Ryan Christopher Jackson (25), beloved son, brother and friend passed away, surrounded by his family, on September 18, 2013. A lifelong Floridian, Ryan was a graduate of DeLand High School and Santa Fe Community College. He also attended the University of Florida's College of Agriculture. Ryan was a tender hearted giver who loved so much
his family, his dogs, his music...he had a gift for making anyone laugh and everyone feel included. His smile could make anyone forget their troubles. Ryan is survived by his parents Jane and David, and his brothers, David and Drew. He has a large extended family, and many friends all of whom will miss him every single day. The world is a much smaller place without him. The family will celebrate his life with a service on Monday, September 23, at 1:00 pm at Deltona Alliance Church, 921 Deltona Blvd., Deltona, FL. In lieu of flowers, Ryan's family has suggested donations in his memory to Animal Advocates FL, Inc., P.O. Box 4321, Sanford, Florida, 32772-4321.
