The Jackson Casey Fund
Our mission is to keep the memory and spirit of Jackson Casey alive throughout the community by providing college scholarships for the children of our nation’s soldiers.
Jackson was an energetic and caring eleven year old who touched many people with his kindness in a short time. He loved sports and enjoyed competing, especially with his brother and sister. He was a great teammate, enthusiastic and supportive in victory or defeat. Jackson was a fun and loving brother and friend to everyone he met.
Jackson enjoyed attending military ceremonies with his grandfather, former chief of staff of the Army General George W. Casey, Jr. and was fascinated by the military and our men and women in uniform. Jackson’s giving nature and huge heart combined with his love of the military made this feel like the right place to focus the work of The Jackson Casey Fund.
In partnership with ThanksUSA, the Jackson Casey Fund was created to honor the women and men of the Armed Forces by providing need based scholarships for their children. The scholarships given in Jackson’s name benefit families from in the Metro DC and Colorado with an emphasis on Northern Virginia. Since its inception in 2012, the Jackson Casey Fund has raised over $375,000 to benefit the mission of ThanksUSA and over the two years awarded 40 scholarships in Jackson’s name.
