Lawrence Jackson

November 10, 1954 – February 28, 2020

Lawrence “Larry” Jackson was born in Los Angeles, California.  Larry’s height and basketball talents quickly gained the attention of many high school coaches.  Larry was scouted to attend and play basketball for Blair High School in Pasadena, California where he helped lead them to multiple championships.  Larry stood out as a 6’11” Power Forward and was scouted by and played Basketball at the University of Washington in Seattle on a full scholarship where he received many championships, awards and accolades. Upon leaving college, he encountered a serious knee injury while trying out for the Seattle Supersonics – that ended his Pro career in the U.S.   After his recovery, Larry’s love of basketball and talents lead him to play Semi-Pro Basketball in the European Pro League over 5 years.

Larry returned to the United States where he worked at various jobs settling in the Los Angeles area.  He continued playing pickup Basketball at Venice beach and local parks.  Sports were a large part of Larry’s life as well as caring for his family.  He often attended basketball and football game with his beloved sister and brother –in- law.

Larry joins his father and mother (Lawrence Sr. and Birdie), grandmother and grandfather (Esther and Boyd), uncles and aunt (Richard, Joseph and Dorine) in a grand eternal after life.  May Gods blessings continue to enrich your soul.

  1. candle 4Today is Sunday. Twenty-two Sundays have come and gone since you were called to join mama and daddy in heaven. I so miss talking to you, for sure every Sunday you would call me most times when I’m in church (but I ALWAYS took your call). Oh how I miss you my brother. Birthdays, holidays and Sundays will never be the same. Although you will live forever in my heart, it is your physical being that I long to see again.
    I love you always brother!
    Your little sister Josette
