In memory of
Earle A. Jackson Jr.
SCARBOROUGH - Earle A. Jackson Jr., 87, of Scarborough, Maine, died Aug. 6, 2019. He was born in Portland, Maine, on Aug. 9, 1931, the son of Earle and Blanche (Libby) Jackson. He attended schools in Portland and Cumberland Center, graduating from Greely Institute in 1949. Earle also graduated from Portland Junior College and Bryant College of Providence, Rhode Island, as well as completing a management program at the University of Southern Maine. He has lived in Scarborough since 1961 and summered at Panther Pond in Raymond for many years. Earle was active in sports in his youth and was on the first Greely team to win the Triple C Baseball Championship. He also played baseball at Portland Junior College and the U.S. Marine Corp during the Korean War, as well as several semi pro teams in Maine over the years. He was on the 1950 Portland Twilight League Championship team and later coached Babe Ruth League teams. After working thirty years with the Internal Revenue Service in Maine and other states as a Revenue Agent, Group Manager, and Large Case Manager, he retired from the IRS in 1986 and became a partner in Earle Jackson Associates of South Portland, Maine, a tax and accounting partnership. Earle was a public accountant and enrolled agent and represented many clients in their dealings with the IRS during his public accounting years. He has been a member of the Maine Society of Public Accountants before retiring from tax and accounting work in 1997. In retirement he enjoyed remodeling and repairing his home. He was also a member of the National Association of Retired Federal Employees. Shortly after retirement, on Mother's Day 1997, Earle's wife Virginia tragically lost her life. Earle was very proud of his wife and the Virginia Jackson Scholarship Fund set up in his wife's name at Scarborough High School given to a graduating senior writing an essay about their mother and how their mother had helped them in a time of need. This in memory of Ginny's loving and caring ways. Earle and his family summered for 42 years at their camp in Raymond at Panther Pond. His interests included all sports whether on television or in attending the games, home maintenance, volunteering, and keeping up with the family that includes his son, Robert E. Jackson of Scarborough; a daughter, Beverly R. Linnell and her husband, Stephen, of Bangor; a daughter, Carol L. Schmerbeck and her husband, Robert, of Fairless Hills, Pa.; five grandchildren, and four great-grandchildren. Earle had great love of German Shepherd dogs and had several during his lifetime with Sadie being his last one. A private committal service will be held at a later time. Arrangements have been entrusted to Hobbs Funeral Home, Scarborough, Maine. Online condolences may be expressed at www.hobbsfuneralhome.com . Contributions may be made to the Maine Veterans' Home 290 US Route 1 Scarborough, ME 04074 in lieu of flowers.
