Coast Guard Foundation announces the ME3 Jackson P. Haughey Endowment

by Coast Guard Foundation 28 Sep 22:59 PDT

The Coast Guard Foundation, a non-profit organization committed to strengthening the Coast Guard community and service by supporting members and families, announced today the establishment of the ME3 Jackson P. Haughey Endowment. The Endowment honors the memory of Jackson Haughey and will provide funding for programs to help U.S. Coast Guard members when they are most in need.

Born in Flagstaff, Arizona, Haughey was a 2016 graduate of Coconino High School. After joining the Coast Guard, he served on Cutter Henry Blake. He then attended the Maritime Law Enforcement Academy and became a maritime enforcement specialist, serving in Bangor, Washington. Haughey died by suicide January 1, 2020.

Haughey had a passion for many things, including Star Wars, hockey, Lake Powell, his dog Samantha, as well as his friends and family. He loved the Coast Guard and his fellow Coast Guard members. Everyone who met him, no matter how small of an interaction, will always remember him as a loving son, brother, husband, shipmate and friend.

The ME3 Jackson P. Haughey Endowment will carry his spirit, passion and love into the future by funding Coast Guard counseling, mental resiliency and suicide prevention programs. In this way Haughey, who chose to be a lifesaver in the U.S. Coast Guard, will save others. This perpetual source of funds will provide needed assistance for Coast Guard members who serve our communities and Nation.

"Those serving in the Coast Guard sometimes face stresses few other professions may endure," said Susan Ludwig, president, Coast Guard Foundation. "These brave men and women who are called upon to save the lives of those in their communities, sometimes need assistance themselves. The ME3 Jackson P. Haughey Endowment is designed to help those Coast Guard members when they need it the most."
