I didn’t know Travis well, but many of my friends did and he was an important part of DC. I’m sure his one-year-old and wife could use all the support they can get in the face of this tragedy.”
“As many of you know, Travis Jackson, father, husband, musician, and founder of DC’s Windian Records, was killed in a work accident last night off of Suitland Parkway in DC; he leaves behind his wife Ashley and their 1-year old son, Link (named for Link Wray, as he’d be happy to tell you!)
Many of you know Travis from his years as the drummer in the Points, or maybe he helped book your band in DC as he often did, in return for nothing but the friends it created. Most of you have probably ordered a record or three from Windian Records, the label that he ran almost single-handedly for three years that earned accolades and fought to keep DC in the spotlight.
There has been an awesome outpouring of support from friends and fans alike, and the DC media has offering excellent support as well. That is why Windian Records is setting up this fund while Travis’ passing is fresh in everyone’s memory; while none of us can know what his wife Ashley and his son Link are going through, we can reach out to help through this tough time.
Every dollar helps and will Keep Travis’ legacy alive. The reason he did what he did was because he cared deeply about others, so your support shows that you do the same.”
