Brad Jackson, 60, as he was commonly known, passed away unexpectedly on July 18, 2016. He is survived by his true love of 38 years, Penny.

Brad was a happy man who looked forward to everyday as a challenge and a chance to enjoy his life with the friends who surrounded him. For 34 12 years he worked as the Eastern Regional VP of Corporate Recognition Consultants and loved his job. In his free time he thoroughly enjoyed mowing his lawn to absolute perfection, golfing, lying on his back in the ocean being the center of story-telling and lore as well as savoring every morsal of bizarre and unusual food he could find. He had a wanderlust of traveling; seeing new, wonderful places and driving every imaginable route to the same place never crossing his path more than once.
