In a statement, Sheriff Chad Chronister said, "My heart aches for the many loved ones Vincent Jackson leaves behind, from his wife and children to the Buccaneers nation that adored him. Mr. Jackson was a devoted man who put his family and community above everything else. Football aside, he touched countless lives through his Jackson In Action 83 Foundation. We shared a passion for supporting military families, and three years ago, Jackson was even made an honorary deputy by the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office to recognize his dedication to the community. He will be sorely missed by not only football fans across the country, but also the people here in Hillsborough County who reaped the benefits of his generous contributions."
During his 12-year career, he spent the first seven with the Chargers before going to the Buccaneers for the remaining five. He had 540 catches for 9,080 yards and 57 touchdowns overall. Jackson last played in the NFL in 2016.
