Kyle Martin Jackson, 31, was born on August 24, 1989 and died on Monday, May 3, 2021 in Lafourche Parish. A native and resident of Baton Rouge, Kyle was a 2007 graduate of Catholic High School and a 2011 graduate of LSU, earning his degree in International Studies.

During his coaching career, Catholic High's tennis teams won eight regional titles and four Division 1 state titles and one runner-up finish.

Kyle was one of the finest young men that my wife and I had the pleasure of meeting and calling a friend and neighbor. He will be truly missed and our prayers not only go out to Kyle, but to his lovely wife, Emily, and all those who loved him.
