He was a proud member of the artistic community and could frequently be found displaying his art throughout the city of Atlanta. He will be forever loved by many. His desire for art and belief in God was his drive to succeed. He never stopped believing in himself, even when other cast stones upon him. His health never stopped him from wanting to pursue his dream. He once said “DON’T JUST PRAY 2 TAKE THE PAIN AWAY…. PRAY 2 LET GOD KNOW HOW WONDEROUS HE IS…. HOW AMAZING, HOW BLESSED U R BECAUSE OF HIM. LET HIM KNOW U R ONE OF HIS CHILDREN, & NOTHING CAN TAKE HIS GLORY FROM YOUR SOUL”. Willie considered himself “MORE THAN AN ARTIST”.

Four nephews: Miguel, O’nae Jackson, Tyler Jeter, Jackson Howard. One Niece; Dashia Jackson. A very special friend Tashana Peace, and a host of uncles, aunts and cousins that loved him dearly.
