Deborah Ann Jackson was born March 3, 1954 to Shirley and Leon Jackson in San Diego, CA. She was the third born of ten children. Growing up she attended Logan Elementary and Memorial Jr. High School. Deb/ DJ is what everyone called her was the comedian of the family. She could make you laugh at the drop of a dime, and wouldn’t even realize it.
Deb had a love for music, and two-stepping. No matter what she was doing, cooking, cleaning, or just chilling if one of her songs came on such as “Step in the Name of Love” it was on, she would start stepping. She was the only one that could have a house full of kids cleaning and stepping at the same time.
Deborah had a way with words, especially her good-byes. One of which was, “See Ya Wouldn’t Want To Be Ya!”, and everyone’s all time favorite “I’ll Holla!”
On Monday October 7, 2019 Deborah was called home. She was preceded in death by mother Shirley Flournoy; father Leon Jackson; two sisters Darlen Flournoy and Velma Wallace; and one brother Morris Hayes.
Deborah leaves to cherish her memories four children Demetrius Stamps, Leroy Dill, Latonya Sharpe (son-in-law Roy Sharpe) and her four legged son Cisco Jackson; two sisters Jaunita and Alice Flournoy; six brothers Benjamin and Lester Flournoy, Johnny and Bobby Davis, Wendell and Vernon Jackson (sister-in-law Kimberly Jackson); one aunt Regina Tate who held a special place in her heart; stepmother Willie Ruth who she loved dearly; eleven grandchildren; five great-grandchildren; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends that will miss her dearly.
