Vincent Jackson died on the night of Monday to Tuesday in a small hotel in the Tampa area, leaving a wife and four children in disarray.
The former Buccaneers wide receiver, heavily involved in Florida charity, was just 38 years old. The Hillsborough County Sheriff, where the hotel was located, announced the opening of an investigation, just to clarify the circumstances. “It could be several weeks before we know what led to the untimely and tragic death of Vincent Jackson”the sheriff’s office said in a statement. “The medical examiner’s office continues to conduct a thorough investigation alongside the Sheriff’s office. Based on statements made by Jackson’s relatives, his family had reason to believe he was suffering from chronic alcoholism and concussions. . “
Yes but here it is, the family of Vincent Jackson, who has participated in the NFL All-Star Game three times, did not appreciate the portrait portrayed by the sheriff’s office and made it known. “The Sheriff does not speak for the Jackson family”, a spokesperson for the Jackson family said. “The full autopsy report won’t be available for weeks.”
Did he suffer from ETC?
In the meantime, Vincent Jackson’s family would like to deal with his bereavement, but agreed to donate Vincent Jackson’s brain to the ETC Center at Boston University to see if Vincent Jackson suffered from chronic traumatic encephalopathy (causing fatigue, irritability, depression …), which can only be diagnosed post mortem and made the NFL tremble on its foundations, the blows received during a career apparently being the cause … “If anything can be learned from his death and if it could help someone else, that’s what Vincent would want, he who always wanted to help those around him”the Jackson family spokeswoman said.
