Benefit Held for Stafone Jackson, Star Athlete and Swim Coach Who Drowned

ICHI Sushi on Mission Street will donate a percentage of dinner proceeds tonight to the family of Stafone Jackson, a 20-year-old graduate of Mission High School who tragically drowned while camping last month. 

According to news reports, Jackson died after swimming out to a island of rocks at the Union Valley Reservoir in North El Dorado. Jackson had volunteered as a swim coach with the Special Olympics while in high school.
Until his fatal accident, Jackson had truly beaten the odds: He grew up in the Potrero Hill housing projects while excelling in honors classes at Mission, which won him academic scholarships at UC Riverside.
