Allen Edward “TC” Jackson of Scottsbluff, NE, passed away on Friday, July 24, 2020, at Regional West Medical Center in Scottsbluff.

A graduate of Scottsbluff High School and what is now Western Nebraska Community College, he transferred to Murray State University in Murray, Ky, where he graduated in 1971 with a BSE. He took a break from education to work as a carpenter with his Dad and spent several years in the Peace Corps before he continued with his education.

Allen received a Master’s Degree of Education from Northcentral University, did graduate work in kinesiology at the University of Wyoming, and received an MSE from Chadron State College in May 2003.

He taught in the public-school system in the Minatare School District from 1999-2004. He began his college teaching career at Chadron State College in 2004 and continued until 2011. He was the happiest and so proud of the years working with the United States Sports Academy and teaching in Malaysia and Bangkok from 2012-2014.

Allen was recognized in the Global Register 2003-2007 of Who’s Who Among America’s Teachers, but the love he had for teaching could never compare to his love of fishing.

Allen was preceded in death by his parents, Charles E. and Helen (Hartwig) Jackson, and his brother Murphy

He is survived by one son, J. Scott Weitlauf; grandson, Keegan Weitlauf; great-grandson, Kieran Weitlauf all of Louisville, Kentucky; ex-wife, Belinda Weitlauf of Gilbertsville, Kentucky; three very special friends, Dr. Laura Gaudet, and Lyn Schoening and daughter, Bryn; brother, Richard (Peggy) Jackson of Scottsbluff; niece, Brook Jackson; nephews, Bradley Dean Jackson, Grant Jackson, Clark (Erica) Jackson, and Garrett (Caitlyn) Jackson; and additional great-nieces and great-nephews.

Allen was a good friend and would give you the shirt off his back, but above all else he loved to fish and, in a few days, his earthly self will be with the fishes (Lake Minatare, NE).
