My thoughts and prayers go out to the entire Jackson Family. My memories are very fond of Dr. Bill~ They go back to when I was just a little girl, sitting in Dr. Jimmy's office looking at the photo's that lined his office at the Goodlark Hospital. When I was but 13 the sweetest memory that I carry is when Dr. Bill was working as a Lab Tech before med school. He became quite close to my mother who was very ill and gave her great care and love...even before he was a physician. Dr. Bill made Medicine for the people~ People came 1st with Dr. Bill~ You were always a person first and patient second~ He went out of his way to spend time with you even as the waiting room was full~ He was honest, caring and always with a smile. He treated his nurses/staff with great respect. He loved his wife, children and grandchildren and always shared a story of his family life~ We have lost a treasure~ Thank you Dr. Bill for blessing us all with your gentleness over the years. God Bless you and your family. My prayers are with you~

I just got a copy of UT Alumni magazine to learn of Dr Bill's passing. I will remember him as a great teacher to medical students during my family practice rotation with him. I remembered his stories of going to med school in Mexico, advising me to plant walnut trees, about his camp for juvenile deliquents, his love of flying. I will especially treasure the day that he took the medical students flying and he let me fly his plane, but he did the landing.
Reach for the sky- Dr Bill
