It is with deep sorrow and great regret that we announce the passing of James Jackson of the San Francisco Chapter of Urban Financial Services Coalition on Tuesday, February 28, 2012.  James has been a member of the organization for over 20 years.  During his time with the organization he has served in numerous leadership positions, to include President and Vice President of the local San Francisco Chapter and as the Western Region Vice-President and Regional Representative.  He has been part of many important projects, such as the establishment of the Puget Sound Chapter of Urban Financial Services Coalition and working with the International Oratorical Competition. 

Family members, friends and UFSC member’s gathered on Friday, March 9, 2012, at Philips Temple CME Church, in Berkeley, California to celebrate his life and pay their respects. 

In memory of James Jackson’s hard work, commitment and dedication to the development of minority professionals in the financial services industry and the empowerment of minority communities, a scholarship will be given in his name at the Urban Financial Services Coalition International Collegiate Oratorical Competition.  The first scholarship will be awarded on June 29, 2012, at the Urban Financial Services Coalition International Summit in Charlotte, North Carolina. 

We have lost a tireless public servant who embodied humanity, compassion and dignity for all. It has been our honor and privilege to have worked with him. James brought a wealth of knowledge of UFSC and of the issues in which we are engaged. UFSC will carry on his passion for ensuring the equitable participation of the minorities at all levels in the financial services industry.  To share reflections, please post to our Facebook page – Urban Financial Services Coalition (Formerly Urban Bankers).
