Kenneth Ray Jackson, 64, of Chicago, passed away on August 8, 2020 at his home. Kenneth was born January 2, 1956, in St. Louis, MO. In 1999, Mr. Jackson married Tammy in Chicago, IL. Mr. Jackson worked and retired from Chicago Embroidery. That man is a success – who has lived well, laughed often and loved much, who has gained the respect of intelligent men and the love of children, who has filled his niche and accomplished his task; who leaves the world better than he found it, who has never lacked appreciation of earth’s beauty or failed to express it, who looked for the best in others and gave the best he had.
Mr. Jackson was preceded in death by his infant daughter, Jeanine Jackson; parents, Arthur and Gladys Jackson; one sister, Jewel Weekly; and two brothers, Larry Osborne and James Jackson. He is survived by one brother, Samuel Jackson; children, Tiffany (Ryan) Diorka, Nicholas Jackson, Andrew Jackson, Joseph Jackson, and Matthew Jackson; grandchildren, Cameron Jackson, Serenity Jackson, Joslyn Jackson, Noah Jackson, Nevaeh Jackson, Jordan Jackson, Kai Jackson, Jovanni Jackson, and Leilani Jackson. Mr. Jackson also is survived by his nephews, Glen Weekly, Jackie Weekly, and James Skyles.
