CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas – A new book of poems titled “Open Heart” was recently published by friends of Dr. Robb Jackson as a final tribute to the late Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi English Professor.  All pieces are original works by Jackson.

Since Jackson began his career with the University in 1988, he has enriched the lives of countless students, colleagues, and area residents through his extraordinary teaching, wisdom, public service, and faith.

Jackson also worked with disadvantaged individuals in underprivileged neighborhoods, and with men and women battling drug addictions, bringing them healing through poetry therapy.

Copies of “Open Heart” are available for a minimum donation of $10. All proceeds will be contributed to the Robb Jackson Scholarship Fund which benefits University English major undergraduates.

To purchase a copy of the book, contact Michelle Harmon at 361.825.3457; or email michelle.harmon@tamucc.edu.
