Hundreds Turn Out For Spence Jackson’s Funeral
SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) — Former Missouri auditor's spokesman Spence Jackson is being remembered at his funeral as a gregarious guy who was passionate about politics. Jackson's funeral was held yesterday in his hometown of Springfield, two weeks after he fatally shot himself in what police describe as a suicide. Jackson's death came a month after his boss, Auditor Tom Schweich, also fatally shot himself. Among the 150 in attendance was former Governor Matt Blunt, for whom Jackson once worked.
