I met Rev. Jackson many years ago, as his wife, Sis. Remell W. Jackson and his mother-in-law, Mother Hazel Williams were members of The New Jerusalem COGIC in Attapulgus, GA where my father served as Pastor, around the sixties. Rev. Jackson would come over on Anniversaries and preach our spiritual walls down; And from that time, I have respected and admired him as a Great Leader, of a Great Family!

Sis. Jackson, Ron and Family, I am praying for you, at this difficult time.

Supt. P.E. Hayes II Southern GA 2nd Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction COGIC
