VERSIONS OF THIS BILL
TO EXPRESS THE PROFOUND SORROW OF THE MEMBERS OF THE SOUTH CAROLINA HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES UPON THE DEATH OF JESSIE LEE JACKSON OF BISHOPVILLE AND TO EXTEND THE DEEPEST SYMPATHY TO HIS FAMILY AND MANY FRIENDS.
Whereas, the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives were deeply saddened to learn of the death of Jessie Lee Jackson of Bishopville on September 5, 2015, at the venerable age of eighty-seven; and
Whereas, born to Lisbon and Essie Wilson Jackson of Bishopville in Lee County, Jessie Lee Jackson entered this world on August 7, 1928, and enjoyed the blessing of a large family, his siblings being Lisbon, Jr., Joseph, Loren, and Minnie Bell; and
Whereas, he graduated from Dennis High School, after which he entered the military and served two years before being honorably discharged. He then worked for Palmetto Oil Company for more than forty years and the Lee County Council on Aging for over thirteen years; and
Whereas, a man of strong faith, he attended Mt. Lisbon Presbyterian Church (USA) in Bishopville. Having worshipped there all his life, Jessie Lee Jackson had served in many positions for the church, including that of elder, trustee, and Father of the Church, a title he held from 2011 until his passing; and
Whereas, in addition, he was a Mason of sixty years' standing and attended Sandy Bluff #44 Masonic Lodge; and
Whereas, Jessie Lee Jackson considered it the greatest triumph of his life that he was able to persuade the lovely Ruth Mae Mack to become his wife. They proudly founded a family of five children, Irven, Vaughn, Cassandra, Vivian, and Shirley. The happy couple enjoyed more than sixty years together; and
Whereas, he leaves to cherish his memories his devoted wife, Ruth; his children, Irven Jackson of Bishopville, Vaughn Jackson of Columbia, Cassandra Johnson of Columbia, Vivian Blake (Curtis) Brothers of Washington, D.C., and Shirley (Jerome) Simon of Bishopville; nine grandchildren; and a host of other relatives and friends. He will be missed. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives:
That the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives, by this resolution, express their profound sorrow upon the death of Jessie Lee Jackson of Bishopville and extend the deepest sympathy to his family and many friends.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be provided to Mrs. Ruth Jackson for the family.
