Stephanie Jackson Obituary, Death – On February 7, 2023, Stephanie Jackson passed away without incident, surrounded by an incredible amount of love from both near and far. She fought her brain cancer for three years and had great grace, bravery, and persistence throughout the entire ordeal. Through her exceptional spirit, she was able to bring solace to those who were close to her and enlighten those who had the good fortune to know her.
Carolyn McIntyre gave birth to her daughter on February 9, 1983, in Toledo, Ohio. She was surrounded by love from her mother as well as her grandparents, Diane and Kenneth Rowe. They were the source of nourishment for her Catholic faith, and as a result, she continued to be an active member of the church. Her relationship with God gave her the peace of mind she required in order to confront the incomprehensible.
She leaves behind her three children, Eliot McIntyre, Camille Diane, and Leon William, and is known as the most devoted mother in the world. During their nearly nine years of marriage, she has been a loving wife to Dan Jackson, and together they have created an incalculable number of happy moments together. Her five younger siblings, Jessica (Alex) Scher, Alison (Justin) Jacobs, Olivia Sodd, Zachary Bernhoft, and Bennett Bernhoft, as well as her sister-in-law Sarah Jackson, will always remember her as an exceptional sister. She was someone who listened, loved without condition, and exemplified what it meant to have genuine appreciation.
The love that her husband’s parents, George and Ronnie Jackson, had for her was returned tenfold. She was a remarkable Aunt to her three nieces, and she took great pride in the role of Godmother, which she held in the highest regard. Stephanie had several father figures and male role models throughout her life, including Dan Spaulding, Jeff Sodd, Bob Bernhoft, Danny Meyer, Andy Stern, John Rigos, and George Jackson, in addition to her heavenly Father. These men were present at different times of Stephanie’s life. She felt an overwhelming sense of gratitude toward them for the emotional impact they had.
