Diane, saddened to hear of the loss of Dr. Jackson. His skill as a surgeon saved my son his hearing, for which we will be forever grateful. He cared for us well as parents throughout the surgery process. What a wonderful, kind gentleman. Our sincere condolences, Kathy and Don Bull

I always referred to Dr. Jackson as "angel hands". After many surgeries in my home state, I hopelessly contacted The Otology group in Nashville for one last chance, and Dr. Jackson helped me hear again. I'm a singer so it meant the world to me, and I never had the chance to thank him in person which makes me sad. Rest in peace.I was his patient only one time, but it was fate that led me to him, and now I have the gift of writing songs.

Like many of the people here who have extended their condolences, Gary's legacy of teaching was exponential. I owe what I am professionally and in many many ways personally to this man. There is nothing I can say to adequately sum up what that means to me, my patients, and my own family every single day. I will miss him dearly until we cross paths again. Thank you Jackson family for your sacrifices and sharing him with us. The fruits of his labor and yours continue to impact lives every single day.

I'm so sorry to hear this. Thank you so much for stopping by the barber shop and letting me know. I can't tell you how much I have enjoyed barbering for Dr. Jackson. He and I had many laughs. He always spoke very highly of his family. You all meant a great deal to him. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Jeff Richard

I was so sad to hear of Dr. Jackson's passing. I had the honor and privilege of working as his assistant in helping transition the fellowship to an ACGME-accredited fellowship. He was a brilliant man with a sometimes intimidating persona but a teddy bear heart. I was happy to have been able to maintain communication with him after his retirement and hear the wonderful stories of teaching his grandchildren to fish... something he could not wait to do...and to still

Brilliant man, accomplished surgeon, proud grandfather. I worked with Dr. Jackson in Nashville and everyday was a learning experience. Much to young to leave this world. RIP.

I hear Dr. Jackson's advise on most days in the OR, but especially when there is something unexpected or stressful. He helps me all the time! I only spent one year at The Otology Group for my neuro-otology fellowship, but I had my second child while I was there. Mrs. Jackson and Dr. Jackson were very kind to me and my little family. My daughter still has the pink bunny Diane brought to our apartment in Nashville when I was

I was very saddened to hear of Gary's passing. We grew up during the same era in the early years of surgery of the ear and skull base. We shared experiences and discussed patients frequently at national meetings. We also were active in our medical societies during his years of practice. More importantly we shared fishing trips with the ossicular hooker group fishing in Mexico and trout streams in the West. We will all miss him.
