  2. Jackson was a great Bahamian; a proud Bahamian. Jackson and I were childhood friends, we had so many things in common- our love for Junkanoo, our appreciation for the arts and not the least of which our appearance. Persons known to both of us have always commented on how much we resemble one another. Today is a very sad day for the country and for myself. I will forever remember this great friend and the great memories we created. We will indeed honour him with the greatest of respect and admiration. May God comfort his wife Pam and the family.

  4. I will surely miss hearing his voice on Junkanoo Talks with Arlene Nash-Ferguson and their count down to Junkanoo.The energy he infused into that talk show was second to none.

  5. Words can’t express how sad I am to hear this. Jackson Burnside was a great Bahamian, he was the type of person who enjoyed impacting lives in a positive and meaningful way. I am happy to know, I had the privileges of sitting in on many of his presentations at various seminars where I were in attendance. He was a true and proud Bahamian to the core and I am sure he will always be missed. My condolences to his family and all those who loved him.
