Mr. John Carter Jackson, 53, passed away on Friday, February 28, 2020, at his home in Southaven, MS.

Carter was born on July 23, 1966 in Jackson, MS. He grew up in Hazlehurst, where he was a member of First Baptist Church and their youth choir. Carter was a 1984 graduate of Copiah Academy in Gallman, MS, where he was a member of the band and student conductor. He attended Ole Miss as a member of the band and Concert Singers and graduated salutatorian from Gupton-Jones College of Mortuary Science in Atlanta, GA.

He spent his entire life in service to others as a first responder and a licensed funeral director for over 25 years as he helped individuals and families through difficult circumstances. Carter was a member of The Academy of Professional Funeral Service Practice as a Certified Funeral Service Practitioner (CFSP).

Carter was a member of Delta Psi (Phi Chapter) and Pi Sigma Eta fraternities. He participated in efforts to support St. Jude Children's Research Hospital and the traveling Vietnam Memorial. In his spare time, he enjoyed portraying mortuary practitioners during Civil War re-enactments and was a contributor to the Woodruff-Fontaine House Museum. He was a member of Longview Heights Baptist Church.

Left behind to cherish his memory are his wife of 24 years, Pam Crump Jackson and his son, Benjamin Carter Jackson, both of Southaven; his parents, John and Rebecca Jackson and his sister, Rebecca Jackson Feldman, all of Greenville, SC.

I’ve known Carter ever since meeting him at Ole Miss back in 1986 as a fraternity brother of his. I only learned of his passing today and I’m so sorry for your loss Jackson family. Carter was a riot to hang out with and I’ve never laughed as much as I did when we hung out at Ole Miss. The world and the funeral industry have lost a great man.

This is a huge loss for those of us in the funeral industry. He was one of the most compassionate people you could ever meet. He truly put his heart into everything he did/loved and left an unforgettable impression! I loved hearing all his stories, some unbelievable at times, but always enjoyable to hear. He could make anyone laugh with his one-of-a-kind sense of humor. There will never be another like you, J. Carter "Do Me A Favor" Jackson, CFSP. *Rest Easy my friend*

My sincerest condolences. I served with Carter on the region 4 DMORT team. We deployed after Katrina and Ike and attended several conferences and training missions together. Such a kind gentleman and sweet person. We will truly miss him.
