Rev. & Mrs. Jesse Jackson’s COVID-19 Update
Thursday, September 2, 2021, 1:30pm (ET)
Statement by son, Jonathan Jackson
Chicago, IL -- This is our regular family update with regard to our parents, Rev. Jesse Jackson and Mrs. Jacqueline Jackson. The updates are not medical reports, but have the purpose of generally keeping you informed.
Our mother remains in the Northwestern Memorial Hospital and is continuing her medical care from the COVID-19 virus.  After leaving the ICU and returning to her regular hospital room, for a few days now she has been breathing on her own and without any supplemental oxygen support.
Our father remains at The Shirley Ryan AbilityLab where he is continuing to receive intensive occupational and physical therapy.
Both of our parents are continuing to receive excellent medical care and we thank God for the progress that both seem to be making. We urge that you continue to keep them in your prayers because we know this is a serious disease.
We continue to receive the love that is being poured out to our family from around the world and it is greatly appreciated, as we express our love and concern for the millions of people who have been victimized by the COVID-19 virus and its variants. We remain prayerful for all of those who are suffering as a result.
We urge all who have not yet been vaccinated for the COVID-19 virus to do so immediately.
