Jesse Jackson Jr. wants his constituents to know that he loves them to death, according to a Matteson pastor.

In his Sunday sermon at Victory Apostolic Church in Matteson, the Rev. Andrew Singleton Jr. spoke of a two-hour phone conversation he says he had with Jackson, who recently returned to the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota.

Audio of the sermon was sent to Patch, but church officials said they did not make the recording. Officials at the church, however, confirmed Singleton's mention of his conversation with Jackson during the sermon.
