JACKSON: Ross James “Jim” of Brandon and formerly of Dauphin and the Paulson area passed away at the Brandon Regional Health Centre on June 28, 2013. Jim was born in Chicago, Illinois on March 5, 1951. His early life was spent in Dauphin and in the Paulson district. He had a number of jobs in early years, later completing courses to graduate as a Registered Psychiatric Nurse in 1982. He worked most recently at Westman Crisis Services. Jim loved his job and the people he worked with. He had many varied interests. Jim is survived by his wife Kelly, and children Chancey (Angela) Jackson, Sarah Jackson (Jean Marc Castagnet), Adam and Andrew Jackson. He was “Grumpa” to Zach, Davvelynn and Kynan. Jim was predeceased by his parents Rosco and Helen Jackson. “Today heaven gained another angel, and myself, I gained another guardian angel. To those who knew my dad, knew that he didn’t need to get his wings to be an angel. Throughout his much too short time here with us, he never denied someone in need. He was open arms to those who needed a hand. He had many different solutions to any problem and always had one hundred things on the go. He lived to help people at work and his personal time. All those people who felt they were able to live an extra day by his counsel are those to have a place to live by his aid, for all who have been blessed to have met him, for he was truly an angel. He passed away peacefully in his sleep today with his family around him. He is no longer in pain. I’m sure he is already horse trading and haggling with the others for the best cloud in the sky. A father is always a daughter’s first love; And I had the strongest, smartest, best first love! I love you daddy. Every day will be hard for a while. But you raised four fantastic children who can cope and stand on their own feet. We will be okay. You just rest now.” - Love Sarah Jackson“A great man lost his battle with cancer this weekend. A man I will always be proud to call my father, I can only hope to grow up to be half the man you were. Love now and forever; gone but never forgotten.”
- Adam Jackson.
Cremation has taken place. At Jim’s request there will be no funeral, but a celebration of his life; a barbeque will be held in his honor at Grand Valley Provincial Park. Date to be announced. Donations in memory of Jim may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society, 415 – 1st Street, Brandon, MB R7A 2W8.

Dad was a very positive person and kept this attitude up right until the very end. Dad was born in Trosa Sweden on April 9, 1934. Dad and his parents and two sisters immigrated to Canada in December 1951 when Dad was 17 years old. They came to Canada on a transatlantic voyage on the MS Stockholm. They initially lived in Lundar in a hunter’s log cabin with no electricity or running water however Dad talked so fondly of those times with the meals that Grandma cooked and the fun they had playing games and telling jokes. Dad became a Canadian citizen once in Canada and loved living in Canada but his heart always remained in Sweden. He adored his family very much and in the early days worked at any type of work no matter what in the worst weather to support his girls! He loved anything Swedish and especially his Volvo’s!! He was a “Swede” through and through! Dad’s ultimate passion was music and playing his accordion. He loved all kind of music but absolutely loved jazz music. Dad loved his yard, his garden and animals/nature. He loved his sweets and was known as the cookie monster. Dad thoroughly enjoyed coffee in the morning in the sun with Mom and of course a beer or two at happy hour!! Dad is survived by his wife Beverlee and his three daughters Shannon, Kim and Krista (Marc), his sister Yvonne (Eugene), sister Birgitta (Larry), and his grandchildren Jeremy, Courtney, Shalyn, Sara, Justin and Alysha and numerous nephews and nieces. Dad will be dearly missed by many close friends and the musical community which he greatly enriched. A celebration of Dad’s life will be held on July 27, 2013 at the Gilbert Plains Legion at 6:30 p.m. There will be an open mic and “Jam for Hans” that evening. All musicians are encouraged to bring their instruments and partake in the celebration. In lieu of flowers we would welcome donations in Dad’s memory to the Grandview Foundation with funds allocated to the Grandview Hospital where Dad received the best care we could ever imagine!!
