As I have stated before, I am the oldest of 10 children, 7 boys and 3 girls.

Yesterday, my 4th brother, Jerry, passed away at 72 after a long illness. Jerry
is the one on the right bottom row in photo. I am the one in the left in the bottom
row. Jerry graduated from Mississippi State University with a degree in
Mechanical Engineering and worked 4 years with DuPont. Then he attended Ole
Miss, earned a degree in Law, and practiced law for many years. His hobby was
collecting vintage cars, his favorites being Corvettes. He will be missed.

Other brothers in the photo are Joe, Carey, Hugh, Byron, and James.

Friend to all,

C. E. Jackson Sad

My condolences to you and your family. I sit in the middle of 8 siblings. 2 older brothers and one older sister gone now. I know the feeling of seeing those we love pass. God bless you and your family.

I'm sorry to read of your loss. Losing a brother is difficult at best. My condolences to you and the rest of the family as well as all his friends.

My sympathy on your loss!

Was he active on the Corvette Forum? Perhaps I knew him by screen name over there.

Jerry's funeral was held today and many family and friends attended.

Thanks to Carl, Larry, Jim Bloomfield, Rick, Jim Fogle, Frank, and Don
for the encouraging comments. Don, I am not certain whether he was
a member of the Corvette Forum.
