We are sad to announce that Jackson Mac Low died this morning at 11:30 a.m. at Cabrini hospital in New York from complications after a stroke he suffered on November 4th. He was 82.
There will be no funeral, but he will be buried at Cedar Park Cemetery in Oradell, NJ.
A memorial will be held in the future.

Barrett Watten is putting together a memorial page which will probably be, or be linked from, here.
It's a sad occasion. Jackson's alertness, energy and good humour had me somehow thinking he'd always be around, always working. I've many memories of him over the years,
in many places. My favourite remark of his, which gives a brief glimpse of his sweep, was when I was staying with him and Anne a couple of weeks after 9/11, the smell of
burnt plastic, metal and bone still in the air and a haze of smoke outside. He was telling me he'd heard one of the planes pass low overhead, wondered what the sound was and
why it seemed familiar. Then he remembered: "it was like the sound the Hindenburg made passing over my home in Chicago when I was a boy." I won't be alone
in missing Jackson.
The New York Times obituary for Jackson is here, but requires free registration.
I've put a PDF file of it here.
A PDF file of The Los Angeles Times obituary is here.
December 16th. I've duplicated this information here so that any remembrances of Jackson can be added, as that doesn't seem
to conflict with what Barrett is doing.
