Jaguars offensive line coach provides special day for family
Jaguars offensive line coach Andy Heck and his wife, Jennifer, hosted Jeff Holdsworth and his family today at EverBank Field in conjunction with the Memories for Kids Foundation (www.memoriesforkids.org). The mission of the Foundation is to create lifelong memories for children of parents with terminal cancer.
Holdsworth, a firefighter, has been battling melanoma since his diagnosis in 2008 and the cancer has continued to progress. He was recently diagnosed with Stage IV Metastatic Melanoma. He and his wife, Cassie, have four children and reside in Omaha, Nebraska. The children are Jacob (13), Paige (11), Ryan (9) and Drew (7).
The Hecks provided six club seats and pregame field passes to the family. Following the game, the family received a private tour of the stadium from Andy Heck and also a private meeting with Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew, quarterback Blaine Gabbert, tight end Zach Potter and center Brad Meester.
