Youth Education Scholarships

The Greg “Jocko” Jackson Foundation

Fundraising Campaign – Youth Education Scholarships

Greg Jackson is a Brownsville legend.  Affectionately known to all as “Jocko” and the “Mayor of Brownsville”.  Jocko worked tirelessly to make change, until his untimely death in 2012.   Jocko coined the phrase, “Hope Is Inside”, because he believed in the people. 

His family is committed to continuing the work, through the establishment of the Greg “Jocko” Jackson Foundation.  The Foundation will provide scholarships to children in need, community-based resources with a focus on mental health support, after-school services, sports services and referral services for residents of the East Brooklyn New York Section (Ocean-Hill/Brownsville, East New York, Bushwick, Bed-Stuy, Crown Heights, East Flatbush & Canarsie).
