Timothy J Jackson Jr (Timmy), 44, passed away peacefully on June 6, 2022 with family by his side. He was born to the late Timothy J Jackson Sr and Mary Kaye Thompson on October 9, 1977 in Mesa, Arizona. Tim was known for his compassion, willingness to serve others, his genuine kindness, his love of Christ, and his ability to make anyone laugh.
Tim worked as a registered nurse for 12 years and helped change the lives of many patients as well as his co-workers. He had an ability with patients to calm their troubles and truly comfort them in their time of need. He loved to educate those around him because he always wanted to see others succeed. He was frequently recognized within the profession for his excellence in leadership and his compassion.
Tim married Amber Neel and it was obvious that they were soulmates. After three short years of marriage Tim was diagnosed with glioblastoma, a form of brain tumor. He was extremely honored to participate in a clinical trial with the Ivy Brain Tumor Center with the hope to advance research for those with glioblastoma. With the knowledge that the clinical trial may not help him, Tim was happy to be able to participate and provide data for Dr. Sanai to find a cure in the future. It was always in Tim’s character to put others first, and this was evident even during the last and most difficult months of his life. It was Tim’s full belief that he lived as long as he did because of Dr. Sanai.
Tim is survived by his wife Amber, stepsons Jude and Maxwell, daughter Charlotte, son Timothy J Jackson III (Timmy), mother Kaye Jackson, siblings Tara Worthington (Ben), Greg Jackson, Kelli Jackson.
Tim was the light in this world that everyone needed. Just knowing Tim made you a better person.
