side.

Sorry for your loss. I was married in the family even though things didn't work out with his son. Both of Glenn and Jeanette was always there no matter what happened.

Pastor Glenn. Invited me to a service at a church he was pastoring, when I went into the church you could feel love and joy. Pastor Glenn asked me to say a few words about the mission work God had called me into. I was honored to be able to stand and tell about God’s work but I was humbled by the love and support pastor Glenn and his church gave me. That same day someone wanted me to sing a song to which I replied oh no I don’t sing. Pastor Glenn stopped me right there and said if you are going to be in the ministry you are going to have to do a lot of things you don’t want to. Ministry is service and pastor taught me a great lesson that day that I still try to adhere to to this day. I will always remember pastor Glenn. As my pastor and mentor . Our prayers are with you Sister Jeanette and all your family

I've known the Jackson family for 30+ years, and I feel like I am also part of the family. Mr. Glenn was always a nice and caring person. One of my favorite memories of him was praying. Every night before we all went to bed ( or were supposed to) he would pray with all of us Becky, Amanda, Jeanette and myself. This wasn’t a common occurrence in my family but looking back at the Jacksons I realize how special it truly was. I lovingly say the man could pray, and as a child, it seemed like forever. However, I think that gives even more light on the man of God he truly was. I am sending all my love and prayers to the Jackson family.
