Michael Ray Jackson

Special Deputy Jackson was struck and killed by a vehicle while assisting at the scene of a motor vehicle accident on I-40 in Wake County. After the accident scene was cleared Deputy Jackson began picking up warning markers which had been placed in front of an ambulance. As he picked them up a tractor trailer that was parked on the shoulder began to roll. The tractor trailer struck the ambulance and both vehicles ran over Deputy Jackson.

Deputy Jackson was posthumously awarded the North Carolina Award for Bravery and Heroism. He is survived by his wife.

It's hard to believe it's been 17 years. I think of Michael a lot - we grew up together. If I close my eyes and listen, I can still hear his voice and his laugh that always made me smile.
Rest in peace sweet friend.
