On Friday, Jan. 19, the team traveled to Memphis, Tenn., Jackson’s hometown, for the funeral. At the family’s request, they brought his cremated remains with them, making one last bus trip with their former teammate. The Commercial Appeal in Memphis published a story about Jackson Roberts and what he had meant to the team.
