All proceeds will benefit JR Hearts, a 501(c)3 that provides financial assistance to families with children experiencing major medical challenges. Because of the outpouring of support at Jackson’s Jam last year, we were able to help pay off medical bills for two children battling cancer. If you would like to make a donation, please mail your donation to: JR Hearts – P.O. Box 589 – Oconomowoc, WI 53066. All donations are tax deductible!
Jackson’s Jam was founded in memory of Jackson Reese, a charismatic little boy who passed away unexpectedly on the eve of his second birthday. Jackson’s family knows the financial burden that comes with caring for a sick child because he was born with a heart defect and underwent open heart surgery at five days old. After coming home, Jackson thrived. He was growing strong and was happy and healthy, but on April 20, 2013, after going down for an afternoon nap, Jackson peacefully moved to heaven.
Jackson’s Jam is a way to honor and remember a loving boy who touched the lives of many.
