Dear chapter members, There will be a celebration of life for Amy and Dennis Jackson on Sunday, September 11, 2022 at 2:00 PM at Salem Convention Center, 200 Commercial St SE, Salem, OR 97301. You can leave memories, or send flowers by visiting the announcement on Dignity Memorial’s website. The following photo and eulogy were provided by Brent Anderson On August 21, 2021, Denny Jackson and his wife Amy were out flying his RV-8 in the local area near Scio, Oregon where some of Denny’s relatives live. There was an accident and the plane went down in a field. Denny was pronounced dead at the scene. Amy survived the crash with life-threatening injuries and was airlifted to a Salem hospital. She succumbed to her injuries later in the day. This news link contains the basic facts. More will be known as the NTSB does its investigation. I (Brent Anderson) came to be friends with Denny through our membership in EAA Chapter 105 around 1990. During the 90’s we both built RV-4s as did a few other chapter members. He finished his first and logged many enjoyable hours in it. When the RV-8 was introduced, Denny decided to build one, which he completed in 2004. He sold his RV-4 and flew the RV-8 exclusively from that point on up until the accident on August 21, 2022. Denny was an avid supporter of chapter activities and events throughout the duration of his chapter membership. He flew a total of 120 young eagles. He was a regular attendee and volunteer worker in chapter breakfasts, often bringing Amy with him. He made a number of trips to Airventure. He and I flew together with a few other chapter members on a couple of these trips. Denny was an outspoken champion of the American spirit of liberty and freedom in his thinking and in his activities. He was relentless in uncovering and sharing the real truths about important issues of our time and distributed his writings via email. I enjoyed having many discussions with him on broad-ranging topics over the years. Denny was a man of strong convictions, but also very kind and generous to his family and friends. He was a lover of animals, especially dogs, and was often seen with one around the grounds of his home at the Independence Airpark. We will greatly miss Denny and Amy. Our hearts go out to their families as they grieve the loss of their loved ones.
