looking at Jackson’s official Instagram page, where he had amassed over 35,000 followers, he appeared to be living a normal life. Fittingly, his final Instagram post before he died was in support of the Buccaneers and their journey to winning Super Bowl LV last Sunday.
On January 24, Jackson shared a meme and wrote, “#awesome win by @buccaneers! 🎉 Aaron Rodgers look at the Packers coaches in the locker room post game. 😲 #letsgo.”
