DeSean Jackson has made some outstanding plays as a wide receiver and punt returner for the Philadelphia Eagles. Jackson has been recognized for his talents with a trip to the Pro Bowl.
However, he was honored for his work off the field recently by Philadelphia City Councilman Curtis Jones Jr., who saluted Jackson for his campaign in raising awareness and his battle against pancreatic cancer.
Jackson and his mother, Gayle Jackson, started the DeSean Jackson Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer. In 2009, DeSean’s father, Bill, died from pancreatic cancer.
