Raymond (Raymundo) Wesley Jackson

Raymundo Wesley Jackson, 50, passed unexpectedly on Monday, November 8th, 2021 during work at Elting Memorial Library. Raymundo was born on August 5th 1971, son of the late Howard and Joan Jackson. With his passing, Raymundo left behind his loving husband, Josh Lulov, who shared 22 years with him, and several siblings, nieces, and nephews. He grew up in Long Island and graduated from Sayville Highschool in 1989.

Raymundo was well known in his community as a librarian who possessed a knowledge as varied and detailed as the books which filled the walls of Elting Memorial Library. Whether it was language, history,art, politics,or all things science, he was an unending resource for those looking to learn and discuss. His greatest thirst for knowledge was in the field of Marine Biology, which he pursued at Stony Brook University and Dowling College. However, it’s safe to say that there is no way to really define the limits of the interests for the great intellect of Raymundo, as he explored with great vigor all the facets of life.

As a devoted husband, brother, uncle, and friend, Raymond loved those who were closest to him passionately. He spoke to his family and friends daily and never failed to share his life and his thoughts with them. In honor of him, all are welcome to the Memorial Service being held on November 20th, 10am-12pm as well as 4pm to 6pm, at the Elting Memorial Library. Please register ahead of time at www.eltinglibrary.org and bring a dish along if you are able.
