Media Statement from UDWI Board of Directors
Statement on Death of Veteran Board Member James Jackson
October 17, 2018
It is with great sadness that the Utilities District of Western Indiana REMC must share with its members that longtime Board member, James “Jimmy Jack” Jackson, passed away Tuesday, Oct. 16. He died after a long struggle resulting from injuries sustained in a farming accident earlier this summer.
Jackson served on the Board of Directors for more than 35 years and held several officer positions over the years. During his time at UDWI, he was a champion for policies that bettered the co-op and was the foremost advocate for his members. This past year, Jackson was instrumental in the many changes UDWI undertook to cut costs and improve operations. He was especially known for his care and concern for the welfare of the employees at the cooperative.
Jackson is a retired boilermaker from Crane, and had worked for the past several years on a 1,500-acre cattle farm and tended to his own property. He is survived by his wife Sharon, three children, and four grandchildren.
UDWI sends its deepest condolences and sympathies to the Jackson family. Jimmy’s good-natured spirit and friendship will be greatly missed.
