Obituary for Perry Jimmy Jackson

Perry “PJ” Jackson died peacefully at Bayhealth Medical Center in Dover, DE on March 25, 2019 at the age of 81.

PJ, 7-1-1, or Pop, as many would lovingly call him, was born on June 30, 1937, in Hayti, MO to Edward and Mallie Jackson. He graduated from Central High School where he played basketball and the trumpet, before graduating in 1955.

He served in the United States Air Force, which brought him to Dover, DE, where he met Mary Scott and settled.

He was a certified welder in which he used this skill on the railroad and the construction of numerous bridges. He retired from the Capital School District as the supervisor of the maintenance staff.

PJ’s free time was spent working on his Citizen Band radio and relaxing in front of his house with his “canine” Ben.

He is preceded in death by his longtime companion, Mary Scott, parents, Edward and Mallie Jackson; brothers; E.L Jackson, and Charles Jackson; sister, Mallie Jackson Brown, and special family and friends Shirley Ann Nickerson, Ronald Scott and William and Betty Ann Brooks.

During this most difficult time the scriptures serve as a comfort zone. 2 Thessalonians 2:16, 17; 2Corinthians 1:3, 4 Helping us to see that our pain and suffering will be a thing of the past, and we can cry tears of joy as we welcome back the ones that we love so much. John 5:28, 29; Revelation 21:4 I hope you find comfort in these promises. My deepest sympathy goes out to all the family.
