In Memory of




Obituary for Grant Lee Jackson

Grant Jackson could fix anything; he was always looking for something to do, because he could never sit
still. His love of finding adventure was obvious to anyone that ever saw the spark in his blue eyes, and
the mischief in his smile.
On May 5 th , 2023, Grant Lee Jackson shed his earthly body and made his exit at the age of 28 in Hope
Mills, NC while cleaning out his beloved Chevy.
He was born August 16, 1994, to Brant and Jean Jackson in Fayetteville, NC, three weeks too early, but
too impatient to wait for his due date.
He is preceded in death by his loving sister Terri Taylor who passed away in 2010.
He is survived by his daughter Layla Marie Jackson and his wife, Celinda Jackson. He also leaves behind
his loving parents Brant and Jean Jackson, two sisters Kelly Moore and Amber Russ, and brother-in-law
Kevin Russ. He is also mourned by a plethora of nieces and nephews who Grant loved dearly and who he
was quick to take on adventures while camping on the annual family camping trip. These many happy
times will be remembered by those loving nieces and nephews: James Brown, Tyler Nelms, Chase
Nelms, Krystal McPhaul, Marah McPhaul, Marissa McPhaul, Dixie Russ, Warren Russ, Ava Abbott, and
Emma Russ.

He spent most of his life in Fayetteville and Hope Mills, and he never ventured far from his family, or
their cooking.

Those that knew Grant know that he loved old trucks, driving through the country, playing in the woods,
drawing, fixing things, spending time with friends and family, eating good food, and helping those in
need or anyone who was just plain lonely.

Grant was remembered by many as the person to call when something needed to be done. He was a
soft hearted soul who would drop everything to help someone else with no thought of a reward, he just
wanted to be helpful. Throughout his life, he donated his time to cutting yards, laying floors, doing
carpentry and plumbing work, fixing large and small engines, and rescuing his sisters more times than
they can count.

He will be forever missed by his loved ones.
Today, and forevermore, Grant flies free.
