“Eight-year-old Jackson Sparks, along with his 12-year-old brother, were both seriously hurt after a driver plowed through the Christmas parade Sunday, Nov. 21,” a local CBS affiliate reported. “Both boys were taken to Children’s Wisconsin for treatment.”
“According to the GoFundMe page, Jackson underwent brain surgery following the incident,” CBS noted. “Tuesday, Nov. 23, an update said Jackson succumbed to his injuries and passed away.”
The family issued a statement on the passing of little Jackson Sparks:
“Please know that they appreciate your continued prayers and tremendous outpouring of support for their family. They do however ask for privacy at this time to allow Tucker to continue to heal physically and their family to heal and mourn the tremendous loss of their sweet little boy who is now under the care of Jesus.”
“Five other people were killed during the parade tragedy, ranging in age from 52-81,” CBS noted. “Jackson will be the youngest victim added to the list — bringing the total to six.”
