Jackson earned his Angel Wings on Wednesday, June 20, 2007, at 11:20 am.
Thank you for all of your love, support, messages, prayers and help during this time, and through all of Jackson's journey.

This site will remain for as long as Jackson's parents want it to. There might still be people out there who haven't read Jackson's story, and Jackson had so much to teach everyone. Be sure to check back for some updates, and new journal entries.  I have kept the bottom of this page original, from when I first set up the web site shortly after Jackson was born.  I have added pages for links to other web sites of CHD Fighters and Angels, be sure to check back for the links.  I have also created a memorial page for Jackson, for people to leave tributes and memories, or light a candle for Jackson.  You can find that page here: http://jackson-muhowski.memory-of.com/about.aspx
 Jackson John was born on Tuesday, September 12, 2006, around 9:30 am, to Jacob, Sara, and big sister Molly. He weighed 6 lbs and 8 ozs and was 18" long. Jackson was born with a heart defect called Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome (click to read about HLHS). Jackson's first open-heart surgery was on Tuesday, September 19, at 1 week old, and his second was on December 13, at 3 months old.  He went home for the first time on January 4, 2007, but has made a couple return trips to the hospital.
My name is Jessica, and I am Jacob's oldest cousin.  I wanted to do something to help, not necessarily with paying for the surgeries and hospital stays (he spent his first 4 months in the hospital), but with the little things. My cousin, Jacob, his wife, Sara, and their 5 year old daughter Molly, will of course want to spend as much time as possible with Jackson, and I'm hoping to be able to help them by taking away some worries so they can focus their attention on their son.
Even since before he was born, Jackson has had a lot of people praying for him and following his story!  I will try and keep this site updated at least as often as I get updates from Jake and Sara, so check back often!  Use the Journal page above for Jackson's journal entries.
Use the headings at the top of the page to navigate through the site and check out everything.  I'm open to suggestions so if you have any, just email me!
Jackson's family and friends have decided to help out Jake and Sara by doing some fundraisers.  The money raised has been and will be used for anything they need.  Having the added bills in addition to Sara staying at home with Jackson, we feel that they can use the money for anything they want!  As I saw it phrased on another web site, "...to aid in the medical and living expenses."  Please visit the Fundraising page above to read about the progress and help out if you would like.  Every little bit is greatly appreciated!!  You can also visit Jackson's Guestbook and share your thoughts, messages and prayers with Jackson's family.  Check out the Photos page for links to Jackson's photo albums and videos!

Jackson's web site is a part of the HLHS Net Ring.  If you are visiting
from another site in the ring, thank you for taking the time to read
Jackson's story!  For Jackson's friends and family, you can visit other
sites in the ring by clicking on the links below.  Lots of great stories,
some happy, some sad, but that is the life with a congenital heart
defect.  Tons of strength on both sides of the spectrum though, and
I think it is wonderful that all of these families have chosen to share
their stories, to help others in similar situations, to let them know
that they are definitely not alone.
This site is a member of the
Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome
Net Ring .
