Mourning the loss of “Mama”

The Levy County Sheriff’s Office
is saddened to announce the loss of our Matron and Cook. Johnnie Mae Jackson
went home to be with her Lord on Saturday January 18, 2014. She went peacefully
while being surrounded by friends and family.

Johnnie Mae “Mama” Jackson 10-25-25 began her career with the Levy County
Board of County Commissioners on June 17, 1969 working
in maintenance and the jail cook for LCSO. She quickly became an icon of the
jail, making sure all staff and inmates alike were well nourished. Everyone enjoyed
“Mama” as she was known throughout our community. Although Mama officially
retired on December 31, 1988 this did not end her tenure with the LCSO. She
continued to volunteer until her declining health forced her to stay home only
a few years ago.

Rest in Peace Mama. You will be
missed.
