Obituary

Thomas “Tommy” Douglas Jackson was born on November 15, 1949 in Natchez, Mississippi to the late Thomas Jackson Jr. and Dorothy Louise Jackson. Tommy was the eldest of five children. The family moved to Oakland, California when Thomas Douglas was one year of age.  He was called “Tommy” by his family and was called “Jack” by all his lifelong friends.

At an early age, Thomas was baptized at Progressive Missionary Baptist Church in Berkley, California. As the son of Thomas Jr., who was a Deacon, Trustee, and Treasurer of Progressive, Tommy learned to become active in several church activities. Tommy attended church every Sunday, and one activity he especially enjoyed was singing in the choir.
