Not sure what to say?

To all of the Jacksons,
Rayma and my condolences, He will be missed and Eileen is as well as all of you are in our Prayers

As one of his many students at St. Jude, I can say that The Colonel was the kindest, most patient, effective math teacher I have ever had. I never knew he had a first name other than The Colonel! My heart felt sympathy to his family for their loss.

Many thoughts and prayers are with the family during this sad time. Colonel Jackson was the absolute best teacher I ever had. His guidance and encouragement as well as, going completely above and beyond truly helped me to be the person I am today. He is surely soaring with the Angels.

Tim, My condolences on the passing of your father. I have been away from St. Pete now for nearly 38 years but hearing the name Colonel Jackson resulted in a flood of fond memories. He was a great educator to many students and obviously left a positive impression with me. Please know prayers are with you.

Colonel Jackson was one of my favorite teachers at St Judes, I just loved him. Im so very sorry to hear of his passing, and will be keeping his family in my prayers. Semper Fi and Thank you for your service, Sir.

To the JACKSON family, my deepest condolences. Colonel Jackson was easy to look up to, admire, and respect. I knew he was a man of great conviction, faith, duty and honor. I was blessed to have conversations with him about school, life, and sports. He never taught me in class but outside of it, I learned a lot from him in just a few conversations. He was the type person you never wanted to disappoint, wanted to please, and wanted approval from. I guess that is why he was a great leader...

Colonel Jackson was a teacher of mine at St Jude's many many years ago. He was a wonderful man and left a lasting impression on me. He frequently enters my thoughts and I was thinking of him just a month ago when reflecting on those who shaped me over the years. May memories bring comfort to his loved ones during this time.

Dear Jackson Family,
The colonel will always remain one of our favorite people from our 10 years in Pinellas County. We loved him as a mentor and older friend as he and Eileen were part of our faith community, our teaching and coaching careers and became part of our family during my health problem. Tim and Nancy, we knew you best as students and athletes, and we grieve for your loss as we do for your Mom and other siblings, plus all the grandkids. But surely Jesus and the angels are...

Nancy and Tim, So sorry for your loss. I loved having your dad as a math teacher at St. Jude. He was the greatest one I ever had. Prayers for your family at this time.
