A 21-year-old Ossining High School graduate died after being stabbed during an altercation.
Greg Jackson, Jr. was stabbed on Monday, Jan. 28 during an incident on James Street in Ossining. He was transported to Westchester Medical Center and died on Friday, Feb. 1. Details of the stabbing and altercation that preceded it have not been released, but his mother, Lisa Jackson, told News 12 that “everyone knows who did it.”
“My best friend died at the hands of a dispute that went to a level of no return. Nothing prepares one to lay your brother to rest, but that story is for another day. Gregory Jackson aka ‘Greg/G-money’ was one of the warmest human beings any person could ever talk to and be fortunate enough to develop a close relationship with,” the page states. “He was filled with empathy, compassion, and a love and loyalty that was unmatched. Gregory could fly. But that was never enough for him — he wanted us all to fly with him.”
Following his death, Ossining Schools Superintendent Ray Sanchez released a letter to the community. He said that the district will have counseling support available to any students and staff who are impacted.
“The loss of human life is difficult and challenging. It can generate high levels of anxiety and distress. If you feel that your children are having difficulty, we encourage you to discuss their thoughts and feelings to help them through their concerns,” he wrote. “This is a difficult time for our community, but I am confident we will lean on each other as we work through this time.”
