Little mention of Jackson Jr. at PUSH forum

July 14, 2012 (CHICAGO)

Jackson's brother gave the only comment about the congressman.

"On behalf of my brother, I thank you all for your prayers, your ongoing consideration," Jonathon Jackson said.

Doctors say Jackson, Jr. is dealing with a mood disorder.

Other speakers included Andre Davis, who spent 32 years in prison for a rape and murder conviction that was overturned based on DNA evidence.

"The most important for me and how I felt was to simply listen to what God was whispering to my heart, and here I am," Davis said.

Jonathan Jackson remarked Davis's mother has stood by her son the same way his mother is supporting his brother's recovery.
