John Temple Jackson
John, age 75, went to be with the Lord on Sunday, December 8, 2019 surrounded by his family. He was a native of New Orleans, LA and a resident of Hammond, LA.
John was an extremely hard worker who dedicated many years working as a plumber, pipe fitter, and car salesman. He proudly served in the United States Army and earned the rank of Sergeant in the Vietnam War. John was extremely passionate about cars; some would even call him an expert. He loved going to car shows and taking rides. John's true love was his family and he adored spending time with his grandchildren. He was a loving husband, caring father, and incredible Grandpa who will be deeply missed.

Jackson, Gerald L. Jackson; grandchildren, Ethan, Liam, Ryan, and Sophie Jackson, Matthew and Joshua Jackson, Allaina and Dillon Schneller, Claudia Olah, Caroline and Jackson Kincaid.
