Jackson Willett Curran, 21, born December 26, 1995, passed away suddenly on June 25, 2017. He graduated from The Baylor School and attended Middle Tennessee State University. He is survived by his mother, Anne Lloyd Willett and brother Patrick Francis Curran, of Chattanooga, Tenn.; his father, Mark Edward Curran, of Chattanooga Tenn., and 16 aunts and uncles, of Mentone, Atlanta, Ga., San Francisco, Calif., Roanoke, Va., Boulder, Colo., Boston, Mass., Guilford, Conn. and Dennis, Mass., as well as many cousins. He is preceded in death by his grandparents, Elbert H. (Bud) and Jean Willett, of Anniston, and Dr. John Francis (Bud) and Barbara Curran of Dennis, Mass. Jackson was a handsome, brilliant, creative young man and had a clever sense of humor. He enjoyed skateboarding, playing street hockey, playing lacrosse, listening to music, watching movies and spending time with his friends. He had a zest for life and enjoyed living on the edge. He loved rock climbing, snow boarding, and roller coasters and, as a little boy, he would climb on top of the playhouses rather than in them. He also had a gentle, sensitive spirit and was extremely empathetic of others. He was considered a fiercely loyal friend and kind soul by many. He was deeply devoted to his brother, Patrick and loved him dearly. There will be two family services to distribute his ashes, one in Dennis, Mass. and the other in Anniston. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in memory of Jackson Willett Curran to Baylor School, Attention Advancement Office, 171 Baylor School Road, Chattanooga, TN 37405, or online at http://baylorschool.org to a fund set up in his name for a memorial. Arrangements are by Cremation Center of Chattanooga 1345 Hickory Valley Road, Chattanooga 423-362-5999
