Obituary for Jessie Smith Jackson

Jessie Smith Jackson, 86, was called home peacefully in her sleep on Tuesday, October 22, 2019 to the loving arms of Jesus Christ her Lord.

Jessie was born in Wayne County on August 14, 1933 to the late Robert and Viola Radford Smith. She had retired from Fremont Manufacturing Company. Jessie was the rock of her family and they knew that she loved them with all her heart and truly was a blessing to them.

Jessie was always devoted to her church and was involved in many activities where she utilized her gifts and abilities to share the love of God. She was a member of Ray of Hope Church for many years and was recently attending services at The First Pentecostal Holiness Church in Goldsboro.

Jessie had a sparkle in her eye and a heartwarming, generous spirit, always making everyone feel at home. Her faith, strength and courage during challenging times inspired all who knew her. Jessie’s sense of humor, unconditional love and deeply caring nature graced us all.

The family will receive friends from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, October 24, 2019 at Seymour Funeral Home followed by a service to celebrate Jessie’s life at 7:00 p.m. in the chapel with Rev. Bill Rose officiating. The family will also greet friends following the service at the funeral home and other times at her home. Interment will be on Friday, October 25, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. in the Smith Family Cemetery at her home.

Jessie is survived by her husband, Gene Jackson; daughter and son-in-law, Sharon and Frank Lane of Goldsboro; special friends, Derald and June Smith and Aire Miller and cousin, Darlene Messerli.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by the father of her children, James "Bud" Teachey; her son, James Ronnie Teachey; daughter, Loretta Teachey; and son-in-law, Ed Sutton.
