Charles W. “Chuck” Jackson

Family & friends are invited to attend a Graveside Service at Woodlawn Cemetery, 302 Elm St., Everett on Saturday, June 26th for Charles W. Jackson, who passed away on January 8th, 2021 at Boston Medical Center. He was 61 years of age. Please meet at the main gate of the cemetery at 1:00 p.m.

Born in Boston, he was raised in Revere. He attended local schools and was a graduate of Revere High School. Chuck worked at Raytheon in Waltham for a number of years but his true passion was music. Starting at a young age, he loved music and was a performer who loved to entertain his friends & family. At the young age of 5 years old, he would put on a number of shows in his yard with the neighborhood children.  As he grew older, the shows would continue, and he would make costumes and he also designed a stage. He was the choreographer and music man. He charged 5 cents for the tickets, and he would set up benches for his family to sit on. He was the “whole show”! His father played the guitar and sang & Chuck and his brothers Steven & Chris all learned to play guitar and sing as well. They entertained family and friends throughout the holidays and with backyard gatherings during the summer months. As time passed, the family moved to Saugus and he would set up his drums on the front lawn and play for the kids in the neighborhood. As an adult, he and his band played local venues and his family was always sitting front row as his number one supporters.

He is the beloved son of the late William Curtis Jackson & Angela (Savoia) Howell of Cape Coral, Florida. Devoted father of Shawn Jackson of Ft. Myers, Florida & adored grandfather of Olivia Jackson. Dear brother of Steven Jackson of Las Vegas, Nevada and Christopher Jackson of Pennsylvania. He is the cherished nephew of Carl Savoia of Revere & the loving uncle of 9 nieces & nephews. He is also lovingly survived by many cousins.

In lieu of flowers, remembrances may be made to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, TN 38105.
