“You’re going to be a Doctor” -Doris “Denise” Jackson


Mother, Friend, Queen…

As a mother, she was the most inspiring person I’ve ever met in my life. From birth she made sure we knew we could overcome any obstacles. Before her departure she left behind two daughters and one son. She also left behind a loving mother, Pauline, three brothers and one sister. She was a true Queen in the way she carried herself by transforming from a girl to a mother of three children. She had a vision, one that was short lived. Thru the Doris Denise Jackson Foundation Inc. in collaboration with the Doris Denise Jackson DReamergency Walk, the DDJ Scholars, her children, grandchildren, siblings, friends, family in Columbus, GA, Tallahassee, Fl, Detroit, MI, and other parts of the world, her memory lives on. This is a reminder to never stop fighting for your DReams and always inspire your kids. – Dr. Shon
