Six Year Anniversary March 17,2017

May the loving memory of Aunt Donna be with us forever. When visiting Aunt Donna's Memorial we would greatly appreciate a written tribute and/or a memorable story. You may also leave a flower or note .
  • 52 years old
  • Born on February 2, 1959 in Houston, Texas, United States.
  • Passed away on March 17, 2011 in Brookshire, Texas, United States.

    This Memorial Website was created in the memory of our loved one, Ms.Donna Blair Jackson who was born on February 2, 1959.

   Shockingly,Aunt Donna was  murdered (strangled to death ) by her newly vicious so- called husband in her own newly built  country styled home  on March 18, 2011, in Brookshire, Texas .

    In spite of the fact that she had served diligently in  The Persian Gulf War, in addition to her other duties as a Corporal of The United States Army for over 15 years,Aunt Donna was ultimately rendered disabled by The United States Army, with Honorable Discharge.

    Sadly enough at the time of her death Aunt Donna was not only  suffering from her injuries from her services in the  military , she had  just  recently spent some time in the hospital from a horrific car wreck in which her car was totaled , Sadly enough at the time of her death she was still receiving physical therapy and treatments for other underlying medical conditions. My husband and I will never  forget the wonderful time we spent with you during your doctor's appointment at  The West Houston Medical Center in January,2011. 

   We will remember her forever.She leaves to mourn three childen ,two daughters and one son  ages 22-30. 

                             Aunt Donna was Laid To Rest in:

Houston National Cemetery

10410 Veterans Memorial Drive
Houston, TX,

On March 30,2011




         Thanking You For all of Your Great Service to Our Country !

       A Salute From The Rogers Family

"Thinking of you sis everytime i look at my son Trevor's face, he reminds me of you. I miss your crazy laugh or when your telling me about what you bought for a good deal. Or little things i stumble across I think of you." You will be truly missed, but NEVER forgotten.. Until then

Just sitting here and wanted to say hi. I miss you my friend.

Hey girlfriend, I know it's been months since I last checked in with you, but I have retired since our last conversation. I always though that we would reach this mile stone together, how often had we talked about the trips we would take and the benches we would sit on and talk about people. These things bring a smile to my face when I think of you. I will hold these memories dear as I sit with you on that bench without you. Love Ya

If I had words... Missing you more today than last..
It has been 6 years since you were so briskly taken away from us...

My tears never subsided only hidden from others

Hi My sister I was sitting thinking about you and a smile spread across my face. So I had to come and talk to you. You know that you could be so funny at times, and how I miss those times. I had to let you know. I miss you and loved our friendship very much.

Words can't express how much you are missed. I've never known a more beautiful woman, inside and out. Johnathan is a daddy now!! You'd be so proud of the father he is and you'd def love Johnathan Jr. he's the spitting image of him! Rest in love Ms.Donna, I'll never forget you.

I still can't believe that you are not here with us! The kids have gotten so big! Jermaine is still fat, I'm taking good care of him. I miss you! More than words can show! I miss our prayer times, our wine and cheese times! You would always have it waiting for me when I came over. I learned a lot from you and pretty sure there was more for me to learn! I hate that you are not here to see all the great things happening around us! You welcomed me so openly into this family and I'm forever grateful! I love you so much and miss you more! Keep watching over us! Liz, Jermaine, Kirion, Jermaine Jr, Lyric and a little one we sneaked in..Elijah!

Hello Dykeba, you do not have to thank me for this.  I loved Donna as my sister and I will always remember her and post here as long as you have this site. I miss her dearly. She was a great friend. I was there when Brandon was born and I watched as Sha and Randy grew up.  Kirk was a pain in our behinds but we loved him the same :). Couldn't get rid of him.  She and I had fun together. I am sorry that I did get to meet the rest of the family.

I just seen this and I wanted to come back and post this....
  Many we loved have passed away too soon.....Without reason.

   We remember them often in a thousand different ways...In the
    morning....In the night...When we look at star...A date ....A smile...
    A smell....A place...A song.. just keep them close in our hearts and
    they will live forever, when they bring that smile to our face.

   In memory of those who have left us too soon. WE LOVE YA

Three Years has past since your smile was silenced , your joy for life ended and your compassion ceased . Oh how I wish you were still among us . The memories of you being a great aunt are still fresh in my mind . The funny moments we shared, the exciting stories you would tell of your world travel, and the many events that impacted your daily life as a military mom. You will never know how much those very memories live strong in my thoughts and in my heart. Your sweet spirit will never be forgotten , your love for family never erased and the way you made us all proud by serving your country.....priceless . My family and I shall never forget you Aunt Donna ,,, Three years and you fond memories still near to my heart . Missing you always , your niece , Mrs. Dykeba Lecole Rogers and The Entire Rogers Family

To a Wonderful Aunt , on her 55th Birthday !!

Oh how I wish you here with me,
To share this wonderful birthday
A joyous occasion you see.
To share in a very special way.

God was so merciful he gave you life
and let us borrow you for a short time ,
but when your season was finished.
God reached down and picked you from the garden vine

Many Blessing you left behind
A laugh a grin or two,
So much joy you would bring us
Thank God for letting us borrow you.

The tears still fall down my face ,
as tiny reminders we see,
Of the the great times we had when I was growing up
You were that special Aunt to me.

So rest my dear Aunt rest on ,
No sadness regrets or frowns ,
Just knowing one day we will see you again,
The day we come and get our own heavenly crown.

An Original Poem By Your Niece ,

What a Veterans' Day to remember all of the great soldiers who have served our country . What a selfish act to lay down their lives for their great country.What a selfish act to blaze before gunfire for strangers that you will never meet. What a brave act to not only fight without ceasing, but be dedicated the the warmth and safety of our Great Country The United States of America !

Another year that we must embrace the pain and burn it as fuel for our journey. While we are mourning the loss of our friend, others are rejoicing to meet her behind the veil. Love becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure.
Posted by Rebekah Rogers on March 18, 2013
"It has been 2 years since you're passing but, it has not yet sunk in that you are not here. When I think of you I always see your wonderful smile. Though you are not here I always know you are here with us in spirit, lifting us up through hard times. I know you are enjoying GOD'S beautiful wonderland that is HEAVEN. We will love you forever and always. R.I.P. Aunt Donna." Rebekah R.
