Charles Mack Jackson Jr.

Tulsa, OK - Charles Mack Jackson, Jr., [Bud], passed away peacefully, September 29, 2018, in Tulsa, Oklahoma, after a seven-year hard-fought battle with dementia.

He was born April 16, 1956, in Shreveport, Louisiana, to Mack and Anna Jackson.

Bud loved sports and was an outstanding athlete in baseball and football at Jesuit High School. As the left fielder, he caught the last out, resulting in the Flyers winning the 1974 state title. He lettered in both sports all four years.

Bud graduated from LSU with a Bachelor's degree in 1978. He was a member of Kappa Sigma Fraternity. He loved those Tigers.

After graduation, he spent a year in Snowmass, Colorado. He then made several career moves including following in his dad's footsteps in the sporting goods industry; but, found his true calling as a physical therapist. He courageously went back to school and obtained another degree in physical therapy. He worked for Tulsa Regional Hospital, then St. John Physical Therapy and Sports Rehab until he was diagnosed in 2012.

Bud met Sherry Buzzard, the love of his life in 1981, and they were married in 1982. They welcomed their first son, Stephen Drew, in 1984, and then in 1993, were blessed to adopt Benjamin Ross.

Bud was predeceased by his father, Mack; his maternal grandparents, John and Faye Spataro; his paternal grandparents, Charles and Maude Jackson; and his father-in-law, Jeff Muskrat.

He is survived by his wife, Sherry; two sons, Drew and Ben; mother, Anna Jackson; sister, Christina Irion; aunt, Marie Foley; mother-in-law, Imogene Muskrat; father and mother-in-law, Jim and Beverly Buzzard; nephew Val Irion [Blair); niece Catherine Thornton (Blake); other heartbroken in-laws, nieces, nephews, cousins, friends, and his beloved dog, Pudge.

Thank you to each and every caregiver who so lovingly cared for Bud in his last days. Words are not sufficient to express the void his death leaves in our family.

Funeral services were held at Moore's Southlawn Chapel Thursday, October 4th.

Burial was at Olympus Cemetery in Grove, Oklahoma.

Visitation will be held in Shreveport at St. Joseph's Catholic Church on Friday, October 12th, at noon followed by a Memorial Mass at 1:00 p.m.
