Terrence (Terry) William Jackson
February 4, 1947 - December 30, 2020
Peacefully passed on December 30, 2020 at the age of 73. Terry was the devoted husband of Kathleen (Poprocky) Jackson for 32 years. He is also survived by his brother Tim (Gloria), Mother in Law, Ann Poprocky, Brothers and Sisters in law, Rita (Carl) Catalano, Theresa Poprocky, Monica (Pat) D’Abruzzo, Edward (Victoria) Poprocky and Anne (Paul) Troy, many beloved nieces and nephews and many friends. Terry was preceded in passing by his parents, William and Dorothy Jackson and his brother, Brian Jackson. Terry was an Air Force Veteran. He spent most of his career as a Federal employee of the Department of the Treasury, the IRS, and the OPM. In his retirement, he worked in child care for the YMCA of Wilmerding. He volunteered as a teacher’s aide for generations of his wife Kathy’s students. Terry loved helping children and always was himself a child at heart. He was an avid, intrepid traveler throughout Canada and the U.S. Most of all, Terry was a person of deep, enduring faith, dedicating years of service to his local Catholic parishes, as a sacristan, altar server, and Eucharistic Minister. Terry’s family remembers and cherishes his unmatched kindness, the twinkle in his eye and the joy he got and gave over telling silly jokes.
Family and friends are welcome to attend the Mass of Christian Burial celebrated at St. Angela Merici Church of Mary Mother of God Parish on Monday at 11am. Masks and social distancing are required in the church. Terry will be laid to rest with Military Honors at Good Shepherd Catholic Cemetery, Monroeville.
