MRS JACKSON ASKS PUBLIC TO KEEP HER SON; JESSEE JACKSON JR IN THEIR PRAYERS

The least public of Chicago’s famed Jackson family,and the mother of U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. (D-Ill.) spoke openly regarding her son’s treatment for a mood disorder while speaking at the Rainbow PUSH coalition conference in Chicago.

Jackie Jackson told reporters that her son had experienced severe disappointment — some of it politically related — and that “young people don’t rebound from disappointment like me and my husband.”

“He thought he was going to be the senator – thought he was going to have a chance to run for mayor,” Jackson continued.

The remarks were Jackie Jackson’s first since the congressman took a leave of absence due, initially, to “exhaustion.” She did not offer any additional details about his condition.
