Jesse Jackson Sr. on son's illness: 'He's making progress'
August 17, 2012 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- The Reverend Jesse Jackson is giving new insight into his son's treatment for bipolar disorder.
"He's making progress but he has a way to go. And you cannot rush it," he told ABC7. "You have to let it take its own course. I'm glad to see he has had good treatment and evaluation. Now he's in the treatment stage and he is working diligent, but it's not something he can rush."
Jesse Junior met with former Congressman Patrick Kennedy at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota where Jackson is being treated. Kennedy has also struggled with the disorder.
