Orphanage planned in honor of Coppell teen Jacob Logan

Posted: Updated:

The legacy of a Coppell football star that died last year in a cliff-jumping accident at Possum Kingdom Lake will live on with a planned orphanage.

Jacob Logan was a 17-year-old Coppell High School student. He was a standout wide receiver for the Coppell Cowboys.

But he lost his life in the tragic accident last October. He had been swimming with friends in Possum Kingdom Lake. Witnesses said he jumped off one of the cliffs into the water, surfaced briefly and then disappeared.

His friends and family members are trying to keep his memory alive by raising funds to build an orphanage in Zambia, Africa. It will be called Jacob's House.

On Thursday, Papa Johns will donate 21 percent – Jacob's football number – of the proceeds from all online orders using the promo code JACOB21 to the cause.

There will also be a 5K and fun run on Dec. 21 to raise money.
