  1. Dear family of Ted Jackson. This is Navy thanking Army for the unselfish sacrifice your wonderful ‘Ted’ and his family gave during his time in service. My father, Arnold Carl Ogren also served with the 104th Timberwolves during World War II. He left us in August 2010. We all owe a debt we can never repay to those men and women who gave so much that we have our precious freedoms. Thank you and God bless.

  2. Dear Sue and Family,
    Please accept my sincerest condolences. I feel very privledged to have been able to meet Ted and get to know him at the Villages. Ted was a great person with a huge heart. He was loved, and will be missed by so many. Please know that your family is in my thoughts and prayers at this difficult time.

  3. Dear Sue and Jackson Family,
    I write this with great sorrow to know that we have lost Ted. I have great joy that I got to know him even a little bit. He was a wonderful and thoughtful man. He will be missed by so many people. You are all in my thoughts & hope that your memories are always first in your hearts and minds as they will be in mine. Bless you all. Sheila

  4. I am saddened by Ted’s no longer being at our 4th Tuesday noon sessions. His perceptions about subjects were always insightful. A true renaissance man for the group. He will be missed, his family has our sympathy.

  5. I was so sorry to read of Ted’s passing. Sue and Ted were friends of my late mother, Geraldine Elliott, and she and Ted performed together at Woodland Village as well. Hope they’re forming a new band somewhere …

  6. I will turn home at last once more
    Knowing that a true soldier’s rest
    Once earned is sweet
    His peace complete
    Who gave until the last his best

  7. Ted and I worked together in what was then called Color Tech at Kodak Park in Bldg. 65 during the ’50s. He was particularly helpful to on a project I was pursuing in the mid ’50s by providing for me the necessary statistical analysis of the data I was gathering. I was not a statistician and without his help I would not have been able to complete the job. He was a pleasure to work with. I send you my heartfelt condolences on your loss,
