Jaxon was on a mission. He was training to become a U.S. Coast Guard Rescue Swimmer. He'd graduated from high school and had just submitted his paperwork for screening and bootcamp. He was a lifeguard and swim instructor at the Margaret Maddox YMCA. He found real community with the people he worked with and the members who walked through the doors each day. We are so grateful for his YMCA family.

In the spirit of all that Jaxon represented, the Jaxon Lawrence Leasure Memorial Scholarship Fund was established to provide swim lessons and lifeguard training to the youth of Nashville.
