Eddie was born September 9, 1953, in Welch, West Virginia; the son of Mr. and Mrs. Glen “Buddy” and Katherine (Estep) Jackson. Educated locally, Eddie graduated from Fenton High School in 1972. Upon his graduation, Eddie went to work for General Motors. After he left the plant, he would go on to begin his illustrious 35-year career as a carpenter. Eddie’s work could be found in Detroit’s home magazines. When he was not using his hands to craft homes, Eddie could be found playing his guitar. Coming from a family of musicians, Eddie was a guitar virtuoso. He played in various bands throughout his life, but his most notable was “Alex Jesse” founded in the 1980s. Although a bright light has been dimmed, his legacy of music and craftsmanship will live on.
Left to cherish his memory are his daughter, Stacie and husband, Timothy Abraham; grandchildren: Alexys, Nicholis, Gavin, Jaquece, Jaquesha, and Jaquan Abraham; siblings: Bolena Coleman, Juda Jackson, Raybon, and wife, Narda Jackson, Alton Jackson, Danny, and wife, Sylvetta Jackson, and Nadine and husband, Tony Justus; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
He was preceded in death by his parents, and brother, Benny Jackson.
