Julien Felix Jackson entered into eternal peaceful rest on November 1, 2021 at his place of residence in Akron, Ohio at the age of 35.
Julien Felix Jackson was born on February 8, 1986 in the city of Warren, Ohio to parents Felix and Shirley (Burkett) Jackson.
Julien began his life journey residing in Alliance, Ohio where he attended the Marlington Local School District. Julien was a member of the school band where he played the trombone. He performed in many school plays and concerts over the years there. During one high school concert, he had the opportunity to show off his drum skills by playing a solo performance. During his last two years of high school he enrolled in the Auto Body Vocational Program at Alliance City High School, where he received much praise and an outstanding academic distinction in completing the task of reconstructing a wrecked vehicle. He worked as a teenager around town at the local pizza shops, Applebee’s as a short order cook, and Walmart as a cashier.
Julien graduated from Marlington High School, Class of 2004. He furthered his education by attending Brown Mackie College in Canton, Ohio. Upon graduation he received an Associate’s Degree in Medical Assisting, Class of 2007.
Julien was a very happy and kindhearted person who loved to laugh and have fun times with his family and friends, always greeting them with a smile, a quick hug or a hand or elbow bump, and of course his firm handshake with his elders and church family.
Julien much enjoyed, in his spare time, being a food delivery person for Door Dash, etc. He even designed a spill proof drink carrier/cooler bag and was in the process of getting a patent for it. The patent company thought it was a great idea.
Julien loved to cook and try out new spicy dishes and was really good at banana pudding which he would share with his Uncle Leroy. He loved to play ball with his friends and loved working out at the YMCA with his sister Shannon.
Julien looked up to his older brothers Haven and Marcus, seeking their advice on many things. On occasion he would ride along with his parents to travel to Virginia to enjoy time with Haven and family. Always finding time to cookout and to definitely go eat seafood from The Fisherman’s Wharf in D.C.
Over the years he had a lifetime of joy being around his family and his extended family, whom he was so very fond of. They ate together, played games together, and played music together.
Julien was a lifetime member of the Supreme Council of the House of Jacob of the United States Inc., attending the local mission of Warren, Ohio. He attended services faithfully being baptized at a young age in Bethlehem Township, Coshocton, Ohio. Julien had a love and passion for music, playing the drums during church devotional services. He was a member of the Warren Church “Heavenly Sounds” musical group where he played the trombone. He was also a member of the Supreme Council of the House of Jacob National Ensemble musical group where he also played the trombone.
Every chance he would get after church service was over, he would go grab his father’s bass guitar and start playing it.
Julien was always excited when time came to go to church summer camp and church picnics. He loved traveling near and far to church activities and services being able to meet and greet the church members of other state missions. He was always ready when the time came to meet for National Ensemble practice in Washington, D.C. These things gave him so much joy and fond memories.
Preceded in death by his grandfathers, Adrian Burkett and Thomas Jackson; grandmother, Eva Mae Jackson; uncles, Calvin Burkett and Phillip Jackson; aunts, Cassie Burkett-Bryson and Lisa Burkett.
