Jackson Casey Fund
About Jackson Casey
(July 13, 1999 - March 31, 2011)
Jackson was an energetic and caring eleven year old who touched many people with his kindness in a short time. He loved sports and enjoyed competing, especially with his brother and sister. He was a great teammate, enthusiastic and supportive in victory or defeat. Jackson was a fun and loving brother and friend to everyone he met.
Jackson enjoyed attending military ceremonies with his grandfather, former chief of staff of the Army General George W. Casey, Jr. and was fascinated by the military and our men and women in uniform. Jackson’s giving nature and huge heart combined with his love of the military made this feel like the right place to focus the work of The Jackson Casey Fund.
In partnership with ThanksUSA, the Jackson Casey Fund was created to honor the women and men of the Armed Forces by providing need based scholarships for their children. The scholarships given in Jackson’s name will benefit families from Virginia with an emphasis on Northern Virginia. For the 2012-2013 school year, 15 scholarships totalling $45,000 were awarded in Jackson Casey’s name. Learn more about the scholars here.
To keep the memory and spirit of Jackson Casey alive throughout the community by providing college scholarships for the children of our nation’s soldiers.

Jackson Casey Memorial Golf Tournament
The first annual Jackson Casey Memorial Golf Tournament, presented by Apex, took place on July 16, 2012 at the Belle Haven Country Club in Alexandria, VA. Over 140 players gathered from all over the country in loving memory of Jackson. The day began with a golf tournament and continued to a reception with both a live and silent auction.
Both the golf tournament and contributions to The Jackson Casey Fund raised over $200,000 to benefit ThanksUSA.
