About Kevin Wilson
Kevin Wilson was truly a good man. Unassuming and modest of his accomplishments. A veteran of the United States Navy who served his country with honor. A volunteer in his community who held a myriad of increasingly important positions over twenty years with the Jackson Volunteer Fire Department and who served with pride and distinction. A husband and father whose loyalty and commitment was unsurpassed.
A medical professional for most of his adult life, Kevin understood the true meaning of quality patient care. Kevin understood that the delivery of quality care was accomplished by surpassing hospital and governmental standards and protocols.
An avid reader with a most eclectic taste, he often voiced his concerns over the increasing cost of reading materials, particularly for college bound students.
