GOP mourns death of longtime treasurer

Homer Jackson, an accountant who was the treasurer for the Alabama Republican Party for 44 years, died Sunday, according to a release from the party. He was elected treasurer of the party in 1965 and became the longest serving elected party leader in the history of the state party.
The longtime party activist, who was 84, was chairman of the Alabama Young Republicans, president of the Southern Council of Young Republicans, elected to the Jefferson County Executive Committee in 1954, and was elected to his 23rd term as treasurer in February.
"Homer Jackson was such an incredible man and will be greatly missed, our thoughts and prayers go out to his family during this time," said state Rep. Mike Hubbard of Auburn, who is chairman of the Alabama Republican Party. "Mr. Jackson was passionate about the Republican Party, and he backed it up through his unbridled enthusiasm and his dedicated, not to mention unpaid, service."
Visitation will be at 11 a.m. Wednesday at Canterbury United Methodist Church in Mountain Brook followed by a memorial service at noon.
