Reverend Carlton Jackson, Jr. was born on February 6, 1936, in the picturesque town of Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas, VI. He was the cherished son of Minerva Venzen and Carlton Jackson, Sr., and the eldest of two siblings, with his brother, Phillip Mulraine (deceased), adopted sister Florence Mulraine, and sister Mariet Matthias (deceased) completing his beloved family circle.
At the age of 17, Carlton embarked on a journey of personal growth and discovery, leaving his tropical home to make a new life in New York. Little did he know that this pivotal move would lead him to a fateful encounter with the love of his life, Marie Jackson (née Johnson). Marie traveled to New York at 18 years old from the small town of Holly Hill, SC. On January 29, 1956, they took their vows and began a remarkable journey together, a journey that would span an impressive 67 years, a testament to their enduring love and commitment.
Carlton brought his firstborn son, Andrew Jackson (deceased), with him to this union. In their marriage, Carlton and Marie were blessed with four children: Carolyn Green (née Jackson), Paul M. Jackson, Minerva T. Gatling (née Jackson), and Carlton L. Jackson.
Carlton was a man of many talents and an unwavering work ethic. Before traveling to New York, he served as a chef in Bluebeard’s Castle in St. Thomas, VI. In the early part of their marriage, Carlton enlisted in the U.S. Army where he served in the Korean War as a culinary specialist. For 25 years, he served Exxon Mobil as a dedicated diesel mechanic, an achievement made all the more impressive by the fact that he never missed a day of work. His commitment to excellence extended beyond retirement, as he embarked on a second career as a security guard, dedicating another decade to his work.
Reverend Carlton Jackson, Jr. was not only a provider but also a spiritual guide, and in 1961, he became a founding member of the Deliverance Revival Tabernacle, a church that held a special place in his heart. Over the years, he contributed his talents and service in various roles, from sound technician to ministry, touching the lives of many with his faith, wisdom, and devotion.
Aside from his immediate family, Carlton leaves behind a vast and loving network of relatives, including cousins, numerous nieces, nephews, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and even great-great-grandchildren. His caring spirit extended to the support he provided to his niece and nephew, Betty and Dale Matthias, as they made the transition from St. Thomas to the mainland.
Reverend Carlton Jackson, Jr. was a man of integrity, a loving husband, a dedicated father, and a faithful servant of God. His legacy of hard work, unwavering faith, and unconditional love will continue to inspire and guide generations to come. As we bid farewell to this remarkable soul, we find solace in the knowledge that his spirit lives on in the hearts of those he touched.
Funeral services to honor Reverend Carlton Jackson, Jr. will be held on Monday, September 18th, 2023, at Deliverance Revival Tabernacle 298 High St, Duxbury, MA 02332. We gather not to say goodbye but to celebrate a life well-lived and to find comfort in our shared memories of a truly extraordinary man.
