Douglas was born on August 17, 1980, in Fort Worth, TX. He was a member of the Stephenville High School class of 1999. On April 9, 2005, Douglas married Clarissa Lynn Moses in Morgan Mill. To that union was born Amber Leigh, Dryston McKinley, and Ethan Kane Jackson. Douglas served his country in the U. S. Coast Guard. He was a member of the Harmony Masonic Lodge #592 in Morgan Mill, and Morgan Mill Baptist Church. He loved the game of golf. Douglas worked as an installer with Dish Network, and was a lifelong resident of Erath County.
Douglas loved his family, and believed that family was the most important thing in the world. Everyone in the family knew that on their birthday he was going to be the very first phone call they got. Douglas met and married his wife Clarissa in 2005. During their life together they have raised three children who have been the center of their world. He loved doing all sports, but especially loved playing the game of golf. He shared his love for golf with his wife and children as he taught them to play the game. Douglas had the honor of becoming a Mason, and held this honor with pride understanding what it truly meant to be a mason. Douglas never met a stranger, and was always willing to help anyone in need. He lived his life to the fullest, never afraid of anything. Douglas’s faith in God was so strong that there is no doubt that he is in heaven watching over everyone, continuing to be the great protector that he was.
Douglas was preceded in death by his grandfather, Eddie Chauncy, who we are certain he is playing golf with in heaven as we speak.
Douglas is survived by his wife, Clarissa; children, Amber, Dryston, and Ethan; parents, Kenneth and Jana Jackson; brothers, Rob and wife Ramsey Jackson, Jud and wife Reagan Jackson, and Cooper and wife Brittany Chauncy; sisters, Amy Jackson and Cheri and husband Ben Shuffain; nieces and nephews Kellan, Landrey, Kade, Kolter, Brady, Cambree, Dylan, and Kennedy; grandparents Carol Ann Chauncy Baker and W. B. Baker; and uncle, Mark Chauncy; and cousin, Connor. He is also survived by a multitude of aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends who he always believed were family not just friends.
