Obituary: Carl S. Jackson

Dec. 13, 1940 – Jan. 28, 2024

Carl S. Jackson, 83, of Sister Bay, died on Sunday, Jan. 28, 2024 at Scandia Village.

He was born Dec. 13, 1940 in Louisville, Kentucky, the son of the late Hubert and Mary (North) Jackson. Carl was raised in Vail, Iowa where his family resided. Following high school graduation, he received his undergraduate degree at Iowa State University and his MD in Psychiatry at the University of Iowa. 

His career began interning in Philadelphia continuing with his residency at St. Lukes Hospital in New York City. Carl’s career continued after Maine Medical Center by taking positions in Chicago, at University of Illinois and Illinois Masonic Hospital while maintaining a busy and satisfying private practice. Dedication to serve and helping others was evident in his medical mission trips spent in South India where he offered surgical and emotional healing. Carl left his mark on this earth as an honest, honorable, trustworthy man.

Love of music manifested itself in singing with his beautiful tenor voice which would lead to forming a two-piano team with his wife, Judith, performing many annual benefit concerts for worthy causes in the Door County area. Carl and Judith Ault were married June 16, 1979 in Deerfield, Illinois. 

Surviving family include his dear wife, Judith Ault Jackson, and his daughter, Kathryn (LeRoy) Hawbaker of Ohio.

Preceding him in death were his parents, Hubert and Mary Jackson, and his sister, Marietta Pearson.
A celebration of his life will be held at 11 am, Wednesday Feb. 7, 2024 at Shepherd of the Bay Lutheran Church with Rev. James Honig officiating. 

In lieu of flowers, memorials in Carl’s memory should be directed to Klaud’s Pantry, or the Sanctuary Choir Fund, both at Shepherd of the Bay Lutheran Church, Ellison Bay.
