Evelyn Marie Jackson was born on May 1, 1960, to the union of Stephen Turner Jackson, Sr. and Oda Anita Lockwood, in Chicago, Illinois.
Evelyn attended Chicago Public Schools and the Dawson Tech Institute, where she received her Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) certificate. She was a diligent worker. Throughout her career, she served as a manager for numerous restaurants. Evelyn moved to Madison, Wisconsin, in the early 90’s. She had a natural inclination to help others. She was an Employment Specialist at the Madison Urban League for their Pre-Employment Program which entailed finding jobs for teens and monitoring their progress and molding them for the future workforce. She continued her passion to help other by using her CNA skills as a Health Care provider with Bright Star Care-Madison. She loved caring for her patients and treated them like her family.
Evelyn was a devoted member of Mount Zion Baptist Church. She loved her church family and was active in several ministries such as the Sunday School, the Usher Board, and the Women’s Ministry, to name a few. She was also known to her church family as the “Church Selfie Queen” because she was often seen taking selfies with various members of the church and the pictures were later posted on her Face Book page.
On January 3, 1975, Evelyn experienced her greatest joy, the birth of her son, Shaw M. Jackson. She and Shaw were inseparable. When you saw them together, you could see and feel the strong bond that they had. She cherished her son until the very end.
Evelyn departed this life on Wednesday, December 23, 2020, at 11:50 p.m. She was proceeded in death by her parents, Stephen and Oda Anita; Stepparents, Andrew Grover and Lucille Jackson; Brother James Jackson; Her grandparents; Four aunts and four uncles.

Jackson, Jr.; Sisters: AllieRea (Charlie Davis), LaJewel (Artis Harbin), Cheryl (Carl Johnson) Sherri Grover; Brothers Stephen T Jackson, Jr., Shawn Jackson and Raymond Jackson; Aunts, Eskin Smyles and Celia Lloyd of Chicago, IL; Uncle, James Smyles Jr of Beaufort, NC; a host of nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews, other relatives and friends.

Evelyn brought a lot of laughs & smiles to faces when she was around. She had a very memorable personality & stood out as an usher, big booming voice & great smile! A kind heart always ready to give. I am so saddened by her passing & will miss her dearly.
