Cheri Jackson


Cheri Lynn Maierle Jackson

Cheri Lynn Maierle Jackson, a resident of Cleveland since 1989, joined the Church eternal on Wednesday, Feb. 28, 2018. 

She was born in Memphis on Oct. 24, 1956, to the late C. A. and Elizabeth Blair Maierle.  

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her brother, Blair Maierle. 

She leaves behind loving family members, including her husband of nearly 33 years, Dr. Steve Jackson; four children: Stephen William Jackson II and his wife, Gentry Pace Jackson, Tyler Reid Jackson, Rachael Blair Jackson and Daniel Philip Jackson; her first grandchild, Emory Elizabeth Jackson; and several members of her extended family as well as countless friends from the Cleveland area, Broad St. United Methodist Church, and the Memphis area. 

The family will receive friends at Broad Street United Methodist Church on Sunday, March 4, 2018, from 2 to 4 p.m.  A celebration service of the life of Cheri Jackson will follow. 

She was a registered nurse at Methodist Hospital in Memphis from 1978 through 1989.  Her most important profession, however, was to raise four beautiful children and to serve as their mentor in life. 

She was an active member of Broad St. United Methodist Church and was active in both the children’s and youth ministries. She also co-taught an adult Sunday School class for the past 10 years.  Her hobbies included traveling, photography and spending time with family and friends. 

In lieu of flowers, please send donations to Broad St. United Methodist Church. 

You are invited to share a personal memory of Cheri, or your condolences with her family, at her online memorial located at 

Companion Funeral and Cremation Service and the Cody family are honored to assist the Jackson family with these arrangements.
