U.S. Softball Player
“All you can control is your attitude and effort, let everything else be.” That’s the best advice Softball player Jazymyn Jackson says she’s ever received, and it’s served her sports career well. The San Jose, CA and Cal alumni will become a first time Olympian on the U.S. Women’s National Softball Team at the 2020 Tokyo games. At Cal, Jackson was among the 10 NCAA Division I softball players chosen for the National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) Freshman of the Year award, making her the first in the school’s history to be chosen. As a freshman, she leads the Bears in hits (74) and triples (4) and was a perfect 17-for-17 in stolen bases. After graduation she worked as an assistant softball coach at Howard University. Her career goals include becoming a general manager of a sports franchise one day.
