Obituary

Born to the union of Stanley Jackson, Sr. and Torris Jackson on August 6, 1941, Stanley entered this world as the younger brother to Betty Jackson Grant. 
At a young age Stanley was baptized by Rev. EB Phillips at Second Baptist Church in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Although he was not an actual member of a church he could often be heard saying that he attended more church than most people because of the number of funerals he attended for work. He also dedicated his time for many years to assisting with the upkeep and maintenance of Zion Traveler Baptist Church ~ False River. Stanley “June” Jackson, Jr.,  graduated from Capitol High school in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.  His educational pursuits took him to Houston, Texas where he graduated from Prairie View University with a degree in Business Management. He then attended and graduated from Commonwealth Funeral Institute where he earned an Applied Sciences Degree in Mortuary Science.  
Stanley leaves to mourn his passing his wife of 47 years, Rose Albert Jackson. Two children; Charnel Jackson of New Roads, LA and Vickie Jackson of Gonzales, LA.  Two granddaughters, Khristy Parsons of Dallas, Tx, and Leah Fields of Gonzales, LA; One sister, Betty Grant of Baton Rouge, LA; one nephew Gerard Jackson and his wife Cynthia, also of Baton Rouge, La, sisters-in-law; Eliska Christophe and Julia Carter, both of New Roads, La, and Mary Ashford Chandler of Sugarland, Tx, two brothers-in-law; Ronald Albert and his wife Antoinette of Bear, Deleware and Gregory Albert and his wife Karla of Geneva, Illinois, three Godchildren; Gerelle Jackson, Brandi Paul and Bailey Flowers, along with a host of cousins, other family members and friends. 
Upon completion of his formal training, Stanley briefly worked for Ethel Corporation as a chemical operator in the late sixties and early seventies. As the eighties emerged, Stanley began his career in mortuary science and funeral direction in earnest. He became a powerhouse in the funeral industry and his career spanned for over forty years. His exemplary embalming skills, kind heart, and keen business knowledge were all above reproach and  helped to make families feel safe and secure that their loved ones were to be taken care of with respect, dignity and professionalism.  Throughout his career he worked at funeral homes in the Greater Acadians Area, Verrette’s Pointe Coupee Funeral Home, St. Francisville Funeral Home, A. Wesley Funeral Home and finally A. Hamilton Platinum Funeral Services where he served the public until his death. June attempted to retire several times during his career, but his love of people would not allow him to turn down someone when they would personally request his services for their loved ones  by ringing the doorbell or making a telephone call. Therefore, he continued to serve his community in the best way he knew how, until two weeks prior to his death. 
Stanley was also employed by the Pointe Couple Coroner’s officer as a Death Investigator . This position facilitated the opportunity for continuation of his education at St. Louis University where he completed the Medicolegal Death Investigator’s Training.  His career as a Mortician and effortless recall of anatomical and physiological terms lent themselves quite well to this new endeavor and he took just as much pride and professionalism in working for the Coroners Office  as he did in being a mortician and funeral director. He served the people of Pointe Coupee Parish until his health no longer allowed him to do so. 
For those who knew him well, Stanley was a very dedicated practical joker. One never quite knew exactly what he was going to do, and it was at those times that his most genuine laugh could be heard.   June enjoyed fishing, cooking, watching westerns and science fiction, taking on household projects, occasionally shooting pool, taking long rides to explore the countryside (he knew every local highway number and what other highways they would connect to), shopping, and perhaps his favorite activity, spoiling his younger granddaughter, little miss Leah Nicole Fields.  A quiet soul, whose love languages were gifts and acts of service, he was well loved, can never be replaced and shall be missed by all those whom he touched. 
June is proceeded in death by his parents, Standla and Torris Jackson, his son, Stanley Jackson, III, his mother and father in law Wilbert and Victoria Albert, eight brothers-in-law, one sister in law and a host of other relatives and friends
