Tarvaris Jackson, Former NFL Quarterback and Father of 3, Dies in Car Accident

“During 2 training camps I competed with Tarvaris Jackson for the starting spot with the @Vikings before Favre arrived both seasons,” he said on Twitter.

“For two guys fighting for the same job, we got along exceptionally well,” Rosenfels continued. “TJack loved his family and teammates, and they loved him back.”

Jackson was later signed by the Seahawks, and appeared in three games with the team in 2013. Led by Russell Wilson, the Seahawks would win the Super Bowl a year later with Jackson playing backup.

“TJack… you will be missed,” Wilson said in a tweet. “Praying for your family… Love you man.”

Pete Carroll, Jackson’s former coach on the Seahawks, called him a “beloved teammate, competitor, and Seahawk.”

“He will be deeply missed,” Carroll said. “So heartbroken by the news of his passing and sending our condolences to his family and friends. We love you forever.”
