Obituary For Jackson Perdue
Jeremiah "Jackson" Perdue, 41, of Fremont, California, lived his life in service to his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. He went to his eternal home on August 17, 2022. He succumbed to Oligodendroglioma, a brain cancer that took much of his energy, mind, and body in his last years.
Jackson was born on September 23, 1980 to Jon and Brenda Perdue in Fremont, CA. After graduating from Washington High School in 1998, he went on to study History at California State University in Hayward, California.
His love for God and learning led him to become a youth pastor and substitute teacher soon after graduating from college. He taught continuation high school as his passion for writing, learning, and teaching grew. After attending Golden Gate Seminary where he received a Master’s in Theological Studies, he went on to serve as the Family Pastor at Resonate Church in Fremont.
Jackson met his best friend and future bride, Janelle, in 2003. They married in 2004 and moved to Hacienda Niles shortly after where his family still lives. This has been the longest he lived in one home after experiencing many moves as a child. They welcomed their first daughter, Belle, in October 2006. Juliette joined the family in October 2009. Fiona, whose life symbolizes a step of faith for them, came shortly after in February 2011.
Jackson is survived by his wife Janelle, and their three daughters (Belle, Juliette, and Fiona) his dad Jon, sister Shannon, niece Ashley, nephew Austin, brother Dave, sister-in-law Megan, and nephew Mylo.
Services will be held at Resonate Church, 40650 Encyclopedia Cir., Fremont, CA on Friday, August 26, 2022 at 10:30AM with a reception to follow.
