When I Think About My Son

Nov 6, 2020 | Unsolved Cases

The following is the opinion and personal experience of the writer.

When I think about my son Danny Lee Jackson, I think about how he loved life and how happy he was for each day. Unfortunately, his love for life ended; on July 8, 2020, was brutally murdered in Tucson, Az. Danny’s life was gone too soon due to a heartless and senseless act of violence. A heartbreaking phone call no mother ever wants to receive.

This tragedy has been very difficult to accept. All I have left of my son Danny is memories of how caring and loving he was. His strength, wisdom, and courage. His love for his mother, brother, and sister. No matter what was going on in his life, he always wanted to know if they were okay.

Danny filled my heart with so much joy; I will always love him with all my heart and miss him dearly. The deep pain from the loss of my son Danny has been with me every day. I feel that I have lost something of myself.

Nothing can prepare you for the death of your child. It just doesn’t seem natural. I will never understand why Danny, so full of life, is no longer here with me. I have so many unanswered questions, confusion, and so much pain for my family and me.

Danny’s family is pleading for justice for this horrible murder of their loved one. His life mattered. If you have any information, please contact 88-Crime to leave an anonymous tip. If your tip leads to an arrest, then you may be eligible for a reward amount of up to $27,500.
