The authorities spoke with Jackson on February 12th, who had been staying at a hotel since January 11th. They then canceled the missing person report.
“My heart aches for the many loved ones Vincent Jackson leaves behind, from his wife and children to the Buccaneers nation that adored him,” Sheriff Chad Chronister said. “Mr. Jackson was a devoted man, who put his family and community above everything else. Football aside, he touched countless lives through his Jackson in Auction 83 Foundation. We shared a passion for supporting military families, and three years ago, Jackson was even made an honorary deputy by the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office to recognize his dedication to the community.
“He will be sorely missed by not only football fans across the country but also the people here in Hillsborough County, who reaped the benefits of his generous contributions.”
This is an active investigation. The authorities have said that there were no signs of trauma.
The Hillsborough County Medical Examiner will determine the cause of death.
