"Johnnie's Legacy"

Johnnie Curtis Jackson Jr. was born July 15, 1952 to Mr. Johnnie Curtis Sr. and Mrs. Eva Mae Jackson in Atlanta, TX.  He gained his wings May 23, 2021.  Johnnie was a devoted father, son, husband, brother, nephew, cousin and friend who loved everyone and everyone loved him.  Johnnie was always quick to give kind words to others and encourages and supports others efforts.  His greatest pleasure was when all our families gathered together for a joyous occasion, where delicious food was abundant.  He was educated in Houston, TX and served in the United States Army.  He married JoAnn Blackmold and to this union two beautiful children were born, Brian and Tiffany.  Later in life Johnnie married Barbara Brown and was blessed to gain two more children, Charris and husband, Chris.  Johnnie and Barbara remained united until his passing.

Johnnie leaves to cherish his memory, wife, Barbara; sons, Brian and Chris; daughter, Tiffany and Charris; 11 grandchildren; brother, Terry; sisters, Ella, Sharon, Rosie.  He also leaves a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives and friends.  Father, Johnnie Sr., mother, Eva and sister, Deborah preceded him in death.  

Johnnie was know by many names, "Ploonk", "Big Baby", "Big'em" and was called "Buddy Jr." and often teased about how much he looked like our father.  He even took on the roll, and was quick to give unwanted advice and rules.  We have had many great laughs about it, however we all ended up doing whatever he said.

We all love you so, so much and will most assuredly miss you terribly.

Memories Timeline


  1. Scripture says that weeping remains for a night, but rejoicing will come in the morning. When we are grieving, the weeping seems like it will go on forever. Our spirits long for a way to rejoice again. The God who promised an end to your weeping will restore rejoicing in time. He is by your side through every single moment of weeping. The Lord is your light in the darkness, and your hope in the moments of despair. It is my pray that God's presence will bring comfort to you as He wraps you in the warmth of His love.

    A blessing as an encouraging and motivating warrior he was. My last conversation with "Plunke", on Tuesday, May 11, 2021 and all other days sharing the word and prayer via the phone or visits, revealed his absolute true love for Jesus. On this day after reading two prayers and praying with him, he commented with amazing zeal, "I know Him Nina. I like talking to you Nina and I love you and your son". He touched my spirit and soul that will last throughout eternity.

    As I grew to know him- his spirit, during the past 6 years, he did not pray for an easy life, but rather he prayed for the strength to endure a difficult one.

    (Ecclesiastes 3:1-4)

  2. Being led by the Holy Spirit, the last prayer that I would read to "Plunke, Brother Johnnie Curtis Jackson, Jr. on May 11, 2021;

    "Let us run with perseverance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus the pioneer and perfector of our faith". ~Hebrews 12:1-2

    "God, this marathon of life sometimes leaves my feet sore and aching. But with the grace of your everlasting love, I know that I will be given new strength to lift me up and carry me along when my feet just cannot go on. You have always been there for me, and I know that you will always be there for me now, even when it appears that I am on my own. All I need to do is look within and I will see that I have someone running this marathon alongside me, offering a helping hand and an encouraging word when I think I cannot take one more step. Your amazing grace has kept me.

    The Footprint Prayer:

    One night a man had a dream.

    He dreamed he was walking along the beach with the Lord.
    Across the sky flashed scenes from his life.
    For each scene, he noticed two sets of footprints in the sand:
    one belonging to him, and the other to the Lord.

    When the last scene of his life flashed before him,
    he looked back at the footprints in the sand.
    He noticed that many times along the path of his life there was only one set of footprints.

    He also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times in his life. This really bothered him and he questioned the Lord about it.

    "Lord, You said that once I decided to follow you,
    You'd walk with me all the way.
    But I have noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life,
    there is only one set of footprints.

    I don't understand why, when I needed you most, you would leave me."

    The Lord replied,
    "My son, My precious child, I love you and I would
    never leave you. During your times of trial and
    suffering, when you see only one set of footprints,
    it was then that I Carried You."

    I am praying for you to get through this time with the peace that comes from the knowledge that God loves you and that He will take care of you.

    Minister Dr. Nina M. Morgan and Family
