Mark Alan Jackson

d. January 5, 2022

Mr. Mark Alan Jackson, age 59, of Mayfield, Kentucky, died on Wednesday, January 5, 2022, at his home.
Mr. Jackson was born March 23, 1962, in Murray, Kentucky, to the late Betty Lou Wilkins Jackson and Bennie J. Jackson. Mark graduated from Calloway County High School and began his military career of 12 years and 8 months, proudly serving in the Army National Guard and completing with an honorable discharge from the United States Marine Corp. He later followed his uncle Wade and his dad in farming, as well as truck driving and tinkering with greasy engines- the greasier the better.
In the Marine Corp Sgt. Jackson received the Rifle Expert Badge, Sea Service Deployment Ribbon, Good Conduct Medal, The Meritorious Mast, Southwest Asia Service Medal, Certificate of Commendation, Navy Unit Commendation, Kuwait Liberation Medal, Combat Action Ribbon, Marine Unit Commendation, and the Navy Artic Service Medal.
Mr. Jackson is survived by two daughters, Sara Kathryne Campbell and husband Corde of Dukedom, Tennessee and Emily Lou Jackson of Mayfield, Kentucky; son, Alan Wade Jackson of Paducah, Kentucky; grandsons, Colt Jackson Campbell and Jameson Case Campbell and granddaughter, Evelyn Ray Dixon; two sisters, Patricia Ward and husband Gary of Hazel, Kentucky and Kathy Hargrove and husband Bob of Murray, Kentucky; also, several nieces and nephews.
Better known as Pawpaw and Lil' Brother, Mark was happiest bragging on his grandchildren, listening to Graves County football, UK Basketball, and arguing that all tractors should be named Allis. In his memory, Mark probably only asks that we fly our American flag proudly.
