Condolence From: William Sells, Galion, Ohio
Condolence: Polly, Sorry for the lateness of this condolence but I was just doing some research on meaningful people in my life after talking to a woman in church today who also knew Ed. Your husband was a father figure in my life after my father died of cancer when I was 16 years old. I have fond memories of Ed taking me under his wing and doing fun things like hunting for arrow heads. I lost track of your family after I graduated and served in the Navy as a Hospital Corpsman during Vietnam. May God Bless you in your loss! Ed was one of the best men I ever had the priviledge to know!

Condolence: Pastor Ed was my Pastor at Grace Brethren in Kenai. I remember the Sunday Polly came to me all excited; my daughter, Bugs, had asked Jesus into her heart. He baptized me in a lake (Goose Lake?) in the spring as soon as the ice went off. Very cold, and very special also. Very influential in my walk with the Lord. Pastor Ed introduced me to II Tim 2:2.He asked me to teach Sunday School first time. About 45 years ago. I'm still at it. I have taught other young men to teach also. He left a few tracks in many places. I guess you call that a legacy. I truly thank God for Ed Jackson in my life.

Condolence: I first heard Ed when he represented the Ohio State Patrol in giving a safety speech at our school sometime around 1950. Then we served together in the same district of the FGBC. He was a real man's man, pastor's pastor, but more importantly God's man. He was a great example of what the Lord can do when we are totally sold out to Him. He will be missed.
Condolence From: Debora Floyd, Anchorage, Alaska
Condolence: Ed and Polly have a special place in the hearts of all the Floyd Family, Alaska. Ed’s service to our Lord is what inspired so many to Faith in our community. He was a founding inspiration to the Anchorage Grace Church. Our thoughts and prayers are with your family. We know you miss him. We look forward to seeing them again in eternity.

Condolence: My first meeting with Lt Jackson at age 12 was in Troy, where he was the leader of the church boys club, next 1959 when he ran my background check for the 59th OSP class, In 1983 we reunited at North Pole, AK, where he was starting a new church. I have many fond memories of our patrol years, one of the most dedicated and respected persons that I had the pleasure of knowing. Retired Capt. Bob Marlow

Condolence: Another of the Greatest Generation has passed. Every one of us who served looked up to men like Ed Jackson, who fought and won WWII. What a legacy they have provided to me and the men and women serving today. A shining example of duty, character, integrity ,and honor.
