DeSean Jackson, of the Philadelphia Eagles, and Gayle Jackson, President, of the DeSean Jackson Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer extend their deepest sympathies to the family, friends and high school athletes who’s lives have been devastated by the passing of Coach Mike Scott, a high school football coach, in Milton, GA, last night.  DeSean Jackson states, “This is personal” and we have to work hard to raise funds for research to eradicate Pancreatic Cancer.  Jackson lost his beloved father, William Jackson, to Pancreatic Cancer in 2009 which fuels his passion for his foundation.

Subject: Comforting Thoughts…

Dear Mary Jane,
Our deepest and warmest sympathies are extended to you, your precious babies, extended family; and, all who were touched by Coach Mike’s life. Your husband suffered greatly with this disease and the predictable outcome now is the inevitable. Knowing that God has allowed him to enter into sweet and eternal rest must be a source of your strength and comfort. You will see him again praise God!
Praise our Lord and Savior in a loud voice during difficult times. He will hear your cry, soothe your heart and ease your pain. You will and can make it through! The days ahead will receive a confirmation of  just how much those young athletes you mentioned in our conversation, were touched, mentored and blessed by Coach Mike Scott’s teachings. Again, another source of strength to uplift your spirit and fuel your desire to continue on this journey.
The Bible teaches us that our life is not our own and we are to be a blessing to others. From what I understand, Coach Scott definitely fulfilled that mission over and above his calling. Once again, a channel of inspiration, energy and another opportunity for you to be proud of who your husband is and he will live on through the seeds that he planted in so many others’ lives…congratulations!
Continue to replay in your mind and never let go of the happy and fun times you shared. Two beautiful children were created for you to enjoy for the rest of your life and two more reasons to say Thank you Lord!
With that being said, there is so much work to be done in the field of pancreatic cancer. There is no cure. It’s much too soon now to discuss but once things slow down and you collect your thoughts, let’s talk about an action plan to combat and fight it. We have to find a cure in this lifetime so that no one else has to go down this same path or take this dreaded journey.
Please remember that DeSean and I are just a phone call, text message or email away.
God bless you,  Mary Jane, and we are praying for comfort, strength, peace and rest is our prayer.
