Art and Design Prof. Shaun
Jackson, who suffered serious
third degree burns in a plane
crash in Sarasota; Fla. on Satur-
day, passed away Tuesday after-
noon. He was 63 and is survived

by his wife, Cathy, and family.
Jackson was in critical condi-
tion at the Regional Burn Cen-
ter at Tampa General Hospital
when he passed, the Bradenton
Herald reported. Neither the
University nor Tampa General
Hospital have announced the
cause of his death.
Jackson held interdisciplin-
ary professorships in the School
of Art and Design, the Taubman
College of Architecture and
Urban Planning and the Ross
School of Business.
Jackson began his career in
the design industry while he was

still a student at the University.
As a student he founded Eclipse
Inc., which has grown into a
multi-million dollar design and
manufacturing company.
In two decades in the indus-
try, Jackson acquired more than
50 patents and received numer-
ous design awards, including
the IDEA award from Business
Week. His design firm, Shaun
Jackson Designs, worked with
clients ranging from Apple to
Nike to General Electric Medi-
cal Systems.
Jan-Henrik Andersen, an
associate professor of Art and

Design, said Jackson's work in
the industrial design industry
was well respected. He added
that Jackson prided himself on
building moveable technology
that was "comfortable, func-
tional and stylish."
"Shaun always strived for
excellence (in his work),"
Andersen said. "He always tried
to install a high standard of
intellectual and artistic crafts-
manship in his students."
Art and Design Dean Guna-
lan Nadarajan echoed Ander-
