Update from 1/17/14, From Ashley Jackson, Travis' Wife:

"It is with a heavy heart and great sadness that I write this. My husband Travis passed away yesterday, for those who do not already know, though I think most do. He was at work when he was struck by a car. That is all I know, I am trying to avoid the details.


I am devastated by this loss to our family. My heart is broken for Travis and for our son Lincoln. Travis loved him so much. He was his pride and joy, and becoming a father meant the world to him. I intend to do my best to raise Link the way I know Travis would have wanted. He will always have a drum set. We will watch the Bills games together. He will know who his father was.

Travis was a sweet man with a good heart and he loved his family. He loved music. He loved rock and roll. Windian was his life, and his passion. He built it from nothing. It was a family business, and I have felt the support of the Windian family.

I don’t know how to express how grateful I am for the outpouring of love we have received. I haven’t yet read all the messages and posts, but I will, and we are blessed for all of them. I wish he could see how many people loved him. I think he can." 

Travis' Fundrazr: 

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.
