Colts will establish memorial scholarship for Edwin Jackson

Posted: Updated:

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay is donating $25,000 to establish the Edwin Jackson Memorial Scholarship in memory of the former linebacker who was killed in a traffic accident Feb. 4.

Irsay issued a statement Monday calling Jackson a "wonderful young man" who is already missed. Irsay says he wants to honor Jackson's memory, determination, work ethic and character and that he will work with Jackson's family to establish guidelines for a scholarship that will be awarded annually.

Irsay again sent condolences to the family of Jeffrey Monroe, Jackson's Uber driver, who also was killed in the accident. Irsay has offered to pay for the funerals of both men.

Donations to the scholarship fund can be made online at www.colts.com/memorial or by mail at the Edwin Jackson Memorial Scholarship, c/o Indianapolis Colts Foundation, P.O. Box 535000, Indianapolis, IN 46253.
