Charles P. Jackson, III
Age 66, passed away Monday, March 21, 2017. Kim was born October 6, 1950 to Charles P. Jackson, Jr. and Frances Horn Jackson, both of Nashville. He graduated from David Lipscomb High School, obtained his B.A. in English from David Lipscomb University and a Doctor of Jurisprudence from the University of Tennessee.
He made a successful career practicing law in Chattanooga and Nashville, followed by a pursuit of business interests in West Palm Beach, Fl., London, and Switzerland. He was a life-long student of literature, especially poetry and biography, and his love of books defined him more than any other traits except his joy of friends and life’s abundant gifts.
