Obituary for Jackson E. Cardin

On Tuesday, January 8th, Jackson Eugene Cardin, devoted father, grandfather, and uncle, passed away at the age of 85.
“Jack” was born on June 3rd, 1933 in Barnesville, Georgia the son of R. L. Cardin and Mary Robinson Cardin, and brother of Charles Edward Cardin. He served in the U.S. Army during the Korean War, and later attended the University of Georgia, earning his Bachelor of Business Administration in 1958, and MBA in 1959. He entered the university on football scholarship under legendary Bulldogs Coach Wally Butts, but gave up football for academic pursuits, working his way through college tutoring his fellow teammates. He remained a lifelong and devoted supporter of his beloved Bulldogs.
Jack had a successful and dynamic career in business. He was a member of National Futures Association, New Orleans Board of Trade, Leadership Atlanta Alumni and New Orleans Executive Club.
His athletic nature appeared throughout his lifetime in his passion for football, tennis, golf, skiing, swimming, and running. But the true and underlying nature of these activities for him was time spent with family, which he cherished.
Jack is survived by daughter Jody (Tim) Kelly; sons Richard (Donna) Cardin, Michael (Susan) Cardin, and John Cardin; sister-in-law Jean Cardin, niece Leslie J. Cardin; and grandchildren Benjamin (Jessica) Cardin, Nicholas Cardin, Sean Kelly, Ryan Kelly, Ashlyn Kelly, Zachary Cardin, and Harris Cardin.
