If you needed help, Joe was there. Just like his dad. As a lifelong employee at the Northern Lights Casino, Joe was EE#00021. Working his way up to Assistant General Manager. He was the type of leader who listened to his employees, never had a bad thing to say about anyone and whose door was always open. When Joe wasn’t working, he enjoyed playing golf, hunting, fishing and especially watching his nephews play ball. Joe enjoyed watching all kinds of sports, his favorite was the Masters Tournament. He worked hard and played in many golf tournaments, making many friends there. Joe always took someone with him when he went hunting. He loved taking Baby Dan out into the woods with him so he could teach him “how it’s done”.
Joe was preceded in death by: his dad Fred Jackson Jr.; paternal grandparents Fred and Rose Jackson Sr.; maternal grandparents Benny and Margaret Lowry; cousins Tim, Renae, Laurie, Mike, Rose, Sheena, Randy, DJ, Theresa, Ernest Declusin and his son Ernie, and several other relatives.
