Jaxson had a passion and commitment to the game of baseball. He played on many teams with many coaches and was always chosen for the All-Star teams. His natural talent and skill were recognized early on. He could play any position, but excelled at short stop and was most known for his mean, side arm pitching. He left his mark on this community and beyond and will be loved and missed by all who knew him. Keep smiling that beautiful smile, sweet boy.

Rest in Heaven, buddy!
