Ronald Stephen Jackson


Ronald Stephen Jackson, age 70, Thinker, Poet, Actor was a man of indelible wit, gregarious character, and audacious ideas.
Born to educators George and Aurola 'Rodi" Jackson in Morehead, KY, in 1948, his love of literature and the arts was instilled early on.
He sought fervently to weave together ideas and dreams, both for himself and those around him. A master of the written word, he penned poetry, prose, and plays that added rich color and texture to the world. These talents led him to create The Idea Farm, Inc. a marketing firm operated by Ron and wife, Martha Jackson, in Danville, KY.
His unconditional love for the wife and children, Graham and Emma, drove his vivacity for life in every aspect. The family will receive visitors from 1-4pm on March 30 at 464 West Broadway St. in Danville, KY.
In lieu of flowers, donations to the Danville Community Arts Center or West T. Hill Community Theatre are greatly appreciated.

Martha, Graham & Emma - I enjoyed visiting at your home and the times meeting with Ron & Martha at The Hub coffee shop. Always gracious hosts and great conversationalist. Praying his legacy carries on through the many talents he shared and the "ideas and dreams" he held dear.

Martha, Emma and Graham,
I am so sorry to hear of Ron’s passing. You two were, what seemed like, the perfect couple.
I will keep you in my prayers.
