Quincy, Florida - Sergeant Eddie Jackson, of Bainbridge, returned from Iraq just two months ago. Last Thursday, he was hit by a suspected drunk driver and killed.
"This is a tremendous loss. He was a great person so everybody's going to miss him. He loved his family. He loved his motorcycle and he was an extremely hard worker and a great soldier," said Capt. Alice Hampton, Commander of the 1148th Transportation Company.
"He was a loving husband," says Pam Jackson. "He loved me and I loved him and he loved his kids."
His daughter, 9 year old Ni'Jala says, "My daddy, he's a very special man and I love him very much."
"We had a great time. The 10 years that we were married, we had a beautiful time and I couldn't have asked for a better husband," says Pam. "We were hoping that we'd grow old together, but God knows best. At least God gave me a few moments to be with him before he took him away."
"He was a hero," says Ni'Jala.
Eddie Jackson will be buried Saturday at Arlington National Cemetery.
