JACKSON, Keva Keva Lynn Jackson, 61, of Melbourne, Florida, entered into glory on August 28, 2021. Keva will be lovingly remembered as a woman of faith in Jesus, courage in the face of trials, and unconditional love that overflowed from her joyful heart.

The beauty of her soul shone to all around her.
