As previously reported, on July 23, the North American Division (NAD) reported that Daniel Jackson, its former president, passed away from health complications. Dan, as many Adventists called him, led the Seventh-day Adventist denomination in Canada, the U.S., and Bermuda for about 10 years, from the summer of 2010 until he retired on July 1, 2020. Except for five years of service in the Southern Asia Division, Jackson, a Canadian by birth, worked as a pastor, teacher, and administrator in the NAD for his career. He held degrees from Canadian Union College (now Burman University) and Andrews University. Dan, who was born in 1949, is survived by his wife Donna, three children, and four grandchildren.
