David Tyrone Jackson, Jr

July 4, 1994 — July 17, 2021

David Tyrone Jackson, Jr., 27, passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, July 17, 2021.

A Middle Georgia native, David was born on July 4, 1994, and raised in Warner Robins. He attended Northside High School where he was a talented section leader of the band and was an accomplished trombone and trumpet player. David graduated from Northside High School in 2012, and remained a dedicated supporter of the Eagles. He went on to study Political Science and Pre-Law at Georgia State University. He earned his Bachelor’s Degree with honors in 2016 and was the former Vice President of Academic Affairs for the Student Government Association.

David was also a skilled swimmer and began working in 2010 as a Lifeguard. He first worked for the Warner Robins Recreation Center, then the Childcare Network, Georgia State University, and finally in 2014, the Dynamo Swim Club. He then started his internship under Congressman John Lewis at the United States House of Representatives in Atlanta. He later interned as a Corporate Responsibility intern with Cox Enterprises. He accepted a position in 2018 as a Legal Assistant working for Montlick and Associates, Attorneys at Law. David started his most recent career with Google in 2020.

In his own words, he portrayed his drive for success as David wrote, “Devote yourself to your goals. Devote yourself to your dreams. Devote yourself to You. Never give up. Accept what is. Let go of what was, and prepare for all to come.” David encouraged many through his social media accounts, podcast, and his youtube channel. David was not only motivated but also grounded in his faith. He was a devoted member of Jerusalem Baptist Church. David served as an usher, sang in the choir, and was part of the drama team. His memory will be cherished by the many lives impacted for the better during his short time here on earth.

David was preceded in death by his great-grandparents; and loving grandfather, Jimmy Jones.
