Jamestown area citizens are invited to a dramatization titled “Meet Bob Jackson” at a community gathering on the evening of September 19 at 305 E. 4th Street, organized by his personal assistant. Mr. Jackson, a local attorney, is active in the community and has practiced law in the city of Jamestown since 1913. Jackson has served in the Jamestown community with distinction, and has been vital in the defense of the law on many occasions. His practice areas include state, local and municipal law, general and civil litigation, personal injury, property, and environmental litigation. Jackson has also been involved with the statewide Democratic Party, and has held offices within many local organizations. In November 1930, Jackson took the Scottish Rite degrees in the Valley of Jamestown, New York. Jackson and his family make their home on Fairmont Avenue.
Based on local author and historian Helen Ebersole’s recently updated book, Off the Pedestal: Jackson in Jamestown 1909-1932, this dramatization enables audience members to learn about Bob Jackson’s early years, professional, and community pursuits before his career took him to Washington, D.C. Patrons are encouraged to come early as seating will be on a first come, first served basis. Please contact the Jackson Center (716)483-6646 with inquiries. A suggested voluntary donation of $10.00 per person can be made at the door for this unique and entertaining program.
