Jade's Story

Jade Lily Dixson was born on the 2nd January 2001 alongside her twin sister Georgia. She has two older brothers, Josh and Shane. Her parents Mark and Julie were kept very busy. Jade was a beautiful and caring girl who from a very young age showed an amazing ability to leave a lasting impression on everyone she met, with her infectious smile and a huge hug to go with it. Jade always went out of her way to look after anyone that needed help.

Jade was a very talented football player and was an integral part of convincing her school mates to join her local football club, The Woombye Snakes. She played alongside twin sister Georgia and it wasn’t long before they made their mark in Sunshine Coast Football. In 2018, Jade was selected to play in the U17 Women’s National Premier League for the Sunshine Coast Wanderers.Jades life was filled with an abundance of fun, lots of love, laughter, adventure and mischief.

She had an awesome life, supported with so much love from her amazing family, extended family and her many friends, who all loved her very dearly.Jade was a 17 year old student in her last year of high school. On the 27th March 2018, Jade was involved in a single vehicle accident in Dulong, where she was a passenger in a car that lost control and rolled into a tree driven by a 17 year old P plater. She died in the early hours of Wednesday 28th March on her way to hospital from multiple injuries. Family and friends, local sporting clubs, local schools and a tight knit community have been left devastated by the loss of Jade. A tragic waste of a beautiful girl’s life which was preventable.

Our Mission

The Jades Legacy Foundations belief and vision is one that incorporates a future where all drivers are better equipped for unsuspecting challenges and hazards that arise whilst on our roads and to reduce unnecessary fatalities.  The foundation will be lobbying the State and Federal Governments to change legislation.

Please support us in helping make changes.  Families are losing too many of our young children in senseless, tragic accidents that with driver education could be avoided.  If Jade was here she would be campaigning the loudest.

The Foundation will be organizing events throughout the year to raise much needed funds that will assist in the cost of lobbying the State and Federal Government and to keep Jades Legacy alive.  Donate today to help support Jade’s Legacy!
