WAUKESHA, Wis. — A social media effort to wear jerseys in honor of the youngest victim of the Waukesha Christmas parade tragedy returns on Saturday, Dec. 3.
"Jerseys for Jackson" is a movement that began last year in honor of 8-year-old Jackson Sparks, one of six people killed during the 2021 Waukesha Christmas parade. The movement, calling for students and staff to wear baseball jerseys to school and work, quickly snowballed. Jackson was an avid baseball fan and played with the Waukesha Blazers Baseball Club.
The Jackson Sparks Foundation said it is also entertaining the idea of designing and selling a foundation jersey.
The 2022 Waukesha Christmas Parade is set to begin at 4 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 4.
TMJ4 News is proud to be the television sponsor of the parade. We will stream the parade in its entirety, both on-air and online.
