Remembering David Eugene Jackson

David Eugene Jackson

Visitation for Mr. David Eugene Jackson, age 50 of Dubach, LA will be held at 5:00-7:00 PM, Wednesday, November 30, 2022 at Owens Memorial Chapel Funeral Home in Ruston, LA.

David was born July 7, 1972 to Teresa and Clifton Jackson in Homer, LA, and he took his last breath November 28, 2022 in Ruston at Northern Louisiana Medical Center. He lived in Dubach with his mother Teresa Flowers. David loved watching the New Orleans Saints football games. When the games were on, his room was to be quiet with no distractions.

He enjoyed collecting every item he could find that had the Saints logo on it. David made sure that the remote to his TV was right beside him at all times throughout the day. He loved when his nieces Brooke and Samantha Slaton would take him to town to shop or to even simply get groceries. David always enjoyed getting out of the house.

He experienced struggles and challenges that affected his day-to-day life. David had his bad days, but, on his good days, he would make numerous jokes and would want everyone around him to watch any video he found on his tablet that he thought was funny. He is preceded in death by his grandmother Juanita Maryland.

David left behind his mother Teresa Flowers; father Cliffton Jackson; sister Shelly and husband John Slaton; brothers Lynn Jackson and Kevin Jackson; aunts: Kathie Menshew, Nancy Wilson and Sandra Elee; cousin Cynthia Cannady; nephews: Dalton Slaton, Jensen Slaton, Ayden Slaton, John Holloway and Leland Holloway; nieces: Brooke Slaton, Samantha Slaton, Ali Slaton and Athena Devours; and a host of friends and family. The loss of him in our family has deeply affected everyone, though, we know, he is now at peace running around and maybe, just maybe, getting to play that game of football that he admired so much.
