Alabama’s Waymond Jackson knows of loss, life through family

For Waymond Jackson Jr. and his family, July 13 was always a sad anniversary.

July 13, 1985, was the date his father, Leondras Waymond Jackson Sr., died in a motel swimming pool.

For 34 years, Jackson and his mother and sister saw the date pass and it reminded them of loss. Now, the date celebrates new life and legacy.

That’s because Jackson’s daughter, Kai, was born on July 13, 2020.

Waymond Jackson is CEO of Apple initiative ED Farm in Birmingham. He and his family tell us what his daughter being born on that date means to them.
