Mr. David Keith Jackson, 51, of Swainsboro passed away Tuesday, May 5, 2020, at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta following a brief illness.


Mr. Jackson was born April 14, 1969 in Millen to J. L. Jackson and Cecilia Holton Jackson.  He was preceded in death by his father.  Mr. Jackson was credit manager at Farmers Furniture. Keith was born in Millen and graduated from Jefferson County High School in 1986. He was a devoted Christian, father, and employee. Keith loved Sunday mornings when we would teach Sunday school and be with his church family in Dellwood. Keith was a faithful man and always stepped outside of his comfort zone. He worked for Farmer’s Furniture and served in various positions over the years. He was inducted into the “President’s Club” for five years in a row. He was very proud of that accomplishment. Although Keith was committed to his career and church, his real passion was being a daddy. He was a true family man and loved to brag on his children when he would speak to someone. Keith was so outgoing and always said, “Looking good, feeling good!” We know he is looking good and feeling his best in Heaven. 


Survivors include his wife, Kimi Kight Jackson of Swainsboro; mother, Cecilia Jackson of Louisville; sons, David (Caitlyn) Jackson and Remington Jackson, both of Swainsboro; daughters, Victoria (Mitchell) Cowart of Twin City, Redleigh Jackson of Swainsboro; brothers; Michael Jackson and DeWayne Jackson, both of Louisville; grandson, Drew Jackson of Swainsboro; several nieces, nephews, and many friends.
