    Every Friday morning, Joe and I would chat it up while he setup his BBQ tent. Pre-COVID, we would sit and chat for hours at Starbucks in Bexley. I’m really going to miss his smile and hello…. I thought he was a wonderful person.

  10. No words, just Love.

  11. I trust Joe is lounging on the patio at the Heaven Starbucks having a coffee and chatting with all his friends who passed before him. I know he is happy and at peace. Every time we would chat he spoke most proudly of his children. It is sad that his passing was so untimely and none of us were able to say a proper goodbye. We can still say a quiet goodbye, we love you and miss you !!

  12. Sending love and prayers to the whole family Lovesd Smokin, lots of good memories lots of funny ones too!! Take care Marilyn and Randy

  14. To the family of ” Smokin Joe” Jackson Jr.,
    Joe’s passing will leave a void not only in your family but the Columbus community he served so well for years. I worked with Joe during his time of employment with the state. Joe was always a pleasure to be around. Joe’s love for people and his culinary passion will not soon be forgotten. On behalf of my family, I want to extend my prayers and condolences for today and for the days to come. Rest in power “Smokin Joe”.

    To Joe Jackson’s family, I met and worked with Joe during the time he was employed by the State. Joe was a kind and gregarious soul; he met no strangers. We developed a friendship that continued and existed until his passing. Smokin’ Joe served this city for years and he will be missed. I am praying for the family’s strength through these very difficult times. Peace and blessings to them!

    Sorry to hear of Joe’s passing. I first met Joe while he, the Custer brothers and others were walking to their Job at the Columbus Dispatch Paper Station off of Madison Ave. I believe all those guys were hard working entrepreneurs. He will surely be missed. Thanks Joe for all those great tasting rib tips. Condolences to your family along with Love , strength & peace.

    Joe invited me to the 1966 EHS Football Banquet which also was my 1st high school dance as a freshman (we’re in the 66-67 EHS Yearbook, he in a suit & me in a pink dress). Joe was always a nice person & fun to be around. I pray that his family find comfort in all the wonderful memories they have and I extend my deepest sympathies to them at the transitioning of Joseph Jackson, Jr.

  30. My prayers go out to the Jackson family. My late husband John and I were 1968 classmates with Joe. We had such great memories. RIH Joe
