Social Media Reacts To The Passing of Former NFL WR Vincent JacksonSteve Balestrieri - PatsFans.com

On Monday, former NFL wide receiver Vincent Jackson was found deceased in a Tampa Bay area hotel room according to the Hillsborough County (FL) Sheriff’s department, he was 38 years old.

According to an ESPN report, “Jackson was found at approximately 11:30 a.m. ET on Monday at the Homewood Suites in Brandon, Florida. Police said there were no apparent signs of trauma, and the Hillsborough County Medical Examiner’s Office will determine the cause of death”.

According to the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s department, Jackson’s family initially reported him missing this past Wednesday. Deputies tracked him down to the hotel two days later, spoke with him and canceled the missing persons case.

“My heart aches for the many loved ones Vincent Jackson leaves behind, from his wife and children to the Buccaneers nation that adored him,” Sheriff Chad Chronister said in a statement. “Mr. Jackson was a devoted man who put his family and community above everything else.

“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,” Chronister continued.

Jackson played 12 seasons in the NFL, seven with the San Diego Chargers (2005-2011) and Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2012-2016), earning three Pro Bowl selections over that span.

As word of his passing circulated around the NFL, Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman and former Patriot’s safety Rodney Harrison each shared their reaction over Twitter.

The Chargers and Buccaneers each released the following statements regarding Jackson’s death.
