FRANKLIN - Jennifer “Jinger” Sanders-Jackson, 68, of Franklin, went home to be with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on Tuesday, Oct. 9, 2018.

Born in Macon County, she was the daughter of the late Bob and Jodie Waldroop Sanders. Jinger was retired from Macon County Schools, where she taught second grade for many years. She was a member of First Baptist Church of Franklin. Jinger also created and ran “Rebecca’s Resolve Research Ministry for Christ” for several years. In doing this endeavor, she reached many people and exemplified God’s love for them through her loving example. Her favorite quote was, “Love never fails.” Jinger also loved animals, especially her late dog Pretzel and her dog, Chloe.

She is survived by her husband of 20 years, Scott Jackson; her daughter, Brooke Bell Waldroop and husband Christopher; a brother, Joe Sanders and his wife Dana; three grandsons, Maddox, Maveric and Mace Waldroop, all of Franklin; a niece, Lauren Ashford of Raleigh; a nephew, Preston Sanders, of Saint Augustine, Florida; and a “sisterly” first cousin, Betty Ellis, of Saint Simons, Georgia.

Jinger is also survived by special lifelong friends, Tricia Bowling, Nancy Jane Shope and Debbie Lamb.

A memorial service will be held at 4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 13 in the chapel of Macon Funeral Home. The Revs. Janet Greene, Kelly Dotson and Theresa Talley will officiate. Burial will be at Woodlawn Cemetery.

The family will receive friends one hour prior to the service at Macon Funeral Home.
