Hundreds gather to celebrate the life of Miami Central band leader Bobby Jackson Jr., who struck a chord with students
...
Jackson, 32, had been band director at Miami Central Senior High, where he had continued the school's storied success.
Back in the band room, the magic was beginning, as the tubas, trumpets and trombones coaxed a smile from Bernadel.
Bernadel, a sophomore at Florida A&M University, was the high school band's first drum major when Jackson arrived at Central four years ago.
"He was a friend, a father figure . . . someone I could always depend on," said Bernadel."He also taught me discipline."
In the world of marching bands, one characterized by flair and showmanship, friends said Jackson seemed always composed amid the flamboyance.
As drum major, he was the band's leader, its field marshal under Jackson's watchful eye.It's about the music -- getting the music right, the dancing will come later -- Jackson told Bernadel and the rest of his students.
Jackson spent up to 13 hours a day writing music and coaching the band.
...
"Bobby made superior."
On the marching band scale, excellent is a notch under superior.
Jackson's office, untouched since his death, reflects his dedication.Music flash cards and notes adorn his desk while plaques hang from the walls.
...
Jackson understood its importance.
'He would tell me, `I gotta keep these kids in the band,' " said Band Booster president Pernell Sumner."Bobby didn't want them getting into trouble. . . . The band was a way of keeping many of them in school."
Jackson bought uniforms, paid for textbooks and served as a counselor.

Jackson left his mark on area softball
...
Former FAMU pitcher/infielder Robert Jackson Jr. was on the mound pitching in a softball tournament in Huntsville, Ala. Jackson complained about feeling dizzy.
...
I was there thinking (Jackson) was going to come through."
It didn't matter any more that Smith and Jackson were playing a game well past midnight, trying to help their team advance in the tournament.
...
It has been 2½ weeks since Jackson's death from an unknown cause - an undeserved fate for a 37-year-old.
Jackson leaves a legacy as one of Tallahassee's most tenacious softball players and a man who through the game put the city in the national spotlight.
He'd quietly established Tallahassee as a place where some of the nation's best softball players came each year to play in the Capital City Invitational, a major event on the Black American Softball Association circuit.
The tournament has national appeal because it's a qualifier for the BASA World Tournament.But even more, Jackson grew the event to the point that it pumped $1.5million into the city's economy each summer.
The event will go on for a fifth year as the Robert "19" Jackson Memorial Tournament.It was too important to him to let go, said Jackson's sister, Roshannon.She and his fianc,e, Kessla Stanley, will make sure it happens on Aug.12-13.
