Hunter Don Jackson Memorial Scholarship
Hunter Jackson was unexpectedly lost at the age of 21 due to an ATV accident on June 6th, 2020. Hunter had a larger than life personality and lived his life to the fullest. He was an avid hunter, sportsman and enjoyed being outdoors. He played football from second grade all the way through until he graduated from Wylie High in 2017. His love for playing and watching sports led to him pursuing a degree as a Sports Business Major at Stephen F. Austin State University.
The lives that were touched or changed by Hunter is overwhelming. The number of stories that began with, “I wouldn’t have made it through without Hunter”, “Hunter helped me”, “Hunter always had my back”, and “Hunter was always there for me”, have been shared over the past months. Hunter was loved by all those who knew him. He will be remembered for his unwavering heart.
We believe the best way to celebrate Hunter is to honor how he lived his life. We will continue his legacy by helping others the way he did. Thus, The Hunter Don Jackson Memorial Foundation was born.
Along with Wylie ISD, the family has established the Hunter Don Jackson Memorial Scholarship. This scholarship will be awarded annually to a Wylie High senior.
We hope that everyone strives to live life as Hunter did, with intent, to the fullest and giving unconditional love!
