The Shawn Jackson Funeral Home is a tremendous asset for the city of St. Thomas and a real credit to the profession. Shawn, himself, is a kind, calm, considerate and caring professional whose advice and concern during a trying and difficult time was greatly appreciated. His staff provided excellent and efficient assistance throughout the visitation and the service. No details were overlooked. Visitors were graciously greeted and directed; casket, flowers and equipment were carefully transferred to the Hall; traffic was directed and cars parked; cemetery arrangements were flawlessly carried out with respect. The funeral home itself is a modern, bright, spotless and welcoming facility. It is fully accessible - an important consideration when many loved ones are seniors with limited mobility. The visitation room proved most commodious; an adjacent room provided excellent and comfortable opportunity for often prolonged reminiscing and reconnecting by many relatives and acquaintances. Little details were not overlooked as coffee, water, juice and cookies were continuously available while the hot, home-baked pie provided “a real nice touch”. My mom, the extended family, the many visitors and the minister all were most impressed. I highly commend and would certainly recommend Shawn Jackson to anyone.
- Jeff Tolman on behalf of the Lloyd Tolman family
Hi Shawn, I want to extend my sincere and heart felt gratitude to you and your staff.

You accommodated our faith without hesitation. I truly believe you are in a very difficult profession, but among your peers I believe you stand head and shoulders above the rest. Again thank you very much and god bless.

Some very classy points which we noted are the pie you gave us in between the visitation, the man you had stand over the grave site as the family left (mom made note that this was especially nice - like he was watching over her in our absence), and your general attitude of quiet understanding. May God bless you and your business.
- Sarah Van Pelt
I wanted to take a moment to say 'thank you' for helping me and my family through such a difficult time. Losing a loved one is never easy, and the stress of a funeral is unbearable. Although my mother pre-planned her funeral and took the burden of some of these decisions off of us, there are some decisions that can't be made by the deceased. This is where you, Myra and the rest of your staff, provided invaluable expertise and assistance to our family. Your willingness to be available day and night to answer any and all questions, your flexibility in service arrangements, and your limitless patience with my grieving family was recognized and appreciated more than you will ever know. Unfortunately, growing older comes with grown up responsibilities and this is one of them. My mother will never know how much pre-planning her funeral took the stresses of making decisions for her, off us. It is a gift that one would never appreciate until it is too late. Although this must have been hard for her, I am confident that you provided her the same level of service, respect, and compassion that you've shown us. So, I am saying 'thank you' from my entire family, including my mother.
- Tammy (Caldwell) Ritchie

- Orland Hartford
My mother died in January, 2012. It was expected, but still shocking when it happened. Shawn Jackson immediately took over everything for my family.
My mother had pre-planned her funeral with Shawn Jackson Funeral Home and when we went in to see Shawn he covered every detail with quiet dignity and efficiency. Many books of samples were available to us to pick out cards and thank you notes, etc. At the visitation, there were many great grandchildren present and a room was provided for them for colouring, watching a movie, eating snacks, etc. About two months after the funeral I received in the mail a card from Shawn Jackson asking how I was doing and asking if there was anything he could do to help.
I was truly impressed and will never forget the kindness shown, the service provided and the dignified way in which I was treated. My funeral will certainly be held from Shawn Jackson Funeral Home.
