Lindell Gerald “Jerry” Jackson, 82, of Danville, IN passed away unexpectedly on August 24, 2023.  He was born in Holcomb, Missouri on April 2, 1941, and was the son of late James and Mernice (Vaughn) Jackson.

Jerry enjoyed relaxing in the outdoors and he cherished his time spent with family. He worked hard and gave his all to his family. He had a fierce love for all of his Grand & Great Grandchildren. Being a Papaw was his crowing achievement. He had a special relationship with each one making some beautiful memories. He always made sure he had super glue, gold fish crackers and popcorn so he could fix anything they needed or give out treats. He was full of life, wisdom and laughter. Always willing to share a story, a life experience or give words of wisdom to help one of us navigate our own paths. He was a member of New Winchester Baptist Church.
