MONTICELLO, INDUSTRIAL REPUBLICAN REPUBLICAN REPUBLICAN REPUBLI Kayvion Jackson, a juvenile athlete with a college football career awaiting him at Indiana Wesleyan University, died Sunday, leaving the Twin Lakes High School community and close-knit White County in Indiana in sadness.
While the cause of death has yet to be revealed, Jackson’s high school and football relatives have expressed their sadness on social media.
The Twin Lakes School Corporation announced on Facebook, “The Twin Lakes School Corporation expresses our thoughts and prayers to the family of Kayvion Jackson.” “We are heartbroken over the loss of such a wonderful young man.” He’s already left his imprint on us… And we’ll keep doing it indefinitely.”
The Indians football team struggled to find the right words to describe his loss.
Twin Lakes Football tweeted, “The TL Football Family got hit hard today.” “Kayvion was one of the most hardworking and kind people I’d ever met. The impact he had on and off the field is difficult to put into words. He is going to be sorely missed. #Family #RIP21”
According to the school district’s Facebook page, a prayer vigil has been organized for 9 p.m. Wednesday at the Twin Lakes High School football field.
Jackson, a senior defensive lineman from Monticello, Indiana, was named to Indiana Wesleyan University’s 2022 signing class in March. He rushed for five touchdowns and 65 tackles as a senior at Twin Lakes last autumn, earning him a spot on the Indiana Football Coaches Association’s Region IV all-star team.
“We’re overjoyed with the recruitment class of 2022!” The Victory Sports Network spoke with Jordan Langs, the head football coach. “Our coaches worked tirelessly to find prospects who will uphold the high standards set in our program and serve as exceptional ambassadors for the University’s goal.” We’re looking forward to welcoming them on campus this fall!”
Jackson’s death came four months after the death of another Twin Lakes adolescent. Sgt. Stephanie Thompson of the Indiana State Police and her 17-year-old daughter Mya, a famed high school swimmer, died in a house fire in Monticello in February, according to the Journal & Courier.
