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.

He is survived by his daughter, Lauren Elizabeth Jackson, of Sarasota, Florida, sister Linda Rainey and her husband Jerry of Brentwood, brother David and his wife Leslie of Brentwood, nieces Cayce Rainey Burklow of Brentwood and Brooke Rainey Morgan of Nashville, Frances Elise Jackson of Tucson, Arizona, Zena Hay Jackson of Starkville, Mississippi, and Charles Wyatt Jackson of Oxford, Mississippi, and loyal friends Dr. Dennis Loyd and Allen Doty of Nashville, and Robert J. Sudderth of Charleston, South Carolina.  In lieu of flowers, memorial gifts may be made to the Cora Mathews Horn Fund for Families via the Nashville Community Foundation.  The family looks forward to greeting visitors on Thursday between 2:00 and 4:00 at St. George’s Episcopal Church, 4715 Harding Pike, Nashville, TN 37205.

Kim will be missed everyday as he was the one person who I spoke with everyday on how “Beauty will save the world” . His love of the arts and philosophy developed into one of my finest friendships. He has crossed the finish line ahead of me to meet the Master and I pray he puts in a good word for me. My condolences to all his Family and Friends.

Dearest Lauren,

I am so deeply sorry. I know how much Kim loved you and how proud he was of you. You were his reason to wake in the morning and I am sure the last thing he thought about before retiring. I also know how much you loved him and what a good daughter you were to him. He is now in the arms of Nam, Papa and Doda so be happy for him and may he rest in peace.

I also offer my condolences to Kim’s family and friends.

Dear Lauren,
It is never easy to lose someone in your life. My heart hurts for you and your family. I have many fond memories of your Daddy back in the day when your mom was still in Nashville. Prayers for strength in knowing he is without pain and will always be in your heart. xoxo

Condolence from Melinda & Mike Hickey on March 22nd, 2017 12:13 pm

Dear Lauren,
Our thoughts are with you! Your Montana Family all send their love to you. Colin & I talked about your Daddy just last night. He and Lexie were sad for you. Mike & I love and miss you so much. Your Daddy was such a good childhood friend of Mike’s as they lived in the same neighborhood in West Meade. He was sharing stories with me of the mischief they got into as little boys. I know Kim will be missed by many, most especially by his devoted daughter. You were such an amazing support for him. I know you are sad. We all love you dearly!
Aunt Melinda, Uncle Mike & your MT Cousins

Our deepest condolences to all of Kim’s family and friends during this time.

Lauren, your sweet Daddy changed our families lives in 1986! We had been friends for years with your Mom and Dad when the crisis of our life happened! God blessed us with a child, Tonya, when she was 22 months old. We immediately fell in love with her. Six months later, her birth mother wanted her back. Everyone said the courts would give her back to that mother, everyone but your Dad. Kim told us our chances to keep Tonya were slim, but he would fight with all that he had to help us keep her. 3 years of legal posturing and hearings and the thought of loosing our daughter was the worse thing in our life time to bear. Kim just kept fighting for our child. He was brilliant, and on the day before Thanksgiving 1986, the judge ruled that Tonya would stay in our family. There has been no better day in our lives! I can remember crying my eyes out with your awesome Daddy crying with us. God and your Dad blessed us that day, and I will never forget that gift. Tonya turned 35 the day your Daddy died. I will always think of your awesome Dad every year on Tonya’s birthday and will always celebrate Kim Jackson and how we will love and appreciate him forever. Now I am praying for Kim’s beloved daughter, whom he always talked about every time we spoke. God bless you!
