Thinker, Poet, Actor.

Ronald Stephen Jackson, age 70, was a man of indelible wit, gregarious character, and audacious ideas. Born to educators George and Aurola “Rodi” Jackson in Morehead, KY in 1948, his love of literature and the arts was instilled early on.

He sought fervently to weave together ideas and dreams, both for himself and those around him. A master of the written word, he penned poetry, prose, and plays that added rich color and texture to the world. These talents led him to create The Idea Farm, Inc. a marketing firm operated by Ron and his wife, Martha Jackson in Danville, KY.

His unconditional love for his wife and children, Graham and Emma, drove his vivacity for life in every aspect. 

The family will receive visitors from 1-4 pm on  Saturday, March 30th at 464 West Broadway St. in Danville, Ky. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Danville Community Arts Center or West T. Hill Community Theatre are greatly appreciated.

    We're so sorry to hear you are mourning the recent loss of your loved one. May you find strength and comfort from the words of Psalms 46:1 which reads: "God is our refuge and strength, A help that is readily found in times of distress." Our loving God is there for us if we ask for his help (1 John 5:14). He didn't intend for us to grow old and die. He thus has made the SURE promise of a resurrection RIGHT HERE ON EARTH when it is restored to a beautiful paradise (Psalms 37:9-11, 29; Acts 24:15; Isaiah 55;11). Can you see yourself welcoming back to life your loved ones? What a joy it will bring all of us. You can go online to JW.ORG and find out more about this resurrection. Also, you are invited to the memorial of Jesus death that will be celebrated this year on April 19th after sundown. You can find out the time and place in your area at
