Jackson Reed Wilhite

July 21, 1999 — January 30, 2019

Jackson Reed Wilhite of Norman was born to Joe and Melinda Wilhite on July 21, 1999 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. He suffered an unrecoverable seizure and was taken far too soon on January 29th, 2019.

In 6th grade, Jackson started playing football at Whittier Middle School where he began specializing as a kicker. From 9th-12th grade, he played for Norman North High School, being invited to also play with the Varsity team beginning in 9th grade. After graduating in May of 2018, Jackson accepted a full-ride scholarship and earned the honor of the starting kicking position, as a freshman, for Southwestern Oklahoma State University. He made a positive impact on the team immediately with his infectious smile and great work ethic. Jackson was very active in Young Life in high school and later with his fraternity, Tau Kappa Epsilon (TKE).

Jackson gave his life to Christ as a small child. His love for Jesus was shown in the way he treated others and lived. He had a way of lighting up the room and knew how to make each person feel special in their own way. Jackson’s positive outlook on life was a gift and he lived life to the fullest.

Jackson was preceded in death by his grandfather, Ron Wilhite, who passed in November of 2010.

Jackson is survived by: parents Joe and Melinda Wilhite of Norman; sisters, Sarah Wilhite of Norman, Taylor Grinstead and husband, Wesley, and nephew, Wyatt, of Norman; grandparents Virginia Wilhite of Norman, Jack and Gaye Nievar of Oklahoma City; uncles, Brian Nievar and wife Jamie of Norman, Clint Nievar and wife Sharie of Branson, Missouri; aunts, Stephanie Nievar of Moore, Jana Cheap and husband Mike of Edmond; and a host of extended family and friends.
