Jonathan Jackson, the son of Reverend Jesse and Jacqueline Jackson, Wednesday thanked everyone for their prayers as his parents continue to recover from COVID-19.
In an interview with the Chicago Crusader, Jonathan Jackson said, “I want to extend a tremendous amount of appreciation and heartfelt gratitude for all of our family, friends and supporters who have extended prayers on behalf of my parents, Reverend and Mrs. Jesse Jackson.
“I am proud to report that they are gaining in strength and are on their way to recovery,” he said.
“We keep the family members of all of those who have been afflicted and infected by this horrific disease in our prayers,” Jonathan Jackson said.
“My mother says this disease can be eradicated. Please follow the sciences. Please get vaccinated,” he said.
It is so important that out of this crisis we turn to each other and not on each other. Please check on a friend. Check on a family member. Check on a neighbor. Keep hope alive.
