Meet our 2024 ride Ambassador



Jackson was born a fighter as he was born 4 months early at 1lb 4oz and spent 4 months in the UofU NICU. He was on oxygen until around his first birthday.

Jackson loves everything outdoors from camping to SXS to construction vehicles, which are his favorite. He is full of energy and always on the go. He loves to play hard with everyone he meets!

On May 16, 2023 Jackson was diagnosed with Wilms Tumor, which is cancer in the kidneys. He immediately started chemotherapy and ended treatments in December of 2023. He underwent several surgeries and had one of his kidneys removed. He also underwent emergency surgery to repair scar tissue that was blocking his small intestine as a result of his kidney surgery. It was a long 7 months of treatment, but he was able to ring the bell on December 19, 2023.

His wish is to go to Hawaii to relax and play with his dump trucks in the sand and Make A Wish was able to make this come true! He will be going in July of this year.
