University of Texas - Austin
Deceased January 5, 2012
Reported by Dave Stones, Georgetown University:
The Austin American Statesman carried an obituary for Rex Jackson on January 6, 2012.
Rex had been Assistant Director of Admissions at the University of Texas at Austin 1947-57, then worked at the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board 1957-1963, and
then returned to the University of Texas at Austin 1963-1980 as Associate Director of Admissions. He is survived by his wife of 67 years.
Rex was TACRAO President when TACRAO met in Austin in 1972. I had the
pleasure of working with him his last several years at UT before he
retired to Marble Falls. He was a class act.
