  • Jaxon Anthony Memorial Foundation

     The Jaxon Anthony Memorial Foundation was created to honor the memory of Jeffrey and Ashley Arnold’s son, Jaxon Anthony Arnold who was born and passed on July 9, 2012.  The foundation gives financial support to families suffering an unexpected infant loss or stillbirth by assisting with the infant burial costs at Skyview Memorial Gardens in Mansfield, Texas; where Jaxon Anthony was laid to rest.

    Annually, the foundation organizes a Clay Shooting Tournament to generate funds to assist with the foundation’s goals. The Second Annual Jaxon Anthony Memorial Clay Shooting Tournament is scheduled for July 13, 2013. Currently, the foundation is seeking a sponsorship and/or donations to ensure that the clay shooting tournament is successful. Any assistance you and/or your company can provide would be greatly appreciated.

    The First Annual Jaxon Anthony Memorial Clay Shooting Tournament, held August 25, 2012, generated enough funds to cover the cost of one infant burial. The family of Logan Christopher Derwin was the first recipient of the Jaxon Anthony Memorial Foundation. The foundation hopes to cover the cost of at least four infant funerals in 2013.  We greatly appreciate any support you might be able to offer. If you have any questions regarding the goals of our foundation, please contact us.

    Sincerely, The Jaxon Anthony Memorial Foundation
