Terrell Jackson Death, Obituary – The demise of Lt. Terrell Jackson is something that the Escambia County Fire Rescue Department announces with a heavy heart. On Monday, January 9, he had a medical emergency and ultimately lost his battle with death. He has reached the age of 38. In 2007, Lt. Jackson started out as a volunteer firefighter with the East Coast Fire Rescue, beginning his time there with the Ferry Pass Volunteer Fire Department. Jackson started working as a fireman on a full-time basis on July 18, 2013.
He exemplified a kind and hard-working work ethic throughout his career as a firefighter. On October 2, 2021, due to his exceptional leadership and qualities, he was promoted to the rank of lieutenant. Terrell Jackson continued to demonstrate his dedication and love for the profession even after being promoted to the rank of lieutenant. He did this by mentoring other firefighters and serving as the company officer on a variety of various tasks. His acts have always served as a model for others to follow, and he has been referred to as a “firefighter’s firefighter.”
“Lt. Jackson has been a long-time member of the ECFR family and has served not only his neighborhood but also his country,” said Deputy Fire Chief Paul Williams. “Not only has he served his town, but he has also served his country.” “I wish that his family, friends, and brother and sister firefighters will find peace in knowing that his legacy and memory will go on,” said the firefighter. The loss of Terrell Jackson will be deeply felt, and the void that his passing creates will be difficult, if not impossible, to fill.
During this trying time, ECFR begs that you remember his family and the fire family in your thoughts and prayers. As a Navy veteran and a fireman, Lt. Jackson exemplified the highest level of public service, according to Fire Chief Jason Catrambone. “He was the epitome of what it means to be a public servant,” Catrambone said. “He devoted his life to being of service to those in his community. He will be remembered, and we will miss having him here.”
