Andrew Jackson

April 22, 1966 — March 13, 2024

Andrew Jackson (not named after the president) passed away on March 13, 2024, from liver and kidney failure. He was surrounded by people who loved him when he passed. 

 

Andrew was born on April 22, 1966, in Loughborough, Leicestershire, in the East Midlands of England. Growing up Andrew was naturally inquisitive and always loved nature. He traveled with his family in the Leicestershire Center Caravan Club (camping for us Americans) on most weekends. He moved with his family to Canada in 1975 living in Montreal, Quebec for a couple of years and then settling in Kingston, Ontario in 1978. 

 

Andrew was a lover of all animals and, like his mother, had a special place for cats. Andrew loved the bass guitar and all guitars as far as all of us knew so well. Andrew and his brother Steven formed a band that was called “Ages of You”. Andrew was a good singer and sang with his brother in the band. They were very successful on the local circuit and throughout Ontario. They were invited to showcase the inaugural release of the New Record label Velvet Records in 1991 at The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Toronto. This experience proved to be the last gig the band performed together. 

 

Andrew went to nursing school in Canada and then moved to Texas and worked for a few years. Andrew did move back to Kingston for a while and earned his Nurse Practitioner. In 1995, he worked for Children’s Aid Society and looked after his mother, Jean, while she battled brain cancer. After she passed away, he moved back to the United States eventually settling in Utah. In Utah he worked at Davis Hospital starting in 2004. He became a part of the ER family there where we all learned to love sitting and listening to all of Andrew’s incredible knowledge. 

 

He knew so much about so much. He would school us on trains, Blu-rays, sound systems, guitars, cats, and all other topics you can imagine. He was a kind and intelligent nurse. His patients loved him. Andrew loved his cats. They gave him so much joy. He worked at Davis Hospital for 18 years, leaving last September. Andrew was an avid collector of all things Star Wars, Star Trek, cooking equipment, and models of all sorts.  

 

Anyone who knew Andrew very well knew he loved Amazon.   He could have anything he had researched shipped in two days.  In 2019, he bought his prized Corvette in a hot red. He loved that car and knew everything there was to know about it.  His other favorite topic in the end was Dead Pool. He had a full leather costume including a mask. 

 

Andrew was a gentle man who would never offend or hurt anyone. He worked so hard at his job. He loved being a nurse and was sad to leave his job when he did. 

 

Andrew is survived by his brothers, Paul (Jodi) Jackson and Steven (Monica) Jackson; his nephew, William (Elizabeth) Jackson, and their son Aiden. He was preceded in death by his mother and father, Raymond and Jean Jackson.

 

Andrew will be interred at Glenhaven Memorial Gardens in Glenburnie, Ontario near his Mum and Dad. 

There will be a Memorial in Utah at a later date. 

 

Special thanks to the Emergency Room, ICU, Telemetry and Social work staff, and Dr. Adepu and Dr. Simmons at Holy Cross Davis for the exceptional care they took of Andrew. Thank you to CNS Hospice for being so kind for the last two weeks of Andrew’s life. We are grateful to all his Emergency Room family for their support during his last days. He loved every visit.
