Jackson Ray Viss was born April 5, 1959 in Willmar, Minnesota, to Paul and Carolyn (Negen) Viss.  In 1961, his family moved to Hancock, Minnesota.  Jackson professed his faith in Jesus at Hancock Christian Reformed Church.  He graduated from Hanock High School in 1977 and worked at Rainbow Rafter and Hancock Concrete.  He moved to Steamboat Springs, Colorado, where he worked maintenance at the ski resort.  He later moved back to Minnesota, and lived in Cold Spring, at Birchwood in Sauk Rapids for 13 years, and most recently in St. Cloud.

Jackson was a member of Hancock Christian Reformed Church.  He was well read in the Bible and could recite many verses by heart.  He enjoyed riding motorcycle, snow skiing, music, planting marigolds, and having milkshakes.   He also loved to travel, especially his trip to Colorado and Corpus Christi, Texas.

Jackson is survived by four brothers: Barton and Julie of Sioux Falls, SD, Joel and Margaret of Chatfield, MN, Todd and Kim of Merced, CA, and Eric and UnSuk of Susanville, CA; a sister-in-law: Bonita of Talmoon, MN; several nieces and nephews; and his friends at Birchwood in Sauk Rapids.
