Willie Mack Jackson
 
Those we love don't go away, they walk beside us every day, unseen, unheard,
but always near, still loved, still missed and very dear.”

A Time To Be Born
Willie Mack Jackson was born on February 27th, 1946, to Curly Mack (who proceeded him in death) and Johnnie Mae Spencer-Bailey. At an early age, he accepted Christ as his Lord and Personal Savior, and was baptized. Willie graduated in 1964 from Moton High School, where he played football.

A Time To Serve
Upon graduation, he decided to serve his country by joining The United States Army in June of 1967. He received a National Defense Medal for his service. After serving his country well, Willie Mack Jackson was Honorably Discharged.

He later moved to New Jersey where he worked as a Foreman, for U.S. Pipeline . After dedicating 34 years to the U.S. Pipeline, Willie Jackson retired. He moved to Atlanta, GA, where he and his wife, Cindy Jackson joined Mount Zion A.M.E. of Mansfield, GA, under the leadership of Reverend Benjamin Franklin, Jr. In 2008, Willie wanted to be close to home, so he moved back to Brooksville, Fl. There, he attended Ebenezer Missionary Baptist Church, under the leadership of Reverend Stricklen.
 
Willie was a giving son, husband, father, brother, uncle, and good friend. He gave to people willingly and was always eager to lend a hand.
