Obituary

JACKSON C. HALLAERT of Pleasant Lake, Indiana, passed away on December 28, 2021. He is survived by his son, Jack and Amy Hallaert; daughter, Laurie and George Townsend; grandchildren, Ashley (Rocky), Chandler, Michael, Lauryn, Natalie and Riley and great grandchildren, Kyla, Leighton and Carson; brother, Marc and Alana Hallaert; nephew, Marcel and niece, Jenelle (Noah) Miller.

Jackson C. Hallaert was a long-time member of the Robert Bowles Karate Academy, achieving the Black Belt Rank of San Dan (third degree black belt). He loved the martial arts and for many years he was active in competition and assisting with instruction at the academy. He will be missed but not forgotten. May he rest in peace.

Jackson was also a devoted Veteran with 7 years of service in the Seabees, earning the high honor, The Meritorious Certificates given by the Library of Congress and Senator Richard Luger for his participation in the Veterans History Project and in his recognition of supreme dedication to the United States of America. 

Jackson had very cherished and loyal friends who he saw often. We refer to them as The Breakfast Club. He in his younger days spent much time with outdoor sports, hunting and fishing were his favorites. In his golden years he loved fishing with his brother in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and spent his time with his beloved cats adopting and taking care of them. There wasn't an animal he wouldn't take in and feed. 

Jackson suffered for over 30 years with illnesses. He was massively strong as he was kind with a wicked sense of humor. Those who met him knew where they stood.  He was a man of conviction. He will forever be missed especially to all who loved and knew him. May you rest in peace, with Almighty God. We Love You, Dad!

Services will be postponed until June. In lieu of flowers, donations be made to Wounded Warrior Project, The David Lynch Foundation, your favorite military charity, or to the new no kill shelter, Steuben County Humane Society, 780 Shelter Lane, Angola 46703 (260-833-2877).
