Des Moines

Michelle Elaine Jackson was born April 10, 1991, to Gary and Judith (Childress) Jackson in Des Moines, Iowa. She was an avid competitive swimmer for East High School, from where she graduated, and for Des Moines Swim Team. Her family was her top priority and she was an outstanding mom. Being a mom was one of her greatest joys. Michelle was very active. She enjoyed going for walks with her family, going out to dinner, and she loved super hero movies. When she smiled her whole body would smile and her eyes would light up.

Michelle was a daddy’s girl, who never knew a stranger. She was bubbly, determined, fearless, and known to be a little stubborn.

Michelle started at ArtForce as a student, and progressed into production management. There she helped kids get their GEDs, get jobs, and get accepted to college. She was an integral part of fundraising for ArtForce. She was inspired by John Mark to pursue this path in her life.

She was the face of United Way, and was very involved in her community.

Words cannot express how deeply Michelle will be missed by all who knew her.

Michelle passed away Friday, July 31, 2020 at the age of 29. She is survived by her husband, Mike Curl; daughter, Chloe Curl; parents, Gary (Deborah) Jackson and Judy Jackson; siblings, DeMarco (Amber) Turner-Jackson, Raymond (Angela) Jackson; many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, and a host of extended family and friends.
