Carter, Amaya, and Dominick; Vincent Jackson’s Children
Carter, Amaya, and Dominick are the three young children of Vincent Jackson, an American football wide receiver who played for 12 seasons in the National Football League. He played college football at Northern Colorado, and was drafted by the San Diego Chargers in the second round of the 2005 NFL Draft. He also played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. On February 15, 2021, Jackson was found dead in a room at Homewood Suites in Brandon, Florida; he was 38.
Carter, Amaya, and Dominick’s mom is Lindsey VanDeweghe, a Colorado native. Jackson proposed to his wife while accepting the honor of being inducted to the UNC Athletic Hall of Fame in 2011. The three-time Pro Bowler stepped on stage and said to VanDeweghe, “I love you. I will always love you. I want to start a family with you. I want to spend the rest of my days with you. You are my soulmate. Will you marry me?”
Their parents tied the knot on July 16, 2011. They welcomed three children together — Carter, Amaya, and Dominick. After 12 seasons in the NFL, Jackson officially retired in 2018 and made South Tampa his permanent home.
Jackson and his wife resided in a $3.5 million mansion located in the Palma Ceia Golf and Country Club. The massive home included a 4-car garage, wet bar, and a mother-in-law suite as per the Journalistate.

On February 10, Jackson’s family reported him as missing, the sheriff’s office reported, and an investigation was launched the next day. On February 12, HSCO located the former NFL star at the Homewood Suites, assessed his well-being, and subsequently canceled the missing person’s case.
