“I Couldn’t Go to Sleep Knowing that a Whole Family Wouldn’t be Able to Eat that Night and I’m Over Here Buying Things for My TV”

In August 2014, Stetson University Hatters defensive end Trezdun Jackson did a good deed at a Walmart in DeLand, Florida. A woman with five children tried to pay for her purchases, but her payment was declined. She began to cry, and Mr. Jackson gave the cashier $100 of his own money and then left. The woman found out his name later and sent an email to the Stetson University Athletic Department, in which she wrote, in part, “I was blessed with the most generous act of kindness my soul has ever witnessed. Please relay this message to the young man and let him know that his help will never be forgotten and we are more than extremely grateful for the money he gave us. Thank God for people like him.” Mr. Jackson said, “It’s just the right thing to do. I couldn’t go to sleep knowing that a whole family wouldn’t be able to eat that night and I’m over here buying things for my TV. It’s just not right.” Stetson University Head Football Coach Roger Hughes said that Mr. Jackson’s actions are “a great example of how men should treat women and how we all should treat each other.”
