    VEASEY of texas in the house of representatives Monday, March 11, 2013 Mr. VEASEY. Mr. Speaker, I rise today in honor and remembrance of Pastor McKinley Jackson Senior, a man dedicated to his family, church and friends. Pastor McKinley was a kind man who committed his life to serving others.



    Pastor Jackson was a long-time resident of Fort Worth, Texas. Rev. Jackson was the Pastor of Samaria Missionary Baptist Church in Fort Worth, Texas for the last 33 years. Prior to that, he was Pastor of Bethlehem Baptist Church in Terrell, Texas and also led two other churches. He was a former Fort Worth City Councilman for District #5; lifetime NAACP member, and served in leadership within many local, state and national civic and religious organizations.

    Mr. Speaker and colleagues please join me in honor and remembrance of Pastor McKinley Jackson, Senior whose kind spirit and dedicated service touched many lives. I offer my condolences and deepest sympathy to his wife, Eddie Ruth Jackson; sons, Ronnie Jackson, Michael Jackson, Jesse Jackson and Reverend William McKinley Jackson; daughters, Sharon Jackson and Alicia Jackson; adopted daughter, Angie Johnson; uncles; aunts; and a host of cousins, nephews, nieces, grandchildren, great grandchildren and the Samaria Church Family. May his soul rest in peace.
