Charles was born on March 23, 1946 in San Diego, CA to parents Charles Raymond and Ida Mae Pearson Jackman. Growing up he lived in Kansas, Texas, Florida, and California following the career of his father who worked in the aerospace industry.

He later met the love of his life, Mary Phillips, while attending college in Cocoa, Florida. Chuck married Mary on August 13, 1966 and started their married life in Cocoa. In 1970, he moved to Gainesville and went to work for the Beechnut Baby Food Company and in 1974 he moved to Jacksonville to begin what would become a successful 30-year career with the RJ Reynolds Tobacco Company. Throughout these years and into retirement Chuck enjoyed the lifelong friendships he made with his RJR family. More than anything he was a dedicated family man who was very thoughtful and always concerned about the needs of others. He was a deep thinker about the world and politics.
