Jackson Wayne Sorensen returned to his Father in Heaven on Wednesday, September 8th 2021, at the age of 4 years old, following a rare Condition called Lemierre syndrome that was sudden.
Jackson was born in Riverton, Utah on June 6th, 2017 to Christian Hans Sorensen and Meaghan Klenay Cook Sorensen.
Jackson was a very energetic fun loving little guy, and was always happy and full of life.
He always wanted to be outside riding his bike and playing with friends. He loved playing with his brothers, but his big brother Austin was his best friend. They always were together either making believe, playing Legos, or playing Xbox together. Jackson was excited to be a big brother as well, and was so sweet and gentle with his little brother Hudson, but would also show Hudson how to be rough and tough, which has rubbed off on Hudson. Hudson loved Jackson, and would often follow him around during the day to play and get hugs from his brother. Jackson also loved playing Xbox with his dad and could outplay him on most days. Jackson loved sports and was excited to try everything. He did tball in the spring, and enjoyed it so much he could have played all year. He was so excited to start soccer this fall, and loved watching Austin at games. Jackson loved being with mom doing all kinds of fun things. He loved his home made smoothies, the countless crafts, silly games and more. He loved helping his mom or dad with things either it be chores around the house, or helping dad fix things in the garage. He loved playing with his dad, either playing Legos, or running around the yard and making up games. Jackson was so loved by his family and everyone around him. He had such an infectious personality and laugh, and could make anyone smile. He loved going to church on Sunday and was so excited to learn about Jesus and Heavenly Father and be in Sunbeams. We are comforted knowing that we will be able to be with him again in heaven, because we are sealed as a family for eternity.
Jackson would often say he wanted to be Spiderman or some type of superhero when he grew up, and even though he didn’t get the chance to, he was a super hero in the end in donating his organs to help others. He loved to snuggle with mom and dad, and gave the best hugs, that would often take your breath away because of the force he would put into them. Jackson loved his family, extended family, and friends. Jackson has touched so many lives, and will be dearly missed by everyone, but will have a special place in our hearts. We are comforted in knowing he’s not far and will continue to watch over us.
Jackson will be remembered by his parents Christian, and Meaghan Sorensen, his older brother Austin, younger brother Hudson; grandparents David and Tamra Sorensen; Terri Cook; his aunts and uncles; Sarah Sorensen, Kathryn Sorensen, Maranda Sorensen Renouard (Dallin), Travis Sorensen, Keirra Cook Evans (Matthew), Michael Cook (Jessica), Jordan Cook (Shelbi).

Jackson is a sweet boy who touched my heart. I feel so privileged to be one of the physicians who cared for him. The love surrounding Jackson in the hospital was so palpable and truly special. Jackson was able to provide the incredible gift of organ donation and I truly believe that he is the super hero he wanted to be! I hope for strength and peace for Jackson's family during this unthinkable time. May Jackson's memory be a beautiful blessing.
Christian and Meaghan,
My heart goes out to you both and your beautiful family. Meaghan, you are a wonderful mother, and so very blessed. Jackson has his great Aunt Nelda, Uncle Bob, and Mikey, to love him and watch over him now. I see Jackson has your beautiful smile and cheeks; you were always a strong willed child and I have this wonderful memory of you at Grandpa Harwoods house where you were mad at your brother…… your eyes were hard set and your stance was defiant with your arms crossed. A kindred soul I would say…..I love your strength and know that you will get through this difficult time. I’m sending you all my love and strength from Idaho. I so wish I could be there but I know you have a large family who loves you and will guide you through. I love you dearly my cousin.
What a beautiful remembrance of your little boy. I felt the love you had for him, and the life and joy that Jackson carried with him though I never met him. I hope I can hold mine a little tighter and be a little more patient to honor your incredibly difficult journey.
