Spence Jackson memorial services set

Friends of Spence Jackson have announced plans for a memorial service and recommended donations to two funds in lieu of flowers.

Services will be held at Greenlawn East in Springfield, Mo. Visitation is Thursday April 9th from 6-8 p.m., and the funeral will be held the next day at 1:00 p.m.

Donations to the the Spence Jackson Family Fund can be sent to Morgan Stanley, 1535 E Primrose, Springfield, MO 65804.

The money will go to his family.

Donors can also give to the Spence Jackson Memorial Scholarship Fund at Missouri State University through the school’s foundation, 300 South Jefferson, Springfield, MO 65806.

Jackson, the spokesman for the late Tom Schweich, took his own life last Friday.

“Please keep the family in your thoughts and prayers,” Jeff Layman, a friend of Jackson’s, said in an email.
