Not sure what to say?

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...

My sincere condolences go out to the Jackson family. May God bless and comfort you in these difficult times.

CBM National Chair Emeritus

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...

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.

Kindness and generosity personified. Ronnie's incredible work with TROUPE Kids, and all kids of the Brazos Valley, was a gracious and loving gift. His engaging personality helped to lift the spirits of anyone who was in his presence. We are grateful for the legacy of love that he leaves us. God's faithful servant has been called home. Thoughts and prayers and caring thoughts are with you all.

Ronnie was a wonderful friend, colleague and will be missed greatly.He did so very much to support father involvement and led by example.He will be greatly missed. His good work will be remembered and his laugh and smile missed.

Kelli & Kids....In 1997 I went to work for the City of Bryan and met a great friend & mentor who encouraged me to serve in the Host program at Neal Elementary. He got all of us involved in the Executive Office at the City. It's funny now that I think about it, several people would take lunch hour to go Host at the different schools. He spoke so well of the boys and yes I remember when the first son met his wonderful wife. I heard MANY stories and have never seen more joy in a...

Thoughts and prayers are with Kelli and the entire Jackson family! What a wonderful gift that we all shared in the life of Ronnie Lee Jackson. Praise the Lord for his compassion, his service and his caring and giving spirit. May the Lord bless your family and keep you in the days and weeks ahead and grant you peace!
