Parliamentarians observed the passing of long-time civil servant Vernon L. Jackson.

Mr. Jackson was a marriage officer, an educator and held positions across the public sector – in social services, education, communications, infrastructure and human resources.

Earlier this year, the Bodden Town Library was renamed for Mr. Jackson, recognising his service and dedication to the country.

In addition to serving as Director of Education, Mr. Jackson was also the Administration Secretary for Education and Social Services, a post now known as Chief Officer. “In Mr. Jackson’s words, the greatest privilege in life is to have been of service to your fellow-man and to have earned their respect. The Cayman Islands has lost a true servant of the people, a gentleman and a friend. He will be sorely missed. May his soul rest in peace,” said Premier Hon. Alden McLaughlin.

Mr. Jackson passed away on Sunday. He was 87-years-old.
