Jackson was born on October 30, 2006 in Gulfport, Miss. to Ryan and Shellie Umfress.He was a senior at Hamilton High School, Class of 2025, where he was a gifted athlete who excelled in football and basketball. He was an all-around well loved member of the HHS student body.
Jackson attended and was a member of Hamilton Freewill Baptist Church where he was active in the youth group and always willing to help anyone. He received Christ as his Savior in May 2014 and was baptized.
His passing leaves a void that will never be filled.  We are so thankful to God for allowing us to have Jackson for 17 years and love him. Not a day went by that he did not know he was loved beyond measure by his family. Lord, please use Jackson’s life for Your glory to help others come to know You before it’s eternally too late. Thank you for the reassurance we will see our precious Jackson once again in Heaven.
