Obituary for Mike C. Jackson

Mike Jackson, a resident of Milford and a native of Flint, died at home on December 25, 2018 at the age of 43.


Mike was born on May 24, 1975 in Flint, Michigan, the son of Charles and Sondra (nee. Mathis) Jackson. From an early age, Mike displayed an outgoing, happy nature and a propensity for sports. He graduated from Carman-Ainsworth High School in Flint and was a three-sport athlete, competing in basketball, football and track. Following high school, Mike earned a Bachelor’s degree in business from Michigan State University. Mike enjoyed his career in business development with Denso and Telenav.

In December of 1998, Mike Jackson met the young Kimberly MacDonald through a mutual friend. The couple quickly fell in love and were married on October 12, 2001 and made their home in Milford. Often called “Mr. Milford”, Mike loved all things Milford and, of course, Michigan State. He was incredibly gregarious and magnetic - he treated every moment and meeting as an opportunity to make a new friend. A true “yes man”, he was drawn to people and was always available to help a person in need. Most of all, Mike loved his family. He was a devoted husband and a loving father. His children were his greatest treasures — he was a proud coach and honored to be a dance dad. He will always be remembered for his kind, fun-loving, free spirit and the impact and legacy he left with his family, his many friends and all those he met.

He leaves his beloved wife, Kim; his dear children, Lauren, Sophie and Calvin; his parents, Charlie and Sandy Jackson; his sister, Lynn (Bob) Leschuk; in-laws, Dick and Nancy MacDonald; brother-in-law, Dan (Jenny) MacDonald; nephews, Tyler Leschuk, Jake MacDonald; nieces, Emily Leschuk and Cameron MacDonald; best friend, Brian (Mike Monzon) Irving, as well as extended family members, many many friends and his sweet dog, Harper.
