Dear Nancy,
Glenn and I received your holiday note and then heard of Bobs passing. We were in Chicago with Adam & his new wife last weekend or we would most definitely have attended the service. Glenn would like to talk to you if you could message him your number

Bob was the true definition of what good person should be. He was also a hard working professional in education who had the interest of students, teachers and parents in mind at all times, a special person. Very proud to have had the pleasure of knowing Robert Jackson.
