As a proud U.S. Army veteran, Cleopha served his country during the Vietnam conflict, embodying the values of honor, courage, and sacrifice. His service was a source of pride for him throughout his life.

Cleopha’s family will deeply miss his presence, his wisdom, and his unwavering support. He leaves behind a legacy of love and guidance that will continue to inspire generations to come.

He is survived by his sons Cleopha Jackson Jr. and wife Contesa, DeMarcus Deon Jackson and wife Jacqueline Mueller, daughter Jonina Titus and husband Kendal Titus, grandchildren Ayana Yancey, Donasia Jackson, Johnathan Jackson, Sia Mueller, and Caden Mueller, great-grandchildren Ayla Yancey and Quintin Yancey.
