About The Foundation

Play Like Jackson is a non-profit organization based in Fenton, Michigan. Dedicated to the life and legacy of Jackson Barry Gangwer (6/20/00 - 4/10/13), Play Like Jackson is focused on reaching out to families with children who are coping with loss or dealing with other difficult issues to find out if and how we can help — and then do so.

Helping Kids in Our Community

Overcoming adversities, obstacles and setbacks is challenging for all of us, but it is even more difficult for children who simply aren't yet equipped to understand or deal with sadness, emotional pain or disappointment. Play Like Jackson's mission is to reach out to those kids to see if and how we can make things a little bit better — even if for a little while.
