Jason Davis - December 2, 1974 to October 30, 1994

Jason began playing soccer with Pearl Youth Soccer League during its first year of inception in 1980. Jason attended Pearl Schools from elementary through high school until graduation in 1993. While attending Pearl Schools, he played for the Pearl Jr. High and High School soccer teams from 1986 - 1993. After graduation, he attended The University of Mississippi and played on their first soccer team. Jason was a freshman at Ole Miss when he was diagnosed with Squamous Cell Carcinoma in head and neck. He was able to complete the soccer season except the tournament games at the end of the season.

Jason received his cancer treatments at M.D. Anderson Hospital in Houston, Tx. Upon completing his treatments Jason returned to Ole Miss in the Fall of 1994. He attempted to practice with the soccer team but realized he was not physically able. Instead, Jason went to the City of Oxford and became a coach for a U12 team.

While Jason was receiving cancer treatments at M.D. Anderson, the Pearl Youth Soccer League organized a tournament to raise money to help with Jason's expenses. After Jason passed away, Pearl Youth Soccer League asked if they could continue the tournament in Jason's name (Jason Davis Memorial "Kick Cancer Classic") to help others fighting cancer. In the early years the money was given to the American Cancer Society. In recent years the proceeds from the tournament go to benefit other cancer victims in Rankin County.
