About the Foundation

The Verne P Jackson and Rose Marie Jackson Charitable Trust was established by Verne P. Jackson under his Last Will and Testament dated 1/9/1992. Mr. Jackson created the trust to benefit those individuals that are physically handicapped. Mr. Jackson’s wife was permanently disabled and the couple were acutely aware of the financial demands confronting the physically handicapped. It was their belief that handicapped individuals can lead productive and rewarding lives if financial assistance was available.
