Brent Lee Jackson, age 42, of Marion, passed away unexpectedly Saturday, January 27, 2018.

Brent was born in Marion, Ohio on December 7, 1975 to Chris Jackson and Lou Ann Carpenter-Jackson.  Brent attended the Harding High School and Tri-Rivers.  He was a skilled carpenter specializing in masonry. Recently, Brent worked in Marysville building roof trusses and floor joists. Brent could also fix anything mechanical and enjoyed tinkering with electronics. When he wasn’t working he was trying to help his mom and pops and always living life to the fullest.

Brent had a selfless and loyal personality always helping those in need while treating everyone like family. Brent was fun loving and also known very well as a gentle giant, he enjoyed working out and lifting weights. He was always getting on someone’s last nerve, but still able to make them laugh and smile in the meantime.

Brent will be missed by his mother and step-father, Lou Ann and Lony Bostic; father, Chris Jackson; son, Desean Jackson; sister, Beth (Jon Timmons) Bostic; a very special niece, Mercedes Timmons; aunts and uncles, Paul Dunn, and Bob and Patty Bostic; cousins, Derrick and Mike Dunn and Shane Jackson; grandmother, Anita Howell, and several cousins.
