Obituary of Jerry B. Hackett
Hackett, Jerry Bruce, age 82, of North Mankato, MN, passed away at Immanuel Saint Joseph’s Hospital on Friday, July 26th. He was a loving father, devoted husband, and true friend. Truly a generous person both in his spirit and his actions. He lived a life worth modeling and is loved by many who will miss his smile, sense of humor, strength, and easy-going, happy personality.

Survivors include his daughter, Rachael. Jerry was preceded in death by his mother, Florence Hackett, his father Jerry Hackett, his wife, Rachael Hackett, and his wife Betty Jane Hackett.
