The changes in jobs took Scott and family from Tulsa to Jacksonville, Fla., to Mantua, N.J., (near Philadelphia) and back to Oklahoma, where the family settled for good in Norman.
Trans-Tel Inc., developed and started by Jack and Jane Morgan (Scott and Leah’s sister and brother-in-law), has been Scott’s love for 21 years. Scott and Jack, along with family members and the incredible employees, enjoyed a relationship of trust and mutual respect and have continued that relationship to this day.
Scott and Leah met in Tulsa in 1975 on a blind date. They fell in love, and after a short engagement, they married on Jan. 31, 1976, in Okmulgee, Leah’s hometown. They had many adventures together and raised two incredible children, Jennifer Ellen (Hill) Jackson and Scott Jackson Jr.
Scott loved to spoil and surprise Leah throughout their 38 years of marriage. Scott and Leah had such a loving marriage that it served as an excellent role model for their kids and grandkids. Scott was such a great influence to his family and taught them many life lessons. To his children, Scott was seen as a man of great integrity and a role model of what a man should be. He provided a safe and secure home full of love and great times for his family.
Scott enjoyed playing golf his entire life and was fortunate to have made three holes in one. He loved to caddy for his son during his golf tournaments. Scott also enjoyed traveling, road trips, cruises and listening to oldies music.
He would light up a room with his big smile and always made people feel comfortable. He was a loyal patron of Charleston’s Restaurant. Scott loved to sit on the back porch and smoke a cigar and watch the fish and birds. Family was very important to Scott, and he loved spending time with his kids and grandkids. He will be remembered by family as thoughtful, generous, giving, a comforter to many and never being judgmental of people.
