Tragedy strikes in the neighborhood

Wednesday, August 11, 2021

We received news last night we did not want to hear.  Our good neighbor, Jeff Jackson, was killed in an ATV accident.  They say he was spraying ditch banks, and the 4-wheeler overturned and landed atop him.  He died at the scene.  Our hearts are broken for this wonderful family.  Jeff was 63 years old, and a happy grandpa.   He will be sorely missed by all who knew him.   This community lost a terrific leader, who served others in many ways.  He led the local township volunteer fire department, and many times he was the first responder to any 911 call.  He seemed tireless.   Jeff was our DeKalb/Asgrow dealer, and delivered unparalleled service.   Jeff continued his family’s legacy of superb farm management.   He was an admired and respected farmer, and always maintained a proper spirit of humility.   Best of all, he was a fellow believer in Christ, and his faithfulness was always quietly apparent.

We will do all we can to support this family.  Please pray for them.

Philippians 4:6-7
