22 Dec Baton Rouge Christmas Project
The Montrell Lyle Jackson Foundation’ s main goal is to bridge the gap between law enforcement and the community. On Sunday, July 17, 2016, while protecting and serving the citizens of the city he loved, Cpl. Montrell Lyle Jackson was ambushed and killed along with two other officers. Montrell worked for Baton Rouge Police Department for ten years and loved his job!
In honor of her husband’s life and legacy, Trenisha founded the Montrell L.Y.L.E. Jackson Foundation, which main goal and purpose is bridging the gap between law enforcement and the community, and giving back to the community. Throughout the year, Mrs. Jackson host several outreach activities and fundraisers to continue the legacy of her husband. The foundation also provides mentoring to the youth and scholarships for graduating high school seniors.
