Jacksen Oscar Ashton





Saturday February 2, 2008 my nephew Jacksen was in a car accident and we lost him. He was 16 years old, 17 in April. He is the oldest grandchild and carried lots of responsibility setting a good example and just being a great kid. He loves chips and salsa, movies, music, and carrying around his baby nephews and neices. He was always asking, "is Beck was in a good mood and can I hold him?" Right now it's still not real. Even as we all hang out in silence trying to figure out what happened. It seems like he's just away at a camp or hanging out with friends and at any moment he will walk in followed by a few teenage boys digging around in the pantry for chips and salsa and asking me if I've seen the lastest Spiderman and what I thought of it. I remember when he and I went to see Star Wars III at the midnight showing with his little brother Taryn and some other friends of his. He was so patient with me and my silly questions about that movie and so understanding even if I didn't like a movie that he thought was great, but he would try to convince me otherwise. So here's to my nephew Jacksen; I'm gonna miss you as much as you would miss chips and salsa. Love you buddy.

I was so sorry to hear about your nephew, and it broke my heart to see you sitting in the back of church yesterday, looking a little lost. I agree with Jenica - call if you need anything. Remember, as President Hinckley said, Things will get better.
Love ya!

That was such a lovely post about your nephew. That's so great that you have so many pics of him with Beck, so that he'll always know about his oldest cousin. We'll continue to keep your whole family in our thoughts and prayers.

I was a classmate of Jacksens. He was in the same Band as me and worked hard to keep my spirits up when i would get discouraged conducting at the games. I loved him very much and so did everyone else in the music department. He was a really great guy and more than anything a great friend. I love your whole family very much and continue to work hard in memory of him.

He was my hero in many ways and I always envied him for being so talented. You will all still be in my prayers and thought the whole will never be filled, things will get better one day. His spirit will always live on in each and everyone of us.

With all the love in the world. My hopes and prayers go out to you.

Yours Truly,
Kaela W.
