On December 12, 1988 in Long Beach, California, William Jackson and Diana Gaines were blessed with Damian Thomas Jackson. Damian resided in Long Beach, CA. with his mother and stepfather, Chris Taylor, where he had four sisters; Crystal, Creshawna, Kenne and Africa and two brothers; Robert and Terrence.
Damian was very funny and adventurous. He lived life to the fullest from a very young boy. While living with his Mom, Damian attended Lincoln Elementary School and soon after moved to Las Vegas with his Father. After moving to Las Vegas, at the age of nine, he attended Paradise Elementary school, then he attended Cannon Middle school, and finally he attended Bonanza High school. While in high school, Damian loved sports. He played football for Bonanza but had a very big interest in Mixed Martial Arts. Though he loved working, he still wanted to pursue a career in the MMA World. As soon as he started, he became very good at it. He trained hard then he started fighting in the “Tuff-N-Nuff” promoted fights. Damian also worked at the Sands-Expo with CTS Electric, then years later he started working at the “D” Hotel & Casino. He also kept you laughing and would give you some uplifting words if you felt down. He was a very good son, that always made me proud to be his father. At any family gathering, he was fun to be around.
Damian leaves behind, to love and cherish his life precious memories, his father; William T. Jackson, his mother; Diana Taylor, his brothers; William Jackson III, Austin and Justin Jackson; four sisters, two aunts, two uncles, and a host of cousins, relatives and friends.
We Love you Damian.
