Janice Annette Jackson

Janice Annette (“Jan,” Squirt”) Jackson, born on July 23, 1958, was preceded in death by her father, Jesse Edward Jackson; mother, Tommie Donoho Jackson; and brothers, Jerry Edward Jackson and Kenneth Lee Jackson.  Jan is survived by her sister and brother-in-law, Debbie Jackson (Reggie) Holland of Bowling Green, Ky and a host of nieces, nephews and cousins.  Jan passed away on Saturday, October 13, 2018.  Jan was a beacon of light and joy, expressing love to others by calling them “fritty.”  Outliving her life projection at birth by more than 40 years, Jan developed a love of knitting, coloring, cooking and eating.  Those who knew her can envision Jan sitting with one leg crossed over the other, rocking gently back and forth, her capabilities out performing her born abilities.  She enjoyed listening to country music, spending many of her days watching CMT.  Her facial expressions and verbal cues let you know where you stood, good or bad, and she used nicknames for many loved ones.  Her laughter was both boisterous and contagious.  She loved Santa and tending to baby dolls, and she thoroughly enjoyed celebrating her birthday.  A simple soul with a golden heart, Jan’s loved ones are comforted to know that she is enjoying a new birth in a flawless body with an endless life.  “I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.  Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.” Psalm 139:14.  Graveside services will be conducted on Tuesday, October 16, 2018 at 10:00 a.m. with by J.

Jan had a heart of gold. She taught me to knit when I was a child. I loved to hear her call me Miss A. She was an Angel here on earth. Now, she has her wings. Thanks so much to Chad and Denisha for caring for her so well.

Jan was such a sweet soul. Her and Tommy would come to my beauty shop and I enjoyed spending time with them. She would always talk about her birthday! Prayers for all of you.

Jan was a ray of light to all who knew her. She was so loved by her Mom on this Earth and I know she is rejoicing with her today in Heaven. It was an honor to know her and watch her grow up not far from my home. I know she will be greatly missed by all who knew her. Rest in peace, Jan. Until we all meet again..
