This article was last updated by on

Tyree Jackson’s parents Susan, and Fluarry Jackson, raised three kids who have all dipped their toes in the athletic world. Jackson has two older siblings, Fluarry Jr, and McKenzie VanPatten. 

After going undrafted in 2019, Tyree was selected by the Buffalo Bills but was later waived. Jackson went on to join the XFL team, DC Defenders, in 2019 but returned to NFL in 2021 with Philadelphia Eagles.

During his time with the Eagles, Tyree hasn’t been able to make much impact. The Jalen Hurts-led team made it to the Super Bowl LVII without Jackson but lost against Patrick Mahomes‘ Kansas City Chiefs. 

Earlier this year, in April, the Eagles retained Jackson after he signed his exclusive rights tender. With good showcasing in the ongoing training camp, Tyree might be able to claw back into the Eagles’ team.

In an interview with ESPN, Susan admitted she didn’t want her son to join NFL but work on his master’s degree. But the tight end announced he was heading to the draft.

Since his high school days, Tyree’s parents hadn’t missed any of his games. But in 2013, mid-way through the season, Fluarry Jackson suffered a back injury while at work as a maintenance man. 

He was hospitalized for six weeks and missed the game where Tyree’s team, Mona Shores, clinched a state playoff berth. His coach, Matt Koziak, said it was a tough time for Tyree, who shared a strong bond with his father. 

Susan Jackson graduated from Grand Valley State University and works as a schedule coordinator at Laketown Family Dental. On her Facebook handle, Susan Sinke-Jackson has shared several family photos, including Tyrees’ recent wedding to Cailin on June 30, 2023.
