George Jackson, a 65-year resident of New Mexico and a 35-year resident of Rio Rancho, died 22 Nov 2019 after a more than two year battle with cancer. He enlisted in the Army shortly after graduating from Highland High School in 1964. He served 20 years in the U.S. Army with tours in California, Massachusetts, Georgia, New Jersey, Japan, Vietnam, and Germany. He later worked as a rural mail carrier in Rio Rancho.
George enjoyed gardening, hunting, fishing, and barbecuing on his patio, and drinking beer with friends and family.
He was preceded in death by his parents Calvin and Mary of Albuquerque, and his older brother Robert of Fresno, Calif.
George is survived by his wife of 49 years, Setsuko Jackson, formerly of Hokkaido, Japan; and his brother, David and wife Joanne of Albuquerque; as well as several nieces and nephews. George will be greatly missed by his loving family and by those whose lives he touched.
Per his request there will be no funeral service. His Cremated Remains will be laid to rest at the Santa Fe National Cemetery in a private ceremony at a later date.
