Hazel Irene Jackson, age 72, of Jackson, CA, passed away Saturday September 28, 2019 at Mark Twain Medical Center in San Andreas, CA. Hazel was born in Montana on April 2, 1947, a daughter of Florence Marie (Pace) and the late Gene Malcolm Allen.
Hazel graduated from high school in Drummond, Montana in 1965 and received a business school degree from Deer Lodge Montana in 1966. Shortly after school she chose to start a new career and personal life in Northern California where she married a forester named Pat Jackson. Hazel was the executive director for the California Licensed Forester Association for many years which allowed her to make many forestry friends and gave her the opportunity to travel to Washington D.C. on their behalf. Hazel was renowned for her loyalty and her great administrative skills both of which served to make California Licensed Forester Association a force in the natural resource field during her tenure.
Hazel is survived by her mother Florence Allen; brothers, Ed Allen and Roy Allen (Cathy), several nieces and nephews all of Billings, MT; her forestry family with California License Forestry Association; Charlene Davis and the Hilton staff at Arden West; and her long-time friend Jose Cena.
