Skyler Dean Jackson was born Dec. 16, 1993, in Pierre, SD.
He grew up in Murdo, SD, with his parents, Darrin and Lonna (Cudmore) Jackson. He graduated from Jones County High School of Murdo, SD, in 2012.
Skyler also lived in Spearfish, SD, Belle Fourche, SD, Big Lake, Alaska, and Rozet, WY, at different times prior to residing in Chamberlain, SD. He spent time on a fencing crew, worked as a plumber and was known as a
“jack of all trades.”
He was always willing to lend a helping hand.
Every kid and baby loved Skyler.
He loved writing his own lyrics.
His favorite pastimes were playing socktag and listening to music.
He was often considered the class clown in school and continued to be the biggest goofball, constantly making people laugh. He was well known for multiple impersonations of people and characters. He excelled in football, baseball and basketball throughout his school years. Skyler and his boys or “the tribe” as he called it, were known for keeping Murdo, SD, on its toes.
The young outlaws were a generation all their own.
Skyler loved the open road, windows down and music blasting. Sky was always the man in charge of the music.
Skyler first met Carly in the summer of 2016. “All roads always lead back to each other” and in July of 2019, they were reunited. The two of them became inseparable. They were each other’s soulmates and promised to “love you ’til my lungs give out.”
In the short amount of time he was with his son, he was the best daddy.
He was so proud the day he was born and was so excited. He was already planning all of the fun things they could do together when Roe was older.
Grateful for having shared his life are the love of his life, Carly Iversen of Chamberlain, SD; their newborn son, Roekin James Dean Jackson of Chamberlain, SD; his parents, Darrin and Lonna Jackson of Murdo, SD;
