Jackson – “Pee Wee” – played tackle for the Decatur Red Raiders during the 1935-38 football seasons. He won many honors at that position. His greatest fans were his beautiful sisters – Genie, Hazel, Frances, and Beverly. After finishing high school Jackson entered the United States Army and was killed in action in Austria in 1945.
