Our dear "Izet"- also known as Trevor Jackson, Sr. passed away peacefully Saturday, February 23, 2013 at UCLA Santa Monica Hospital, in Santa Monica, CA surrounded by his family. He was 63 years old. Known for his adventurous spirit and can-do attitude, Trevor will be most remembered as a beloved and fiercely loyal husband, father, grandfather, brother, and friend. Born in Clarendon, Jamaica, as a young man he studied the trade of masonry and welding - a passion that led him to work abroad in the Bahamas and Guatemala. His analytical skills helped define his approach to life and work. He settled in West Palm Beach, FL to raise his family and also began working for D.S. Eakins Construction in 1986 - a company he would work for the rest of his life. His work there was near and dear to his heart as were his colleagues. He enjoyed the daily challenges, problem-solving and ability to practice his rusty Spanish skills. While a man of many talents, at his core he was a very simple family man. He believed in putting your head down and working hard. He enjoyed tinkering around his garage, tending to his garden- including those mango trees, listening to reggae and country music, and having quiet dinners with his wife - Winsome, close friends, and family. As the patriarch of our family, his departure has left a hole in our hearts and forever he will be our "Pappa" Trevor and dear brother "Izet."
