Obituary

Jackson Scott Clark
March 12, 2009- October 3, 2020
Our sweet Jackson, “Goose,” was born March 12, 2009 in Colby, Kansas to Joshua and Lindsey Clark. Jackson tragically left this earth too soon and returned to live with his loving Heavenly Father, alongside his younger brother Cameron, as a result of an impaired driver hitting their family’s vehicle as they were traveling to Utah for Fall Break.
Jackson is the oldest of five siblings whom he loved, adored and protected unconditionally. Jackson was a bright and energetic young man, who was full of life. He was adventurous, loved to explore and enjoyed anything outdoors. He was an enthusiastic fisherman and spent hours casting and reeling in “whoppers” at any given opportunity. Jackson loved animals of all kinds and was quite knowledgeable on the topic. He was often found hunting for lizards, snakes and other creatures in the wash behind his home. Jackson also enjoyed being involved in the Cub Scouts of America organization. During his years as a Cub Scout he earned all the rank advancements necessary to receive the Arrow of Light award. He won 1st place overall at the 2019 Catalina Counsel Pinewood Derby and qualified to race his car in New York City at Times Square.
A lot of Jackson’s time was spent on the soccer field. He was a talented key player and shared his love for the game with those around him. Some of his favorite past times were spent on the dirt bike track when his family lived in California.
Jackson excelled in everything he put his mind to. He had a thirst for learning and couldn’t get enough of a good book. In his downtime he could be found with his nose deep into a thick novel, creating worlds on Minecraft, playing card and board games and engaging in detailed conversations about Star Wars. Jackson was a light to all who knew him. He had many friends and was known for his tender heart and loving spirit towards others. He was a hugger and never failed to express his love for his family members.
Jackson was silly. He had an amazing sense of humor beyond his years. He loved to tease and tell jokes and then laugh with a Jackson-sized grin on his face. He was easy to have around and his presence in this earthly life will forever be missed. Our hearts are shattered by the unexpected loss of this stellar, young boy. His family finds peace in knowing that his mission is being continued on the other side of the veil. Families are eternal and we look forward to being reunited with him in the next life. Jackson is survived by his father, Joshua Clark; mother, Lindsey VanWoerkom Clark; siblings Katelynn (9), Austin (5), and Nathan (1); grandparents, aunts, uncles, many cousins and close friends.
In lieu of flowers, a donation can be made to the Clark family on Venmo @TheClarkFamilyMemorialFund
Due to the current Covid-19 restrictions, a private service will be held in his honor on October 17.

Jackson filled our hearts with his exuberance. At a young age of 4 he delivered a birthday invitation to our home. He wanted my daughter Kayla, 3, to come and was there to personally hand her the invitation. He had courage to do this even though it wasn’t as easy as he’d expect it to be. I loved seeing him jump on the trampoline and was always so inclusive of Kayla. I always hoped we would cross paths again but I guess I’ll have to wait till I see him where there will be no more tears. Come Lord, come.

I am so sorry that you are gone baby Jackson. I still have my birthday card that you made on a note book page. I still have the dinosaur you and your grandma made me. You were so sweet to my son. I remember attending your baptism where you gave your life to christ in Colton California. Your Dad baptized you.

I did not know Jackson personally but he attended the elementary school here in California called Bryn Mawr a while back, is what I have been told. I am a teacher here at the school and my heart aches for his family. I thrive in the hope that the family has and I share as well that he is in heaven taking care of so many that have left us too soon. My heart is full by reading about his legacy in the short time span he was here. He has made many lives better by his presence. God bless all of you!! With love, Heather Gil-Lastrina 2nd Grade Teacher, Bryn Mawr Elementary School
