Not sure what to say?

Howard was a wonderful neighbor. I would marvel at his collection of antiques and objects d'art. We had some good laughs together!

He had many wonderful devoted friends and one of those is Jane Williams. She unselfishly gave of her daily time to be with Howard and was with him (among other friends) at the end. I appreciate everything she did (and his other friends) for him. Bless you.

It was such a privilege to have Dr. Jackson as my teacher at VCU. Always positive, always encouraging, an an excellent mentor to his students. He possessed a rare gift that only comes from the love he had for his work and a genuine desire to help others. I am so sorry to hear of his passing.

I will always be thankful for you being a part of my life Dr. Jackson. You have always been there for me---the birth of my first child, earning my bachelors degree, my national board certification ceremony, my mother's memorial service and everything in between. I will truly miss you and will continue to make you proud. You were a good and faithful servant.

I will be lonely knowing that he is not here but I know that he will be rewarded and a welcome addition to the realm of angels that dwell on high. May your wonderful memories comfort you at this time. Ruth Shue McCarty

Dr. Jackson was a very special man. I was a student at VCU from 1974 to 1976. I was so impressed with him and his warm and caring teaching style, I took every class he taught. He was smart and witty, and he told great stories about his travels in the Army and in India. He was the epitome of professionalism, and instilled pride for secretarial work in many young people. Long after my graduation, I had several opportunities to work with him, and he was still the same wonderful teacher. He will...

Dr. Jackson was a great mentor and educator to the Old Dominion Chapter of IAAP and other chapters as well. He not only encouraged us to keep going with our education and certification but also helped by holding classes. He wouldn't let us give up when we were overwhelmed. He was a very special man.

It was my pleasure to have know Dr. Jackson through business education organizations and conferences. The first time I met him I was a young middle school teacher who was attending her first national conference. I was very intimidated by his mere credentials. He went out of his way to make me feel welcome and important. This started a long association and friendship. He was the true southern gentleman. Such a gifted and talented individual. He will be missed.
