Charles Franklin Jackson Jr. was born on September 20th, 1959, and passed away on December 9th, 2021, at the age of 62 years old.
Charles, also known as Vic, was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan. As a young man he played basketball and dreamed of one day becoming a professional ball player. Vic attended Henry Ford High School in Detroit, Michigan. Shortly after high school, he pursued his longtime friend and former classmate, Jaqui Jackson. They married and had two daughters, Whitney and Shayna.
Vic had a special love for motorcycles. His grandmother, Eltee, bought him his first bike when he was 16 years old. His fondest memory was riding motorcycles with his father and brothers. In his spare time, he was known for his love of Classic Rock-and-Roll music. His favorite instrument was the bass guitar. He also liked watching western films, cartoons, and especially loved biblical movies.
Spending time with family ultimately meant the most to Vic in his lifetime. He was mostly reserved, but around family he was a natural comedian, had an infectious laugh, and he was legendary for making up songs and phrases that his loved ones still use to this day, and will continue to use for years to come. He will be greatly missed.
Vic is preceded in death by his father, Charles F. Jackson Sr., and by his brother, Marvin S. Jackson.
Vic is survived by his mother, Mozenia Jackson, daughters, Whitney Jackson and Shayna Jackson, granddaughters, Trenae Wallace, Seniya Wallace and Toni Jackson, siblings, Larry Jackson, Serbrina Jackson, David Jackson, Cyderia Rush and Chadontia Smith, and by a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, friends, and extended family members.
