Robert Jackson Rohm

Robert Jackson Rohm

Robert Jackson Rohm, age 51, passed away unexpectedly January 24, 2023. He grew up in the Jamestown area and was a 1989 graduate of Southwestern Central School where he was a scholar athlete in track and field.

Earning a degree in business from Miami University of Ohio, he completed a semester of law school at the University of Buffalo before pursuing his gift as a singer/songwriter and creator of seven albums.

Jackson’s legion of loyal fans has followed him across the country to hear his music and be inspired by his amazing gift to perform, compose beautiful songs, and lift the energy of any room he walked into -be it a stage in a thousand-person theater or a humble kitchen of anyone’s home. He carried the torch for his family and friends when it came to pursuing our dreams relentlessly.

He was an “Loving Husband” to Theresa with whom he recently relocated to Florida, a “Super Dad” to his six-year-old son Asher who adores him, “Uncle Jackson” to his awe-struck nieces and nephews who idolize him, and simply “Jackson” to his dad, mom, friends, and fans…he has been the clear example and inspiration to us all.

In addition to the love for his music, he touched the lives of countless others through his selfless giving. Offering to write and perform music for charity events, weddings or funerals, Jackson was always focused on supporting others.

He was a natural leader and passionate competitor. Whether swimming across the Niagara River or jumping from the Chautauqua Lake bridge, Jackson was always up for a challenge. The Fourth-of-July was his favorite time of year and at Johnson’s annual picnics, he looked forward to participating in every game. Jackson lived life to the fullest in many ways and will be sorely missed.

It’s likely there will be a gathering this summer among friends to celebrate Jackson Rohm, reflecting his signature song “Fourth-of-July.”

He is survived by his wife, Theresa Waby Rohm; son, Robert Asher Rohm; mother, Leslie P. Howe; father, Robert F. Rohm, Jr. (Kathleen); sisters, Amy R. Brinkley (John) and Susan J. Battler; and Theresa’s parents Nancy and Ron Waby. He is further survived by several aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews including Laura Otander (Randy) and Bruce Battler (Judy).

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be sent to the Jackson Rohm Fund at Chautauqua Region Community Foundation, 418 Spring Street, Jamestown, New York 14701.

Arrangements for a memorial service celebrating Jackson’s life will follow.
