Skyler Dean Jackson was born in Pierre, SD, on December 16, 1993. He grew up in Murdo, SD, with his parents Darrin and Lonna (Cudmore) Jackson. He graduated from Jones County High school in 2012. Skyler also lived in Spearfish, Belle Fourche, Big Lake, AK, and Rozet, WY, at different times prior to residing in Chamberlain. He spent time on a fencing crew, worked as a plumber and was known as a “jack of all trades.” He was always willing to lend a helping hand. Every kid and baby loved Skyler. He loved writing his own lyrics. His favorite pastimes were playing socktag and listening to music.

He was often considered the class clown in school and continued to be the biggest goofball, constantly making people laugh. He was well known for multiple impersonations of people and characters. He excelled in football, baseball and basketball throughout his school years. Skyler and his boys, or “the tribe” as he called it, were known for keeping Murdo on its toes. The young outlaws were a generation all their own.

Skyler loved the open road, windows down and music blasting. Sky was always the man in charge of the music.

Skyler first met Carly in the summer of 2016. “All roads always lead back to each other” and in July 2019 they were reunited. The two of them became inseparable. They were each other’s soul mates and promised to “love you til my lungs give out.”

In the short amount of time he was with his son, he was the best daddy. He was so proud the day he was born and was so excited. He was already planning all of the fun things they could do together when Roe was older.

Skyler is survived by the love of his life Carly Iversen and their newborn son, Roekin James Dean Jackson of Chamberlain; his parents Darrin and Lonna Jackson; his sister Breanna “Breezy” Jackson; and his sister Lindsey (Fairbairn) Bomesberger and nephew Ryker Bomesberger. He is also survived by his grandparents: Rod and Darlene Cudmore, Bob Jackson, Lyn Hullinger and great grandmother Anna Marie Hullinger, aunts: Kara, Sarah, Heidi, Karen, Gena, Calista, Sheri, Soledad and Tanya, and uncles: Clay, Cody, Percy, Grant, Doug, Barry, Dave, Rod and Ken, along with many other family members.

He was preceded in death by his Grandma Ada Jackson and Grandpa and Grandma John (Gene) and Sonya Fairbairn; special uncle Don Hullinger; uncle Rich Vavra; and cousin Brit Boyd.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that memorials be directed to the Roekin Jackson College Fund at First Interstate Bank, P.O. Box 2160, Belle Fourche, SD 57717.
