Jackson was seen clutching a cricket ball as he left the procession which was hosted by Eddie McGuire and attended by a litany of high-profile guests including sporting legends and media personalities.
Former Australian cricket captain Mark Taylor and batsman Glenn Maxwell were pictured at the service while former England captain Michael Vaughan was also in attendance.
Warne's grief-stricken family took his coffin, draped in a St Kilda Saints scarf, for a final lap of his beloved St Kilda Football ground as his close friends watched on from the stands.

Two songs played during the outdoor part of the service were Fix You by Coldplay and finally, as Warne's body was driven away for a final time, Simply The Best by Tina Turner.
Emotional lyrics from the Coldplay song include 'lights will guide you home' and 'tears stream down your face when you lose something you cannot replace'.
Simply The Best was fitting for an icon of Australian cricket who has often been described as irreplaceable.
Warne's youngest daughter, Summer, was in tears as the service drew to a close, while his oldest daughter, Brooke, kept sunglasses on during the procession.

Guests, wearing their matching Saints scarves in a nod to Warne's favourite AFL team, were instructed to put their glasses 'high to the sky' for one final farewell.
'To Warnie,' close friend and television personality McGuire said, as cheers erupted from the crowd.
Jackson, 22, proved yet again that he was prepared to step up for his family in his father's absence as he led his sisters Brooke, 24, and Summer, 20, to a waiting chauffeur and liaised with security at St Kilda Football Club where the funeral was held.

Warne was a keen golfer, particularly after he retired from cricket, and would often travel the world to play in friendly and competitive matches with his mates.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison has confirmed he will attend the public service - the night after the Federal Budget is handed down.
Coldplay frontman Chris Martin and singer Ed Sheeran are expected to send video messages to be played on big screens.
The state memorial will be ticketed and live-streamed for those who can't be there in person, with tickets to be made available to the public soon.
People wanting to attend the event will be able to enter a public ballot for one of 50,000 tickets.
More tickets may become available, depending on demand.
Warne was found unresponsive in his luxury villa at the Samujana resort on Koh Samui, Thailand, about 5pm on Friday, March 4 after suffering a heart attack.
His close friend Andrew Neophitou performed CPR on Warne for up to 20 minutes before first responders arrived and took over, but could not save him.
