Thanksgiving Event Goes On Despite Founder’s Death

Posted on November 18, 2016

SOUTH LOS ANGELES — Colleagues, friends, and family are still mourning the Nov. 1 death of Jackson Limousine founder E.J. Jackson, even as they prepare for his annual Thanksgiving grocery giveaway.

“Mr. Jackson was all heart. He never gave up on anyone,” said retired employee and family friend, Charlie Jamm. “He helped [many] that were unemployable, and he never stopped believing in them.”

That big heart extended to the homeless and hungry, whom he fed every Thanksgiving through his E.J. Jackson Foundation. Friends say Jackson seemed to have prepared the organization for his death, so that his staff could continue distributing more than 12,000 meals to families in need, days after his funeral. His goal this year was to provide 20,000 meals.
