Solomon Jackson Memorial Fund
Pursuing a degree in Studio Art at UB, Solomon was a redshirt-sophomore defensive end from Stone Mountain, Georgia and a graduate of Tucker High School. All who had the pleasure and good fortune of knowing Solomon will remember him as a truly bright light on the field, in the classroom and around campus. We will remember him for his love of the game and his love of life.
From the outpouring of prayers and support during the past week it has been abundantly clear just how many lives he touched on a daily basis through his contributions and character—as an athlete, as a student, as a friend and mentor to others. Solomon demonstrated tremendous promise as a student-athlete, both on and off the field. He was a young man of great character and integrity. He held these values at a very early age and brought them to all he undertook. He was active in his community and in his church—a genuinely kind spirit who was devoted to his family and to the well-being of people around him.
The best way we can honor his memory is for each of us to keep those values close in our own lives. Any donations are greatly appreciated and will be used to set up a memorial/scholarship in Solomon’s name as well as to help defer medical expenses.
Many of our sons played football with Solomon at Tucker High School or the University at Buffalo, and hearing something like this breaks your heart. Please continue to flood the heavens with prayers for Solomon's family.
I love this family so much. Solomon was such a bright light for me each and every day I taught him. What a joy it was to have him as my art student for so many years. And to his father, I remember all those days you brought his lunch to my classroom, such a dedicated father. Solomon sure new what it was to be loved.
