Jimmy Don Jackson

Jimmy Don Jackson, 79, of Searcy passed away February 1, 2018 at Unity Health Medical Center. Jimmy Don was born March 4, 1938 in Brinkley, Arkansas.

He was preceded in death by his parents, John and Bernice Jackson; and one brother, Tommy.

He is survived by his wife of 50 years, Nancy; one son, Mike Jackson; one daughter, Johnna Hart (Mike); one granddaughter, Alexa; one grandson, Jackson, and one brother, Steve Jackson (Linda).

Jimmy Don was passionate about his family (especially his grandchildren), as well as golf, travel, the Razorbacks, hunting, and fishing, but the things he cherished most about those activities were the relationships formed with dear friends.
Jimmy Don was recognized by many nicknames, but his favorite was “Old Dude,” given to him by Alexa and Jackson and their friends on the golf course.

Jimmy Don was a member of the First Presbyterian Church where he served as an elder.


A Memorial Service will be held Monday, February 5th at 1:00pm at the First Presbyterian Church of Searcy, followed by a reception in the Fellowship Hall.

Memorials may be made to the First Presbyterian Church, 400 W. Arch Street, Searcy, Arkansas 72143

Jimmy Don and I were friends. My sympathies to his wife whom I did not know and his children. He was a fine person and I am sad to hear of his passing.

So sorry to lose this great friend. My prayers are with Nancy and this precious family. Jimmy Don was one of a kind and a good friend, remember snow skiing with him many years ago while working for ITL. God bless you all.

Knew Jimmy Don well, most all our lives, he was my friend and my customer when I was in Searcy.
May our God and Savior Jesus Christ provide the family with the comfort only he can!!!
