Ronnie was a super person. I worked with him for several years at the Treatment Center in San Marcos. I learned a ton from him and enjoyed his happy personality. So sad to hear of his passing. Linda Johnson
I actually met Mr. Jackson and his wife when I asked him to speak at my Church for Black History Month, although we had exchanged pleasantries at many occasions involving youth. He accepted without hesitation and brought a very personal and enlightening talk to our congregation. His wife and youngest son was just as gracious and we truly enjoyed their fellowship. The entire family have the sincerest condolences from Morning Star MBC and our Prayer is that you will grow stronger in the Lord and know that you will meet your Loved One again. God Bless!
My sincere condolences go out to the Jackson family. May God bless and comfort you in these difficult times.

I have not seen or spoken to Ronnie since 1981, but for some reason, thoughts of him popped into my head today & I found this sad information. I worked with Ronnie for 5 years at a psychiatric hospital in Galveston where he taught me so much about empathy, caring & how to set limits with kids while celebrating their creativity & victories. Plus, he had such a great sense of humor & was such a great storyteller!!! Although I haven't seen him in years, I feel a little light has left our planet. I'm glad to see that he had such a full life.
I met Mr. Jackson after writing a letter about how teens didn't have anywhere to go and do things when I was a teenager. He listened to what I had to say and did something about it. He holds a special place in my heart and I will never forget how he made me feel. I just wanted the family to know that. I am truly sorry for your loss, he was a great man.
