The Obituary
JERRY ALLISON, son of the late Albert Kenneth Jackson and Jenny Alberta Garcia, was born in Chicago, Illinois on March 6, 1927. While living in Bridgeport, Connecticut. He was educated in the Prospect, Connecticut school system. He graduated high school in 1944 at the Central High School of Bridgeport Connecticut.
He was united in holy matrimony on December 4, 1961 to the late Mrs. Eleanore Pate Jackson. From this union, they received a beautiful daughter, Kim Lang Jackson.
Jerry settled into the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania area as his permanent residence during the later portion of his life. He was a lover of life. He enjoyed music and entertainment. One of his greatest joys was his grandchildren.
To the end, Jerry was a strong willed man who lived life each day like it was his last. He truly embraced life and touched people. He will always be fondly remembered for his fashionable style of dress, his affectionate and charming personality and his ability to immediately make friends no matter where he went.
He leaves to mourn his loss: a loving and caring daughter, Kim Lang Clemons; a son-in-law, Anthony Clemons, Sr.; three grandchildren, Anthony Clemons, Jr., Amber Lang Clemons and Ashley Lynn Clemons; a sister-in-law, Mrs. Ruby Pate Taylor; three nephews, Mr. Steven Pate, Sr., Mr. Stefan Pate and Mr. Sean Pate-Taylor; and a host of other family and friends.
