I worked at Oconnor Hospital for almost 40 years and I knew Dr. Jackson the whole time. Whenever he would see me he would come up to me and we would have a lovely conversation, he was always so kind and so understanding. He never forgot to ask me how my son was doing. After he retired I missed him so much. He always had the best advice for me whenever I had a question for him. He will be missed so much. My condolences to his family.

My sincere condolences to Dr. Jackson's family. He treated my Dad in 1978 for heart disease. He not only was an amazing physician but also a compassionate and caring human being. Not only did he care for my Dad but he also made time to console, listen and give our family guidance through my Dad's last day and again at his funeral. If only there were more Paul Jackson's in this world, what a joyous place this would be. Dr. Jackson, you will never be forgotten, you will always occupy a place in my heart.

I'm sorry to read about the recent passing away of Dr. Paul Jackson. He was one of the medical doctors who treated my father when he had heart problems and a heart bypass operation in the 1970's decade. I send my condolences to Dr. Jackson's family.
