Cleveland (Cleve) Jackson
Passed on February 22nd, 2001 Following a long fight with diabetes and other health problems, our good friend Cleve passed away, at Kaiser Hospital in San Diego. His funeral on March 22nd was attended by representatives of nearly every department of PSA and a large gathering of friends and family. He was born Cleveland Jackson on March 19th, 1934, in Jacksonville, TX. When he was just a toddler, Cleve's mother and father moved him, his three brothers and a sister to San Diego. He grew up on Dells Drive, attended Stockton Elementary, Memorial Junior High, and went on to San Diego High School where he was active in sports. Some of the track records he posted high school and the San Diego Boy's Club still stand. An extremely talented golfer, Cleve won many community and company tournaments. He graduated high school in 1952 and attended San Diego City College while working full-time at Convair and a part time at a fledgling airline known as PSA. Cleve was a major part ot the airline family for 32 dedicated years. Known to nearly every officer and employee of the company, Cleve was a genius at fulfilling his job as Director of Interior and Aircraft Appearance while taking on many other tasks. Because he could'nt say no to his friends, Cleve always found time to accomplish jobs completely out of his job description. He leaves his wife Gerrie Lanatte jackson (also a long time and popular employee of PSA), a son, a sister, brother, three grand-daughters and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. Fly with the Angels Cleve we knew you and loved you.
