A Little Extra Help for J.J. Jackson

In 2016, Shelf Life interviewed J.J. Jackson about his experience growing up in the Central District. As far as we can tell, J.J. has been bringing people joy and feeding the community as long as he has been on this earth. Now, he needs his community to give back. He has been diagnosed with Prostate, Bone, and Lung Cancer, and some of his expenses won't be covered. Please listen to his stories, and then help if you can.
