Rick is survived by his loving wife, high school sweetheart and soulmate of 49 years, Mary Ann (Delmont) Jackson; his sons Jamie (Stephanie) Jackson and Kevin Jackson; his grandchildren Holden Jackson, James Pritchard and Grace Yerian; his sister Cheryl Stewart and many nieces and nephews. Rick leaves behind him a legacy of helping and caring for others as well as his insatiable work ethic.

RIP Rick. You will truly be missed. Thank you for all the beautiful remodeling you did for me. 🙏
Rick is my brother-in-law but he is also the big-brother that I never had. He is godfather to two of my boys and also a good friend. Rick came into our family when I was so young that I barely remember a time that he wasn’t there. A thousand childhood memories and a thousand more as an adult. Good times, bad times, fun times and sad times. Rick is the best husband and father to my sister and nephews. Fact.. Over all these years I honestly cannot remember hearing Rick raise his voice once in anger to anyone.
My sweet Maryann, Jamie & Kevin, let me offer this; All is well. Nothing is hurt. Nothing is lost. One brief moment and all will be as it was before. How we shall laugh at the trouble of parting when we meet again.
I am so sorry to hear of Rick’s passing. I worked with Rick at Wayne Savings Rittman branch. He was truly one of the good guys. Will be keeping you all in my prayers.
Our friend and best helper in the world is now enjoying his heavenly reward. He was beyond kind and helpful. He was the best that humanity
offered us, his customers and friends.
I miss him terribly.
Rest in God’s Arms Rick

Maryann, Jamie, Kevin, Family-
I’m very sorry for your loss. I’ll have fond memories of Rick from when I was younger. A good man and a good family. God Bless all of you.
I had the privilege of working with Rick at the bank for four years while home from college during the summers. Rick was a great boss, mentor, and friend. I will always be grateful for the time I spent working with him and always remember the jokes he shared while we drank our morning coffee. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this time and I hope you find comfort in the memories you have shared together as well as the legacy he left behind.
I was saddened to hear of Rick’s passing. I enjoyed when he stopped at our Wayne Savings branch in North Canton. We always had good conversations. He always tried to get our branch what we needed to be more productive and enjoyable for us. Companies need more employees like Rick. Glad he passed through my life.
I am so sorry to hear of Rick’s passing. I worked with Rick and was his supervisor for a few years. He was always a joy to work with and had a very positive attitude. He made work fun and he always talked about his family and how he loved and enjoyed them. I am sure he will be missed but has left so much behind. I was blessed to have known him.
Mary Ann and family,
I am so sorry for your loss.
So very sorry to hear about the death of Rick, my thoughts and prayers go out to his wife and entire family. I worked at Wayne Savings with Rick as well as had him do some handy man work at my home. He was a good man and adored his wife and children! He will certainly be missed!
