SOUTHERN UNIVERSITY HONORS A LEGEND IN MAMA JAG!

Good Morning,….God is good all the time. Okay, Let’s get to it. As Southern University prepares to battle Alcorn State this weekend, the Jaguar Nation will also honor one of it’s brightest stars and favorite fan of the past. JEWEL JEFFERSON , affectionately known MAMA JAG in all SWAC circles. Jefferson, a native of Columbia , Miss moved to Baton Rouge and worked odd jobs before landing at Southern University in it’s food service department in the 60’s. Jefferson took a liking to all students especially the athletic teams. She was promoted as head dietician of the athletic dining hall in the early 70’s and reamined a staple in the JAGUAR NATION heart. Always caring for students first whether they were athletes or not, a hot meal was always nearby. MAMA JAG wowed fans and opposing fans alike with her love for Southern as well as her love for all SWAC schools. Jefferson recieved many awards during her time at Southern as well as her yeoman efforts for all SWAC programs. She treated all students and opposing students with respect. She even feed opposing teams when they traveled to Southern. The U.S Congress awarded her for her efforts in supporting HBCU’S educational fund. Many celebrities such as Muhammad Ali was always a fixture when he visited Baton Rouge. MAMA JAG retired from Southern in the late 90’s as one of Southern’s brightest stars. She was inducted into the school’s Hall of Fame in 2003. Mama Jag past in 2005. As her grandson, I have continued her legacy in helping students meet their goal of attending college. I have also nominated her for enshinement into the La. Sports Hall of Fame in 2013 and will again in 2014 until she get’s he due. The State of Louisiana should feel appreciative in having her be apart of such great organization. Jefferson is well missed but Southern University still shines in her heart…….Thanks SU………Realsportsrealtalk….
