Sarah M. Jackson, 42, of Trout Run, passed peacefully in her sleep on Friday, January 26, 2024, after her courageous battle with cancer.
Born April 27, 1981 in Williamsport, she was a daughter of the late Robert L. Jackson and Donna J. (Lose) Jackson of Trout Run.
Sarah's life, though shorter than we hoped, was lived to the fullest. Sarah graduated from Choctaw High School, Choctaw, OK, and then from Texas A&M with a Bachelor’s degree of Architecture in Environmental Design. She then went on to graduate with a Master’s degree in Historical Preservation from Savannah College of Art and Design. For 10 years, she worked for the United States Park Services in Natchitoches, LA and currently was working for General Services of the United States Government in Washington, D.C. as a Historical Preservation Specialist for the last five years.
Sarah left an indelible mark on the hearts of those she touched, and her memory will be cherished as a treasure in the story of their lives. She approached every day with a heart full of love and a soul ready to explore the beauty of the world. Above all, Sarah believed her greatest gift and accomplishment was her sweet daughter, Leigh.
She loved traveling, hiking, photography, entertaining and rescuing dogs. Over the years, Sarah opened her heart and home to rescue over 50 dogs, each one a cherished companion and a life saved by her kindness.
Surviving in addition to her mother, is her daughter, Leigh C. Jackson, a brother Jason Jackson (Jen Cathor) of Shippensburg, a niece Mackenzie Jackson, and many aunts, uncles, cousins, friends, and her fur-babies Lucy, Hank, and Penelope.
The family will receive friends from 2 to 3:30 p.m. Saturday, February 17 at Sanders Mortuary, 821 Diamond Street, Williamsport, followed by a memorial service at 3:30 p.m. Burial will be at the convenience of the family in Trout Run Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers or food memorial contributions in Sarah’s name may be made to a scholarship fund that has been set-up for her daughter, donations may be made to Donna Jackson c/o Leigh Jackson Scholarship Fund, PO Box 222 Trout Run, PA 17771
