CofC golfer killed in early morning crash

The College of Charleston is mourning the loss of one of their student-athletes.

On November 29, 2015,  shortly before 1:00 a.m., the Isle of Palms Police Department requested assistance from the Charleston County Sheriff’s Office in investigating a single car fatality that occurred in their jurisdiction.

According to preliminary reports, Jackson Deval Moore, was driving a 2010 BMW on Back Bay Drive at Dune Ridge on Isle of Palms when his vehicle departed from the roadway and struck a tree.

Moore was pronounced dead at the scene.

The only passenger in the vehicle was transported to the Medical University of South Carolina where he was later released shortly thereafter.

Moore wasn’t wearing his seat-belt at the time of this accident.

The Charleston County Sheriff’s Department is currently investigating.

The College of Charleston released a statement remembering Jackson Moore:

College of Charleston Athletics mourns the loss of men’s golf student-athlete Jackson Moore, who passed away early Sunday morning.

Moore, 21, a senior from Isle of Palms, S.C., was in his fourth season with the two-time defending Colonial Athletic Association-champion Cougars. Last season, he earned his first career start at The Invitational at The Ocean Course hosted by CofC on Kiawah Island, S.C. Overall, Moore played in 13 career tournaments and his best finish was tied for 13th twice in 2013-14.

“This is a sad day for our program,” CofC Head Coach Mark McEntire said. “We lost a great friend and teammate in Jackson. He will be greatly missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.”

A business administration major at The College, Moore was a top junior golfer in the state of South Carolina, while attending Wando High School. He is survived by his parents, Richard and Polly Moore.
