Jackson Bezzant is a typical primary school student. He is an upbeat young man who enjoys playing outside, fishing, and spending time with his family.

Jackson only differs from other kids in that he was born with Treacher Collins syndrome, an uncommon illness. It has an impact on how facial tissue and bone growth develop.

Jackson had surgery to reconstruct his eye socket, leaving him almost completely deaf.

He now has to deal with constant bullying at school from kids and even some adults.

When his father in Idaho discovered that his son had been called a “monster” at school, he felt “destroyed.”


After that, the upset father ultimately decided that enough was enough and set out to teach his boy’s tormentors a lesson.

Jackson’s dad Dan has witnessed this bullying time and again.

He recalls walking down the street with his son and hearing a woman pass by them before saying, “Did you see that little boy’s face?”

Any parent would have a hard time not stepping in when they see their child being bullied, but Dan generally managed to keep his cool and put all his focus into keeping his son happy and grounded.

But recently, one incident at school meant that Dan couldn’t keep quiet any longer.

Jackson Bezzant was enjoying breakfast in the school cafeteria when three bigger boys came over.

They began making fun of the youngster, calling him “ugly” and “a monster.” Before a teacher’s aide saw and intervened to stop the brutal suffering before it got worse, Jackson sat there, powerless, being bullied.

When Dan heard the tale, he could not control his tears, but the situation was far from ending.

Although Jackson was undoubtedly bullied before, Dan was determined to make this instance the last.

Dan was about to deliver the word that enough was enough to all of his son’s abusers.

He posted an emotional message on Facebook denouncing the bullies after growing tired of constantly witnessing his young son being harassed, mocked and humiliated.

“My heart is in pieces right now, and my soul feels like it’s ripping from my chest,” Dan began, according to People Magazine.

Jackson, my son, is a gorgeous young man who has to put up with a bombardment of insults and ignorance that is unlike anything I’ve ever seen. At school, his classmates refer to him as freaky, ugly, and a monster. At just under eight years old, he discusses suicide!

According to him, he is hated by everyone and has no friends. Children shove him and throw pebbles at him while screaming these heinous comments. Please think about what you would do if this were your child for a moment. Spend some time explaining special needs to your kids. Tell them to show love and compassion towards one another.

The name of his illness is Treacher Collins. Look it up, perhaps. According to Dan Wrote, the future holds numerous more unpleasant surgeries for him.

Although some may blame the school or the teachers for the harassment Jackson endured, Dan doesn’t hold them responsible, and he doesn’t want others to either.

Instead, he wants to place the blame where it belongs—on the parents who neglected to instill in their kids the values of acceptance, decency, and compassion.

“I want parents to see my post and feel my heart break. Please educate your children and let them know that bullying is not OK. Please share this. This shouldn’t be happening to anyone”, Dan said.

Jackson’s appearance frequently drew criticism because he was born with Treacher Collins syndrome.

The uncommon disorder affects face tissues and bone development, leading to inappropriate growth and obvious deformities.

Sadly, he will require a lot more surgeries during his life.

Kids at Jackson’s school contacted Dan and his family after reading his post with offers to protect and befriend the boy.

Dan’s moving remarks even enabled Jackson to connect with two children who share his neighborhood and both suffer from Treacher Collins syndrome. Now, they’re arranging to get together for a playdate.

Dan, overwhelmed by the reaction, set up a PO box for people to mail Jackson letters or cards, and the box has been rapidly filling up ever since!

Reading Dan’s pleading Facebook post and learning about the abuse Jackson has endured at the hands of other kids broke my heart. Bullying is something that should NEVER be tolerated.

Children may comment about what they see without thinking about the context or how they could make others feel, which makes a lot of bullying likely unintentional. But as Dan showed, a little knowledge may put a lot of suffering to rest.
