Edwin Jackson Obituary
Indianapolis Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson, a former standout football player and wrestler at Westlake High and Georgia Southern, was killed by a suspected drunk driver on Feb. 4, 2018. The accident occurred on I-70 in Indianapolis.
Jackson, 26, was an inside linebacker and spent all of this season on injured reserve.
Jackson was a walk-on at Georgia Southern after not being recruited out of high school. He rose up the depth chart and was eventually the team's leading tackler as a senior. He was on the Georgia Southern team that defeated Florida in 2013.
Jackson was a Class 5A wrestling state championship finalist at 189 pounds.
Jackson, the sixth of 11 children, remained close to Westlake High. His younger brother Steve was on the 2016 football team and the elder Jackson gave an inspiring speech at the team's football banquet.
Visitation for Edwin Jackson will be from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 11, 2018, at Big Bethel AME Church, 220 Auburn Ave.
Edwin Jackson's funeral will be at 11 a.m. Monday at the church.
