Alvin Jackson was born on May 6, 1961 to the late James Jackson and Annie Elizabeth Douglas Jackson in Colquitt, Georgia. Al was one of 14 children.
At an early age, Alvin dedicated his life to Christ and joined Tabernacle Freewill Baptist Church. Alvin attended Bethel Elementary School and Miller County High School. After school, Alvin went into farming full time. In 1999, he made the decision to leave the farming life and move to Lawrenceville, Georgia. With this move, he worked a series of jobs in the warehousing industry.
Alvin Jackson was united in holy matrimony to Amanda Roseborough in Colquitt, GA. From this union, they were blessed with two beautiful daughters.
Alvin (aka Al or Big Al) had a love for traditional gospel music. He also had a heart that was even bigger than he was. He would always tell his family “I love you”. After a courageous battle with lung cancer, Al made a peaceful transition to be with the Lord.
On Friday, September 10, 2021, Alvin went home to be with the Lord. He is preceded in death by his parents, James Jackson and Annie Elizabeth Douglas Jackson and seven siblings.
