Brent Caesar Jackson, (aka “Julio” & “Bren T”), 60, was born September 16, 1958 to the late Jeanetta Faye Knauls in Fort Smith, AR. Brent is also preceded in death by two of his sisters, Carlotta (Polly) and Mitzi Knauls.
He received his elementary and second are education from the Fort Smith Public School District. He enjoyed the song “Superstitious” by Stevie Wonder.
Over the years in his life, he developed an awesome skill of cooking, and his specialties were the best pancakes, pizza, barbeque, and German food. He was a cook at Hardscrabble Country Club and Emmy’s German Restaurant. Another one of skills was finding musical knickknacks that played “You are My Sunshine” for his daughter.
For a man who stuttered and could barely get out his words, he enjoyed talking smack, joking around, and making others laugh.
He is survived by his daughter, Ava Whitmore and granddaughter, Kristiana Watts both of Colorado Springs, CO; two step grandchildren, Madicyn and Seth Knott both of Corpus Christi, TX; three siblings, Harvey Knauls of Jacksonville, AR, Ava Bright of San Diego, CA, and Calvin Jackson of Fort Smith, AR and a host of many relatives and friends.
