Cynthia Kay Jackson, 58 of Killeen passed away on Friday, September 10,2021.
Cynthia was born on June 28,1963 in Dallas, Texas to LoEtta and William Jackson. She is a graduate of Skyline High School in Dallas, Texas and graduated Magna Cum Laude from Texas Woman's University with a degree in Deaf Education. She spent her career working as a Deaf and Special Education Education Teacher in the Killeen Independent School District and retired after 30 years of service. She led a beginning sign language class to the community as she believed sign language was not just for the teachers and parents of hearing impaired/deaf students. She will be dearly missed by those who knew her and her bubbly personality. “If ever there is a tomorrow when we’re not together, there is something you must remember…” “ You are braver than you believe, stronger than you feel, and smarter than you think. But the most important thing is, even if we are apart, I’ll always be with you.” Winnie the Pooh
“Let my teaching drop as the rain, My speech distill as the dew, As the droplets on the fresh grass
And as the showers on the herb.” Deuteronomy 32:2
