In memory of
John Howard Jackson
Jackson, John Howard 4/6/1932 - 11/7/2015 Ann Arbor John Howard Jackson, age 83, died peacefully on Saturday 7 November surrounded by family and friends at the Glacier Hills Senior Living Community in Ann Arbor Michigan. He was born on 6 April 1932 in Kansas City, Missouri to Howard and Lucille (Deischer) Jackson. John obtained his undergraduate degree from Princeton University's Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs and his law degree from the University of Michigan. John was a scholar, mentor and expert in International Economic Law. During his career at the University of Michigan Law School and subsequently as the Director of the Institute for International Economic Law at Georgetown University Law Center he trained hundreds of students. He maintained lifelong relationships with them and through his connections fostered the development of a global community of legal experts dedicated to understanding and influencing the regulation of international economic relations through international trade. He was deeply curious and enjoyed the challenge of exploring unfamiliar subject areas to develop new insights. While committed to academic inquiry, he was especially fond of spending time with his family around the dinner table where discussions were less structured. John is survived by his wife, Joan Leland, of 53 years, his three daughters Jeannette, Lee Ann (John Breckenridge) and Michelle (Francis Ledesma), and four grandchildren Madeleine, John, Sam, and Christopher. In lieu of flowers, memorials can be made in John's name to a fund for student scholarships in international law at Georgetown University Law Center. Contributions to the John H. Jackson Scholarship Fund can be made by visiting www.law.georgetown.edu/makeagift or sending a check made out to Georgetown University Law Center, please note on the memo/other line: John H. Jackson Scholarship.
