ATLANTA (May 30, 2013) – Glen Jackson, co-founder and partner at Jackson Spalding, will deliver a poignant address to the Buckhead Rotary Club on June 3rd, 2013, reflecting on his relationship with his father, a former POW in WWII and D-Day tank driver.
As a way to help cope with the loss of his father in 1983 when Glen was 19 years old, Glen has spent the past four years researching his father’s war experience and the impact that this emotional and physical trauma had on his family. These revelations have inspired Glen to undertake a writing project that is both a war story and a healing story.
“My father was a special man who took part in a battle that literally helped save the world,” said Jackson. “He was part of the greatest generation and is missed by me every day. I am looking forward to providing a Father’s Day message for Buckhead Rotary as well as talking about D-Day. June 6th marks the 69th anniversary of this pivotal battle.”
Glen is a longstanding member of the Rotary Club of Atlanta, joining the civic organization in 1994 and now serving on its board of directors. In 2007, he chaired the interfaith prayer breakfast Atlanta Rotary implements annually. To honor the Rotary Club of Atlanta and its spirit of volunteerism, Glen volunteered to chair the committee for Atlanta Rotary’s 100th anniversary celebration in 2013. The black-tie gala event celebrating Atlanta Rotary’s 100th milestone takes place on June 18.
