Paul Wayman Jackson was born June 5, 1995 in Watertown, South Dakota. He was raised in Sioux Falls and attended All-City Elementary and Edison Middle School. Paul graduated from Brandon Valley High School in May of 2013. He was enrolled at Mitchell Technical Institute studying Power Line Maintenance and Construction.
Paul was a very active person. He played football, was a member of the Brandon Bass Fishing Club and loved to hunt whenever he could. His greatest passion was hunting and fishing with his dog, “U”. Paul started hunting at the early age of 4. He and his grandfather, Ron, could often be found at Lake Poinsett on the hunt. Paul was a hard worker. He worked at the Izaak Walton League, Brandon Steakhouse, Gann Valley Ranch as a guide and dog trainer, Menards, Oakland Irrigation and most recently at Cabela’s as a Waterfowl Specialist. Paul was very easy going with a huge smile, and he loved people. He would always go the extra mile to help anyone or to visit with any of his customers.
Paul will be deeply missed by his parents, Sindy (Scott) Wiertzema, Brandon and Steve (Carol Anne) Jackson, Sioux Falls; grandparents Ron and Sondra Timmer, Sioux Falls, Barbara Jackson, Sioux Falls, Nancy Wiertzema, Luverne, Minnesota, LuAnn Olson, Sioux Falls; great grandmother, Adeline Moul, Sioux Falls; 5 sibilings, Dave (Katie), Jeff (Mandy), Mark, Kelsey and Tanner; his very special friend Haley Hillestead; and many aunts, uncles and cousins.
