Kier Jackson Death – Dead: A great loss was made known to InsideEko. As friends and families of the deceased are mourning the passing of their loved and cherished Kier Jackson.
Having heard about this great loss, the family of this individual is passing through pains, mourning the unexpected passing of their beloved.
This departure was confirmed through social media posts made by Twitter users who pour out tributes, and condolences to the family of the deceased.
Kier always had a smile on his face and a joke coming out of his mouth,” said the principal at Red River High School, where Kier Jackson was a senior. “This year Kier was set to graduate from Red River High and start the next portion of his life’s journey. I personally have loved getting to know Kier these last few years. Every day I would look forward to seeing him, talking with him, and loved joking with him. He had an amazing smile and a personality that was infectious.”
Kier is described as a kind individual, well-liked, someone who left a positive impact on so many people. He was steadfast and hardworking, but also loved to play sports or hang out with his family.
“He was a strong person,” said one of his sisters. “He was our backbone when our mom passed away. He made sure we were always alright.”
On Wednesday, October 21st, Kier’s stepmother was heading home from work. She passed by the neighborhood basketball court and saw Kier playing with some friends. A few minutes later, she had just arrived home and was still changing out of her work clothes, when there was a banging on the door. When she answered, someone told her that her stepson had been shot.
Kier was taken to hospital in a private vehicle, but died of his injuries. He was 17 years old.
“Before my mama passed away I made a promise to her that I was going to make sure Kier and my sister were good,” said one of his sisters. “To me I feel like I broke my promise to my mother.”
Coming to work is usually one of the easiest things I have to do. I love my job as principal of Red River High School. I love my teachers, staff and especially my students, after all they are the reason I have a job in the first place. However, today was extremely difficult, because we lost an amazing senior last night.
Never in my time of education have I lost a current student in this way. I am completely heart broken and still in shock over the loss of Kier Jackson. Everyone here at RRHS is grieving and mourning over one of our beloved seniors. Kier came to us half way through his sophomore year and immediately became a Bulldog. Kier always had a smile on his face and a joke coming out of his mouth. This year Kier was set to graduate from Red River High and start the next portion of his life’s journey. I personally have loved getting to know Kier these last few years. Every day I would look forward to seeing him, talking with him, and loved joking with him. He had an amazing smile and a personality that was infectious.
As we all grieve and mourn this loss we have set up several counseling spots across campus using our own school counselors and other counselors from other schools in our parish. We will continue to reach out to our students, faculty, and staff to make sure we provide them the resources they need to get through this terrible tragedy.
I want you all to join me in praying for all of Kier Jackson’s family, I pray they find the peace and hope that only comes from our savior Jesus.
As I left worked today I sat down in his home room desk and prayed. Students I want you know its ok to cry and reach out for help. I am here for you.
