Derrick Gage Jackson, 30, of Golconda, went to be with the Lord on Thursday May the 14th.
Gage began blessing his parents Frank Jackson and Cathy (Foreman) Jackson on April 1st, 1990. He accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior, followed by baptism, in 2004. Gage graduated Pope County High School in 2008 and continued his education at Southeastern Illinois College on a baseball scholarship. He had a huge love for the game of baseball from an early age. He enjoyed hunting, riding four-wheelers, and being outdoors. Gage served four years of active duty in the United States Marine Corp, complete with one tour in Afghanistan. He was honorably discharged and returned home to his family in August 2014.
