Jackson Antonio Clark was born in September 2015, and passed away in September 2017, shortly after his second birthday, from unknown causes (see SUDC). Jackson was a beautiful, healthy, loving boy and we will always carry him in our hearts.

We made this site to remember Jackson's stories, to share our grieving, and to remember him in our actions and encouraging others to do the same.

About the Name

One game we often played with Jackson was "tall like a tree... and throw the leaves!", where he'd stretch his arms up high, and then bring them back down again, throwing whatever was in his hands. It started out with leaves in the park with his Tita, then became a sneaky way of changing a shirt, or a new game to play with a ball.

At Jackson's memorial service, his Tita shared a poem about this catchphrase — you can read it here in its entirety.
