Tributes to Glenn Jackson
The one who put the sun into our sky
Who made every function so much alive
He was a true leader, they may say
Now it pains the heart to see him go away.
He was a handsome man with very big dreams
But someone didn’t acknowledge that, so it seems
Whether it was for politics, his job or money,
It doesn’t matter, he was like an uncle to me.
I don’t think that anyone could replace him
For what he had was something from deep within
I think he should be named a national hero
For he was one of the best men Vincentians will ever know
Without permission they put him to rest
But whom we love, God loves them best
Our very own, the only one,
Glenn Jackson is now gone.
N-Never to return

Glenn, we miss you, Who will shake us up?
Stimulate, educate, be provocative and entertaining
With topical issues?
That quick and sharp intellect –
Cut to the chase – no nonsense approach –
I loved that.
That search for the truth – The beautiful and clever interviews.
That joie de vivre! No one else on radio could move people
and mobilize them to action like you did!
Oh that we could have had you for a longer time – But in God we trust.
Rest in the arms of the Lord, Glenn!
And may justice roll down like thunder – In Jesusâ name!
Despite the shock, grief and sadness, we are remembering
You and the joy and pride you had in doing what
You loved and doing it so well!
You have left your mark.
