Chandler Hugh Jackson

Sep 14 1992 - Jul 06 2005

Chandler Hugh Jackson was a student at Arbor Creek Middle School, Carrollton, Texas and a member of the youth group of Hebron Community Church. Chandler was an avid sportsman who enjoyed skateboarding, golf, scuba diving and most importantly playing baseball. From the time Chandler was 3 he was participating in little league baseball. His success on the field culminated each year with him being selected as a member of the Plano Little League All Star Team. This was considered a major feat since Chandler played short stop and pitcher on teams where all members were a year older. His lifelong dream of playing on a traveling team was realized this year when he joined the new Texas Lightening team. In the final game that sent the team to the National Championship to be held next week in Memphis, he drove in the only 2 runs and produced the only over-the-fence homerun for the tournament. Chandler loved music, art and history. He spent many hours listening to his Gramps as he told stories of WWII, which helped develop his passion for history. His sense of humor and enthusiastic personality had a way of bringing smiles to all those around him. Chandler’s love of family and the outdoors brought him to Kentucky each year where he cherished the wide open space of his family’s farm and the traditional family Fourth of July celebration. He was beloved by his classmates and teachers and always gravitated to those from less fortunate circumstances in life. Chandler had a kind and loving spirit that helped anyone in need. He loved life…he loved nature…he loved others. Chandler brought sunshine to the lives of all that knew him. He is survived by his parents, Rick and Charmane Jackson of Frisco, Texas; sister, Lindsey M. Brunsman of Dallas, Texas; grandmothers, Olean Jackson of Cunningham, Kentucky and Lois Eisemann of Grapevine, Texas. He was loved dearly and will be greatly missed by numerous aunts, uncles and cousins in Kentucky, Texas and other areas. His grandfather, Hugh Cecil Jackson preceded him in death. Funeral services will be held at 1:00 p.m., Wednesday, July 13, 2005, at the Hebron Community Church, 2020 East Hebron Parkway, Carrollton, Texas 75007, with Pastor Eric Champion officiating. Interment will follow at Ridgeview West Memorial Park in Frisco, Texas. The family will receive friends at the church for visitation from 6:00-9:00 p.m., Tuesday, July 12, 2005. To convey condolences or to sign an online registry, please visit In lieu of flowers, the family request memorials be made in memory of Chandler to the “The Chandler Hugh Jackson Youth Foundation” in care of any Bank of America, in the United States. This foundation will help less fortunate children participate in special activities and various camps. Chandler was a very special, caring and passionate person who enjoyed every moment of his life. He cared a tremendous amount for everyone. According to his father, Rick, his favorite saying was “THIS IS THE BEST DAY OF MY LIFE!” Chandler was having another one of his “Great Days” on the farm in Kentucky riding the tractor and playing baseball with three of his cousins and his dad preparing for the upcoming National Championship Tournament, before going to the community golf course. His precious life tragically ended in a golfing accident on the back 9. Chandler would want to leave a legacy of “Great Days” in the lives of children, which will be accomplished through your generous donations to the Chandler Hugh Jackson Youth Foundation.
