Jackson Matthew Dillow

March 26, 2004 — March 12, 2024

Jackson Matthew Dillow, 19, of Princeton, WV passed away Tuesday, March 12, 2024 at WVU Medicine Princeton Community Hospital. Born March 26, 2004 in Bluefield, WV, Jackson was a son of Jay and Melissa Hart. Jackson enjoyed a career at Cole Nissan and Planet Fitness. Jackson enjoyed weight lifting and spending time with his fiancé and his family. Jackson was excited to become a father later this year. He enjoyed life and was a joy to anyone that ever met him. His presence and positive attitude touched his co-workers, family, and friends. He was always a class-clown and would do anything to make you smile. The women in his life were the most important to him. He shared a special bond with his mother and grandmother, and his best friend, his sister, Billie Jean. For his cousins, aunt, uncles, nieces, and nephews, he was a motivator and protector. He had a servants heart; always willing to lend a hand to friends and strangers alike. Jackson was looking forward to his future with the love of his life, Kya Hall, and their unborn daughter, Naomi. Jackson touched many lives in his short nineteen years. Jackson was one of a kind, and in his own words, “built different.”

Those left to cherish Jackson’s memory are his parents, Jay and Melissa Hart; brothers, Jayce Hart and Brendon Rotenberry; sisters, Braelynn Hart, Brittany Parks, Billie Jean Casey, Peyton Rotenberry, and Bella Kanode; grandparents, Richard Dillow and Lisa, and Billy Casey; special grandmother, Phyllis Casey, and Jaycee and Judy Hart; fiancé, Kya Hall and unborn daughter, Naomi Dillow; numerous aunts, uncles and cousins also survive.

Funeral services will be conducted 11:00 AM Thursday, March 21, 2024 at Cravens-Shires Funeral Home with Ravin Fields, Jr. officiating. Interment will follow at Woodlawn Memorial Park where Dakota Alexander, Tyler Coy, Christian Carter, Justin Bailey, Johnathan Angel, and Stephano Kanode will serve as pallbearers. Serving as honorary pallbearers will be Charlie Meadows, Jayce Hart, Karson Shelton, and Saint Hamlin.
