He served in the Army in Korea and became a member of the Suffern High School Sports Hall of Fame as well as the Rockland County Track and Field Hall of Fame. In 2004, he was inducted into the Rockland County Civil Rights Hall of Fame. He is survived by his wife, Deborah, his children and grandchildren. Visitation is today and tomorrow from 4:00 pm – 8:00 pm, followed by a prayer service Friday at 10:30 at Wanamaker & Carlough Funeral Home in Suffern. The family asks that in lieu of flowers contributions be made to the Sloatsburg Food Pantry. Dr. Jackson was 87.
