Nathan Craig Jackson

Nathan Craig Jackson, 44, of Salem, Arkansas, departed this life on Wednesday, May 4, 2022, at his home surrounded by his family.

He was born in Salem, Arkansas on June 9, 1977, and was the son of Ricky Jackson and Lela Kathy (Delargy) Acord. Nathan was united in marriage to Jean Ann Gaskins on May 26, 2001, at First Baptist Church in Horseshoe Bend, Arkansas. From this union two sons were born, Chance and Spencer. He loved his family with all his heart and was so proud of his boys. Nathan loved spending time with family, whether they be on vacation or working on old cars. He had a love for anything fast and loud. He liked old cars, especially his black and gold Nova. He also loved rock n roll and was a very hard worker.

Many lives have been touched and will continue to be blessed by this group as his legacy lives on through his family and this group.
