It is with deep sadness that we share the passing of CAPT Nelson P. Jackson, USN (Ret).
Nelson was the face of I/ITSEC for many years, having been involved with the coordination and development of the conference since 1979. In recent years, as the I/ITSEC Advisor, he remained heavily involved in the planning and execution of the conference. Among his talents was his professional-level tenor voice, which he shared with us by singing the National Anthem during I/ITSEC Opening Ceremonies.
There are no words that can truly capture the hole his passing has left in our hearts. Nelson was a good friend, a patriot, a mentor. He will be greatly missed.
