John Jackson

Attached you will find the obituary for John Jackson. You will note towards the end of the notice John requested memorial contributions be made to the Zeta Chi Alumni Association for a scholarship in his honor. “The strong bonds John formed during his college years lead him to request memorial contributions following his death be made to the Pi Kappa Alpha, Zeta Chi Alumni Association where a scholarship will be set up in his name”. We will be working with John’s family to honor his request in the near future. Anyone interested in being a part of John’s scholarship should make their check out to PiKA, Zeta Chi Alumni Association, and mail to Kathy Jackson, 901 Fairway Place, Richmond, MO 64085.

John Jackson visitation and funeral information

It is with great sadness I inform everyone of the passing of John Jackson on December 18, 2009. John’s attitude and spirit is an inspiration to all. He knew of Zeta Chi’s re colonization plans for Spring 2011. He made the trip from Richmond to “Line the Halls” for our October 8, 2009 presentation to IFC, a tremendous effort and strength on his part.

John’s visitation will be December 21, 2009, 5-7 PM at Richmond Methodist Church, (just west of the square) 212 West Main St., Richmond, MO 64085, Phone (816) 776-2122. Funeral services will be December 22, 2009 at 2:00 PM at the same facility.

Communication should be sent to John’s wife, Kathy, 901 Fairway Place, Richmond, MO 64085

Zeta Chi Alumni Association News!

Big news received December 14, 2009. There has been a major change in the Fraternity expansion process plans at Missouri State University. It is important to remember the plan MSU announced recently was for Sigma Nu to colonize in the Spring of 2010 and Beta Theta Pi to colonize in the Spring of 2011. Sigma Nu will colonize in the Spring of 2010. The change is Beta has elected to withdraw from the colonization process at MSU. As a result, Pi Kappa Alpha-Zeta Chi will re colonize in the Spring of 2011!!! Our Association’s #1 objective has always been: Re colonize Zeta Chi. We have accepted the offer from MSU. We now have the opportunity to return our Fraternity to campus in the Spring semester of 2011. There has been much work from many alumni over the years and many highs and lows. Today it has all paid off and in the Spring semester of 2011 Zeta Chi officially returns to the campus of MSU.

Even before this news, the committee has met to start planning for next year which will be a big year for ZXAA. 1.) Rally Around the Truck (more details to come early in January 2010). 2.) Zeta Chi re colonization in the Spring of 2011. 3.) 5th Anniversary of ZXAA reunion.

More details of each will be shared when finalized. Never before has the entire Fraternity, all generations, come together as a group. In 2010 we will do just that and you will be asked to attend the 5th Anniversary of ZXAA reunion. It will be during the reunion our 1940 Ford Firetruck will be “returned to service”. Repairs will begin early in 2010.

Any questions on re colonization or suggestions for the reunion can be sent to me at or call me at (417) 882-3266. On behalf of the ZXAA committee, we wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a great Holiday Season. THANKS! FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
